I agree that action should be taken against Chief of "Dera Sacha Sauda"

But should not the Sikhs also look within themselves for reform? Are the members of Sikh organisations like SGPC and DSGMC role models for the Sikh Youth? How many of them shun the consumption of alchohol which was prohibited by Guru Gobind Singh as strongly as use of tobbacco?

Sikhism was started as a casteless society. But we now more casteist than Hindus themselves. Ther were riots some time back in Jalandhar when "lower caste (?!) Sikhs wanted to be part of Sangat of "higher caste"(??!!) Sikhs!

Should not the various Sikh Deras dotting the Punjab Landscape take up this movement instead of just organising "Kirtan durbars" which only seve to enrich certain ragis?

These are the questions we need to seriously ponder if we are to really revive Sikhism.
