On June 26, members of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee—or SGPC, the elected apex body managing the religious affairs of Sikhs—assembled at its headquarters in the Teja Singh Samundri Hall at the iconic Golden Temple complex in Amritsar. It was a special general house session of the SGPC convened with a single-point agenda: to condemn the recent amendments in the Sikh Gurdwaras Act, 1925, pushed by the Bhagwant Mann-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) regime in Punjab.
