    AMRITSAR, JULY 19 (PTI)
    The Sikh Gurudwara Judicial Commission (SGJC) today expelled Bibi Jagir Kaur from the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabhandhak Committee (SGPC) for a period of five years for causing a loss of nearly Rs 2.5 crore to the highest Sikh religious body.


    Kaur was expelled from both the presidentship and the membership of the committee and also debarred her from becoming a member of any Gurudwara board for at least a period of five years, SGJC Chairman Kashmir Singh Patti announced here.

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!
