So basically I been noticing the past couple of days that Sangat TV have been promoting/supporting the idea of Bhagat Ravidas being a Guru etc... So the first question I'd like to ask is whether Sangat TV considers itself a "Sikh Channel" after all in the Sikh Rehit Maryada we believe in 10 Guru's and thats it! So is Sangat TV now moving in a direction that it can no longer call itself a Sikh Channel?! Secondly I was actually watching one of the programmes where a very well respected individual Mohinderpal Singh stated the Ravidas community should not separate bani and form a new panth... and yet later on he goes on to say its important to have our own Nagar Kirtans, Gurdwaray etc so our voice is heard! Is that not a contradiction? I think its very unfortunate in regards to the direction Sangat TV are going! Absolutely every community needs to be represented HOWEVER by continuing to call Bhagat Ravidas Guru...they are outside the edicts of Sikhi... in my opinion. Its not like calling Bhagat Ravidas a bhagat is some sort of insult or demeaning!... I don't understand what the Ravidas communities opposition is? If they claim its some sort caste discrimination... its not like other "castes" are calling for other bhagats or sants to be called a Guru... furthermore its becoming apparent that in time the Ravidas community is moving further away from the Khalsa panth, just watching their programmes/speechs other than Monhinerpal Singh there is no other Kesh-dhari let alone Amrit-dhari Its just very disturbing/unfortunate that Sangat TV is allowing this to be promoted under its banner! They might aswell indulge Naamdharis and Radhoswamis whilst their at it!
