In addition Guru Ji added that God also rewards double folds for such a noble cause. In an answer to a question Guru Ji said that India is known as the country of sages and gurus' but when foreigners call it unclean then it really hurts a lot. So it is our responsibility to keep it neat and clean. He requested people not to litter by spitting, throwing fruits peels or wrappers on the road sides.
Answering to the reporters Guru Ji said that dishonesty, corruption, drug consumption etc all is considered sinful in every religion but still many people indulge in them. So, we must follow religion in real terms not just in words. Guru Ji said that the main aim is to keep the society away from all evils. As we need to keep our surroundings neat and clean similarly we need to keep ourselves neat and clean internally as well. Only this would lead to the cleanliness of the whole society.
Dera Sacha Sauda is actively involved in keeping a check on the growing population also. Referring to the 73rd alrutistic service namely KUL KA CROWN, started by the Dera Sacha Sauda, Guru Ji said that now the girls will also carry the name of the family, as the families who have two or more than two boys will marry the girls who are the only child of their parents and such girls will continue staying at their paternal home along with her groom after marriage. And the groom will stay at the bride's home throughout his life. Till now three such marriages have been performed in the Dera Sacha Sauda . Further Guru Ji said that the foremost duty of the children is to serve their parents, which they are shirking nowadays. So, an orphanage for such old parents is in the pipeline so that such children should feel ashamed to leave their parents here.
A book bank and a toy bank are also there in the dera where the needy and the poor children are given books and toys free of cost. In addition to this the sangat is also paying for the education of the poor children. Moreover, a drive is also started by the dera and the devotees to end female feticide and thousands of pledge-forms have been filled up till now. On the request of the reporters Guru ji sang a hymn "DRUG NA LENA RY, NASHA NA LENA RY" Guru Ji told that 138 humanitarian services are being carried out simultaneously such as blood, eye and kidney donation, after death body donation, widow remarriage, and etc. More than 6 lakh people have pledged regarding this. Guru Ji told the media that till now 14 Guinness World Records and 8 Asia records have been made in blood donation, medical camps and tree plantation. Guru Ji said that their motive is not to create records other than to serve the society and be a tenacious-worker (karamyogi) and knowledgeable (gyanyogi). Besides that it (campaigns) has been possible with the enthusiasm of sadh sangat (devotees) and the grace of God. Further Guru Ji said that the girls those involved in the human trafficking and willing to leave it are always welcomed in Dera Sacha Sauda and they are adopted by Guru Ji as daughters and entitled as SHUH DEVI and the boys who marry them are entitled as BHAGAT YODHA.
