Amritsar, September 21
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has declared to compile a book after conducting thorough research related to the Singh Sabha Movement that began in Punjab in the 1870s in reaction to the proselytising activities.
This book will have the detailed information about the qaumi (community’s) heroes related to the movement, its background, history, objective and achievements.
SGPC president Harjinder Singh Dhami said during a special seminar organised by the SGPC dedicated to the 150th foundation day of Singh Sabha Movement at Khalsa College here today.
On the occasion, a booklet about the Singh Sabha Movement written by Sikh scholar Dr Rajwinder Singh Joga and published by SGPC’s Dharam Prachar Committee was also released.
Dhami said that in the light of Gurbani, ancient Sikhs worked for the prosperity of the Sikh faith with one passion and that the need of the hour was that the Sikh community should be united and fight taking a lesson from our leaders of Singh Sabha and Gurdwara Reform movements.
