unfortunatley this is happening due to cultural clashes when living in another country.

So true. Also, many of us have to grow up with our parents views on things before we can figure things out for ourselves. If parents arent the greatest of people then it's no surprise the kids get sucked into firangi culture.

There are number of reasons for this. The biggest problem has been the lack of parchar and the shortage of qualified parcharaks.

The knowledge of one's relegion starts from home. That is the biggest let down as quite a few Sikh parents today have no time or the inclination to teach the basics of Sikhism to their children. They donot even teach their mother language to them. If on one hand, young Sikh children tend to speak English in the Western countries, on the other hand back home, Hindi is spoken to the children. The parents cannot preach about the fundamental tenents of Sikhism , for example, the keeping of kesh, when they themselves are patit. This problem is becoming more and more serious by every passing day and needs drastic action from the Sikh panth.

English isn't used as the main language to lure them in. Sadly Panjabi isn't the language they understand due to the parents lack of teaching it because they've been to busy in pubs and watching Zee TV and neglected them, but now they are older it's a case of closing the stable door after the horse has bolted.

One thing that needs to be nipped in the bud is this growing trend amongst Sikh-born people to categorise themselves as Panjabi first, Sikh second. Its usually people who like a drink and a party. So rather than change themselves and their habits they've begun to attack the faith and portray those who have affinity for Sikhi as backwards and extreme. Why these type of people have suddenly found the confidence to do these things is a mystery.

    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway. 
    • Because Naamdharis are absolute masters at kirtan. Simple. On the topic of Akal Takht, it doesn't really hold the same authority as it did in the past. Just look at the people running it and you'll get what I mean. Most the panth, outside of stuff like Tankhaya, don't care about anything they have to say.
