    SGPC gen secy for appointment of 600 'dharam parcharks'

    Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee general secretary Sukhdev Singh Bhaur on Monday suggested that the committee should appoint 600 'dharam parcharks' (preachers) across the state. Addressing a Gurmat Camp of teaching staff of religious institutions organised by Dharam Parchar


    Committee of the SGPC, Bhaur admitted that the Sikh religion was not being preached properly as the 'dharam parcharks' of the SGPC were not reaching out to people thus creating a religious void.
    Bhaur said there are around 12,000 villages in the state and the SGPC should appoint at least 600 'parcharks'. Each 'parchark' will cover 20 villages in a month and will visit the village assigned to him 12 times a year.

    He said the work of these 'parcharks' should be to get all feedback about Sikhs living in these villages, their problems and how the SGPC can solve these. SGPC executive member Karnail Singh Panjoli also spoke on the occasion.

    Whether this is good or bad is an open question. SGPC openly embraces Sant Samaj. What will these "dharam parcharaks" teach? The outreach can backfire on the panth in more than one way.

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!
