SGPC president Harjinder Singh Dhami and Punjab CM Bhagwant Singh Mann have made a debut in the latest 11th edition of ‘The Sikh 100’ list released by ‘The Sikh Group’, a UK-based global Sikh organisation.

‘The Sikh 100’ is an annual ranking documenting profiles of the most influential Sikhs chosen from around the world and across all sectors, including business, education, media, entertainment, sports and charity.

In the 2022 list, Dhami was positioned at third place among the powerful 100 Sikhs on global level in 2022, followed by Mann at the fourth position.

Dhami, an SGPC member from the Sham Chaurasi segment since 1996 and SAD member, was elected president of the mini Sikh Parliament consecutively for two terms in 2021-2011 and 2022-2023.
