Sikh history to be rewritten: SGPC chief fullstory STAFF WRITER 20:43 HRS ISTPatiala, May 10 (PTI) In view of doubts raised by some scholars, the Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) today said the entire Sikh history would be reviewed and rewritten. A history department would be established at the Sikh University at Fatehgrah Sahib for the task, SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar told a new conference here. Some writers and scholars were raising controversies and spreading negative publicity about the Sikh history, he said. To put to rest such doubts, the SGPC, the apex religious body, would set up a department for reviewing and rewriting the history penned by Sikh and English scholars, Makkar said. On the "siropa" (robe of honour) presented to former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh during his visit to the Golden Temple yesterday, Makkar said he had sought a report in this regard from the SGPC Secretary.
