BIG BREAKING NEWS – MASS CONVERSIONS?: Special Drive to Counter Alleged Mass Conversions to Christianity [#SGPC] 10/10

Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has recently launched a special drive to counter alleged mass conversions of Sikhs to Christianity in Punjab.

Amid videos showing proselytizing activities of Christian missionaries in the state being shared widely on social media, the apex Sikh body has come under criticism from within the community for not doing enough to “protect” the faith.

Named “Ghar Ghar Andar Dharamsaal (sacred shrine within every home)”, the SGPC campaign is adopting means used by Christian preachers and other traditional methods to spread Sikh literature and teachings across villages in the state.

Under the campaign, 150 teams comprising 7 preachers each have been dispatched to villages. They stay in the village for a week, and go from door to door to distribute Sikh literature.

In the evening, they gather children at the local gurdwara to teach them the correct recitation of gurbani (hymn) and create awareness about the Sikh history, culture and philosophy.

Thereafter, diwan (religious congregation) is staged by the preachers, dhadis (ballad singers) and kavishars (folk singers) to sensitize the community members about their faith and values.
