I just wrote the following letter to Parmarth which you can use as a template if you like for your own letter:

Dear Parmarth Niketan Ashram,

Sikhs and Hindus live peacefully together but we respect each other's religious practices and faith. Therefore, as a Sikh and one who respects all religious faiths, I request you to remove this pic on the front cover of your website contact page which depicts 3HO Sikhs, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa and her husband Gurushabad Singh Khalsa doing Hindu homa fire puja. http://www.parmarth.com/contact.html

Sikhs do not perform these Hindu rituals which are strictly forbidden by the Sikh Reht Maryada. http://gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?id=344

Please also cancel the upcoming Kundalini Yoga festival you are hosting on 11-11-11 which is being sponsored and run by 3HO Sikhs. This event should not be promoted or attended by Sikhs and violates the Sikh code of conduct.

As leaders in the Hindu community I am sure you can see the need to respect the different sympathies and faiths of other religions so please consider the request of 10,000 Sikhs from around the world to cancel this event. See this facebook cause to read the comments from thousands of Sikhs supporting the cause to cancel the 11-11-11 Kundalini Yoga festival: http://www.causes.com/causes/518356-call-to-truth-and-authentic-sikhism/about

Call to Truth and Authentic Sikhism
Support Sikh Rehat Maryada. Cancel Kundalini Yoga festival on 11-11-11
