The Indian Quaterly Register 1924

Description The Bill for the control and management of Sikh Gurdwaras by an elected body of the Sikhs was passed in 1925. After this the representative Sikh body known as Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandhak Committee came into being. But before the passage of the Gurdwara Act and constitution of SGPC, the Sikhs had to wage a long drawn battle and make innumerable sacrifices for almost two decades to get their sacred shrines liberated from the illegal possession of British supported Mahants. This collection contains the extracts from the proceedings of the Punjab legislative council as well as authentic contemporary literature published on the several stages of the Gurdwara Bill as well as the Sikh/Akali Movement launched for the liberation of Sikh shrines. These articles taken from contemporary journal (1924) summarize the whole history of the Gurdwara movement. These essays provide valid information about this slice of Sikh history to the researchers of Sikh history[edit]
