It is like asking if fake doctors are caught somewhere...shud we stop having real Doctors!
These people are "GODMEN" not gurus, to whom all and sundry go to get their material needs fulfilled is some imaginary miraculous way. They are cheating the masses exploiting their reverence for saffron and their greed and fear.
A real GURU, does not do miracles, or promise wealth or position or engage in Politics. All they do is......to give guidance to real aspirant in the spiritual path. They dont usually attract a crowd even, very few people are interested in what they offer!

Just because some incident has happened, does not mean the concept needs to be shelved. According to me, it is not prudent to blame the entire clan. There still are genuine Masters available who show the light. The concept of Guru- Disciple will remain and should be followed to as well.

Anyone who teach even a single syllable is a guru, the concept never dies.

"Gurus" are not to be sought somewhere else but are available in the most houses .They are the "Parents".Then comes the wise aged people.Self-proclaimed "Gurus" are sometimes difficult an enigma to understand as lots of facts're beginning to come out of the "gurus'" ashrams making our minds really confusing.

Faith on Self. You should be your Guru since you are the better judge for the self. No Guru will guide you because your all circumstances can't be known to them. You use your own SWOT analysis & decide.

No, you don't have to. You can continue having faith in him if you want to.
