Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Harjinder Singh Dhami said that the volunteers have been selected as the matter of religious conversion was on the rise and the need was to identify it at the grassroots and society must be aware of misguided propaganda.

“Our volunteers will reach out to the misguided people and bring them back to Sikhism,” he added.

He further added that SGPC is working on this matter at the ground root level and the purpose of the Committee is to connect misguided people.
