‘Forced conversion to Christianity’; Sikh leader for the national campaign

Amritsar: A Sikh cleric has been accused of forcibly converting people to Christianity in the border areas of Punjab. Akal Takht Jathar Giani Harpreet Singh has said that the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) will campaign against the forced conversion of Christian missionaries among Dalits in the border areas of Punjab. He claimed that there had been proselytizing efforts in the area in recent years and that proselytizing was being done to seduce the poor. Gianni Harpreet Singh claimed that he had received several such reports. Akal Takht Jathedar is considered the leader of the Sikh religion. Gianni Harpreet Singh, who currently holds the position, is from the Dalit Sikh community. He spoke on the occasion of the 101st anniversary of the admission of Dalits to the Golden Temple of Amritsar and Akal Takht.

He said there would be a massive campaign within the community to combat forced conversion. According to the Indian Express, he said that this was an anti-Sikh raid and that Sikh priests would go to the villages and distribute religious books as part of the campaign. “Religion has to do with spirituality. Forced conversion or temptation cannot be justified. Forced conversion is a big problem. Everyone must cooperate with the SGPC to strengthen the campaign against it.” The website reported that it said. He said that the SGPC campaign would be nationwide and would initially begin in the worst affected areas. The SGPC had alleged that it was not doing enough to stop the exodus of Sikhism, as there was much discussion on social media about the activities of Christian missionaries in rural areas. It was in this context that the Sikh clergy launched their model missionary campaign. According to the Hindustan Times, the campaign has already started with 150 groups returning home and conducting religious studies for children in the evenings. They hope that the new movement will not only bring more information about Sikhism to the people, but also make the younger generation proud of their religion and tradition.

At the same time, the Punjab director of the Dalit and Minority Organization, Dr. KS Kashmir Singh commented. He said they were telling Dalits that conversion would make it easier to migrate abroad. Missionaries are raiding Dalit houses for this purpose. However, he noted that the SGPC was not making such an attempt.
