Kendri Sri Guru Singh Sabha

Kendri Sri Guru Singh Sabha got its name registered in 1981 as a non-political body in order to carry forward the works of an association named Sri Guru Singh Sabha, which was formed in Amritsar on 1 October 1873. The association represented the whole panth and played a significant role in securing freedom of Gurudwaras in 1925 and also managed to gain approval for Anand Marriage Act in 1908.

Singh Sabha regularly emphasized that Sikhs are not Hindus and the total number of Singh Sabhas increased to 100 by the end of 19th century. The leaders of Singh Sabha worked very hard to ensure that Sikhs follow correct doctrine and practice and in this context, newly arrived print culture was widely used to spread Sikh history and literature. The leaders also worked towards promoting religious significance of learning Punjabi written in Gurumukhi script. Simultaneously, they also emphasized on the need to adopt Western education.

Major Initiatives

Singh Sabha took several major initiatives towards fulfilling their aim, including establishment of the famous Khalsa College in Amritsar as well as starting of hundreds of Khalsa Schools throughout Punjab. Singh Sabha also worked in close coordination with the British administration in order to make them understand the significance of treating Sikhs as a distinct political community.

Singh Sabha had several prominent leaders in its early years that contributed significantly, including Professor Gurmukh Singh and Giani Dit Singh.
