SGPC to prepare Sikh students for govt exams

Amritsar, January 11

The SGPC has planned to open a centre that will provide coaching to ‘sabat surat’ Sikh students for competitive examinations. Besides, students of religious studies will be imparted graduate and postgraduate-level studies.

This was announced by SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur after holding a special interaction with Sikh intellectuals here today.

Kaur said Sikh intellectuals had given valuable insights on reprinting of puratan (old) books on Sikh history and the coming centenary days, which would be put into practice.

She said a plan was being mooted to open a centre dedicated to the upcoming 400th birth anniversary of Guru Teg Bahadur in April.

“The centre will prepare Sikh youth for IAS, IPS and other competitive examinations. Many Sikh devotees have offered to contribute in the project. Similarly, religious institutions run by the SGPC for preparation of preachers and ‘raagis’ will be revamped. Students studying in these institutions will be imparted bachelor and master-level education besides religious studies,” she said.
