Amritsar, January 13

SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur and actor Diljit Dosanjh have been named among the 100 most influential Sikh personalities in the world by a UK-based global Sikh organisation.

Both made their debut in the latest 9th edition of “The Sikh 100” list announced by “The Sikh Group”, a global organisation recognising Sikhs from across the world.

Kaur has been recognised as the second most powerful Sikh personality at the global level in 2020. The first position has been retained by Takht Hazur Sahib Jathedar Giani Kulwant Singh, who was declared the most influential Sikh in 2019 as well.

Talking to The Tribune, The Sikh Group founder Navdeep Singh said: “The Sikh 100 is an annual ranking, documenting profiles of some of the most influential Sikhs from around the world and across all sectors, be it business, education, profession, media, entertainment, sports or charity.”

Diljit, who supported the farmers’ agitation against the farm laws and donated a huge amount, secured the 62nd position. — TNS
