16 July, 2022 – Amritsar : In a move ‘parallel’ to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee’s (SGPC’s) ‘Dharam Parchar Lehar’, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has declared to launch an identical drive to curb ‘conversion’ in Punjab. This drive would be initiated from Amritsar shortly.
DSGMC president Harmeet Singh Kalka said the Delhi Sikh body would soon open its office at Guru Tegh Bahadur Nivas in Amritsar. “We plan to kickstart the ‘Dharam Parchar Lehar’ in Punjab within a span of 10 days in which our Sikh preachers will visit different parts of the state,” he said.
On its part, the SGPC’s Dharam Parchar Committee has been running campaign ‘Ghar Ghar Andar Dharamsaal’ since Bibi Jagir Kaur’s tenure in Punjab. The aim was to counter the impact of conversion in which Sikh preachers have been visiting remote villages and border belt to propagate Gurbani, Sikh Rehat Maryada (code of conduct), Sikh history and Sikh principles.
