Have you guys noticed since militancy ended in mid 90s where real Sikh leaders fought and died for Sikhi and Sikh principles. We the sikh community worldwide have been left with bunch of cuck weak Sikh leaders who are under the army jackboot of the indian government. When I look back at the speeches of sant bhindranwale he talked about reviving good values in people and to stay away from intoxicants and fighting the good fight for equal rights/treatment for Sikhs being a minority in the Indian union. Nowadays fake Sikh leaders like captain amrinder singh and badals promoted captalism and corruption and covert nashay distribution. Today's Sikh leaders go by the following slogan "better to live a 100years as a donkey than 1 year of a lion". They look for self preservation of themselves and their relatives they dont really give a damn about the 30 million+ Sikh kaum and desh out there in the world. And these are the leaders that Gurbani talks about and exposes (e.g hypocrites and rich men, oppression of the weak/minorities).
