SGPC selects 117 volunteers to counter wrongful religious conversion

AMRITSAR: The SGPC has selected 117 volunteer preachers in the border areas to connect the people with Sikh principles and rehat maryada. Main purpose of deploying these volunteers is to deal with the religious conversion being carried out by so-called pastors and bishops who have been disowned by Main Line Churches of India, in wrongful manners.

The Sikh volunteers deputed by the SGPC are educated from Sikh Missionary Colleges and Gurmat Vidyalayas run by its Dharam Parchar Committee.

Speaking on this, SGPC president Dhami said the matter of religious conversion was on the rise and the need was to identify it at the grassroots and society must be got aware of misguided propaganda. Our volunteers will reach out to the misguided people and bring them back to the Sikhism fold.

The SGPC has taken this decision during a meeting of Dharam Parchar Committee days after Punjab Police booked two so-called pastors under the charges of hurting religious sentiments for forcing a Sikh family to embrace Christianity.

Meanwhile, Dhami released commemorative coins and religious booklets in Urdu dedicated to the upcoming centenary of Shaheedi Saka Sri Panja Sahib and Morcha Guru Ka Bagh.

After the meeting held at Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee office, Dhami said on October 30, the first centenary of the Saka Sri Panja Sahib is being observed according to the Khalsa traditions, for which preparations are on. Before this, the centenary celebrations of Morcha Guru Ka Bagh have been completed the last month.
