Complaint about Picture /Poster/Calendar of Sikh Guru Sahib in Advertisements sign now

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh!

I agree that no one really knows what Guru Nanak Dev Ji looked like,
yet over the years his image has been drawn and painted according to
the imagination of the artist. A historical portrayal does not bother
me as much as what is going on today. Majority of the Sikhs live in the
land of idol worshippers.
Entrepreneurs have gone one step forward and produced statues of Guru
Nanak Dev Ji. Glittering gold plated statues, some with lights flashing
around them can be seen on dashboards of cars/taxis in Delhi and
Punjab. People have them in their homes, bow to them, place flowers in
front of them, light lamps, fold their hands and bow in reverence.
Miniature portraits adorn gold lockets which Sikh men and women wear
around their necks proudly. Large portraits of Guru Nanak Dev Ji hang
in the homes of some Sikhs, they invariably hang in shops of Sikh
Businessmen. Images of Guru Sahib are engraved on Silver coins. During Diwali merchants distribute these
coins to their loyal customers, Gullible Sikhs are doing the same with
Silver coins with Guru Nanak Dev Ji's image.
Has the SGPC raised any voice against this practice, I have not heard
any directive to stop this, if anyone has, then please let me know, or
lets start a campaign to start writing letters to the SGPC, DSGPC and
any other Sikh organization that matters, those who have influence
should meet with the representatives of these organizations, each one
of us can start talking against such practices, educate the vendors who
sell such items, something must be done.
If we do not do anything, we will soon become another idol worshipping
religion.It is always easier to
bow to a deity, than to read, comprehend, and then apply the Guru Shabd
to ones life.

It is time we start holding our leadership responsible for degradation
of our religious practices.
