These two great warriors of the Sikh community had strengthened the Gurdwara Reform Movement by giving martyrdom to take over the management of Gurdwara Sri Darbar Sahib, Tarn Taran. The sacrifice of these martyrs cannot be forgotten.”
The SGPC president appealed to the sangat (congregation) to come forward to connect the children and youth with the glorious history of the Sikh community.

Government of India should rectify its mistake by repealing agriculture laws: Bibi Jagir Kaur
On the occasion of the centenary celebrations of the Saka Tarn Taran Sahib, SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give up his stubbornness. Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “It is unfortunate that tear gas shells were hurled at farmers in Delhi yesterday. This is happening because of the stubbornness of the Prime Minister of the country.
Such a situation would not have arisen if the government had considered the legitimate demands of the farmers. The government of India should listen to the farmers and rectify its mistakes by repealing the law.”
