The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), which is referred to as mini Parliament of Sikhs, has decided to get Sikh history re-written following research in this regard.
For this, SGPC has constituted a five-member committee, including Punjabi University Vice-Chancellor Dr Jaspal Singh and historian Dr J S Grewal. SGPC Secretary Roop Singh will be the co-ordinator of the panel.
"There has been a long pending demand from both across the country and abroad that a research should be conducted on Sikh history so that it could be written afresh," SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar said.
When contacted, SGPC Administrative Secretary Dalmegh Singh said the idea aimed at look for comprehensive details about Sikh history so that doubts and confusions caused could be clarified. "Following the research, the book will be published by SGPC," he added.
"The panel will conduct a research by sifting through the archives and books on Sikh history. We will also seek feedback from scholars and historians who have already written books on Sikh history," Dr Jaspal Singh said.
