Sri Amritsar, July 31, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Congratulating Kamalpreet Kaur of Sri Muktsar Sahib, who secured position in the final of discus throw sports event at Tokyo Olympics, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) President Bibi Jagir Kaur announced that to motivate the players, the SGPC will especially honour those Sikh players who will win any medals at the Olympic Games.

After chairing the meetings of the SGPC’s Dharam Prachar Committee and Education Committee at SGPC office on Saturday, Bibi Jagir Kaur said that it is a matter of great happiness that Kamalpreet Kaur has brightened the name of Sikhs after securing the position in the final at Olympics.

“On the selection of Kamalpreet Kaur for the Olympics, the SGPC had honoured her with Rs 2 lakh and she will be honoured again on her arrival”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

Talking about the decisions taken during the meetings of Dharam Prachar Committee and Education Committee, Bibi Jagir Kaur said that sub-committees have been formed to draw the plan for organising the events and seminars in Punjab as well as different states in the country dedicated to the 400th Prakash Purb (birth anniversary) of Sri Guru Teg Bahadar. She said very soon events will be started dedicated to this centenary.

She said that to methodically carry on the Dharam Prachar Lehar in India it has been decided to re-allocate the areas to Sikh Missions.

“In those states which do not have the Sikh Missions, their areas will be allocated to the already established Sikh Missions”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

SGPC President said that a Sikh Archives Project will be established at Jathedar Gurbachan Singh Tohra Institute of Sikh Studies, Bahadargarh, Patiala and a detailed report has been submitted in this regard by a sub-committee which will be implemented.

“Important historical documents of the Sikh community from the world-level will be made part of this Archives Project. SGPC is committed to preserve the Sikh heritage and connect the Sikh community from across the world and the plan of Sikh Archives Project has been drawn in this regard. England resident late Dr Darshan Singh Tatla, a scholar has played an important role in this project.

Although, he has passed away but his valuable work and views will be given special importance in the establishment of this important project. For the Sikh documents which were in the possession of Dr Tatla, his family will be contacted”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

Bibi Jagir Kaur added that in the meeting of the Education Committee, it was decided to run the educational institutions of the SGPC in much better manner.

“Those employees of the educational institutions that fulfill the criteria conditions will be regularised. Sub-committees would be formed to establish a liaison with the local committees of the educational institutions so that education policy can be implemented as per the local circumstances”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

On this occasion, SGPC senior vice-president Surjit Singh Bhitewad, junior vice-president Baba Buta Singh, chief secretary Harjinder Singh Dhami, SGPC executive committee member Ajmer Singh Khera, SGPC member Bhai Ram Singh, Dharam Prachar Committee members Bhai Ajaib Singh Abhyasi, Sukhwarsh Singh Pannu, Tejinderpal Singh Ladwa, Bhai Pritpal Singh Ladwa, Manjit Singh Bapiana, Rampal Singh Behniwal, additional secretary Sukhminder Singh, assistant secretary Simarjeet Singh, Kulwinder Singh Ramdas, Balwinder Singh Kahlwan, OSD Satbir Singh, OSD to SGPC president Dr Sukhbir Singh, superintendent Malkit Singh Beharwal and others were present.
