Sikh24 Editors

Amritsar Sahib-Panjab-India, 10 August 2017. On August 8, the apex Sikh body Shromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee announced they would accept the demands of ‘Pathi’ (reciter of sacred texts) Singhs.

The aggrieved group had staged a protest inside the sanctum sanctorum Sri Harmandr Sahib on July 9 seeking a hike in wages and facilitation of other services like regular SGPC employees.

Interacting with media on August 8, the SGPC president Professor Kirpal Singh Badungar said that the ‘Pathis’ were a responsible and respectable class of the Sikh community and their demands have been accepted after receiving a nod from executive members.

He stated that the SGPC had appointed a sub-committee in this concern and now the SGPC has implemented the recommendations made by this sub-committee.
