    'Pracharaks' should spare a month for Sikh Panth: Akal Takht

    Phagwara: Akal Takht on Monday urged the 'pracharaks' or preachers to "donate time" by sparing a month every year for the Sikh Panth in order to take the message and philosophy of Sikhism to every house.

    Gurbachan Singh, head of the top temporal seat of the Sikh community, made the call while addressing the valedictory function of the three-day 'Naam Simran Gurmat Samagam' here.



    "Those 'pracharaks' who can afford to donate time and have fulfilled family responsibilities should volunteer to spare one month for Panth", Singh said.

    "This type of donation of time, along with traditional donations, was necessary for carrying the message of Sikhism to different places the world over, saving our youths from apostasy, drugs and other evils and for respecting women, especially the girl child", he said.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
