    TOHRA/PATIALA: Cutting across party lines and political affiliations, thousands of people from different walks of life attended the 'antim ardas' of Joginder Kaur Tohra, wife of former SGPC president late Gurcharan Singh Tohra at his native village here on Friday.

    The CM announced a grant of Rs 25 lakh for setting up of a modern community centre at village Tohra, which will be well-equipped with all kind of services for promoting community life especially marriages of daughters with rural background.

    CM appreciated the announcement made by the SGPC president Jathedar Avtar Singh to set up an institute in memory of Jathedar Gurcharan Singh Tohra at Bhadurgarh near Patiala.

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!
