Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee

The Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee is a Sikh religious organisation in Pakistan. Its creation and organisation is sponsored by the Government of Pakistan. Similar to the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) in India, the organisation is entrusted with the maintenance of Sikh religious institutions, places of worships (gurdwara) and the well-being of the Pakistani Sikh community. Its main organisation is based in Lahore in the province of Punjab. However, the PSGPC is opposed by the SGPC, which regards itself as the sole guardian of Sikh institutions and religion worldwide.

Famous quotes containing the word committee:

    In America every woman has her set of girl-friends; some are cousins, the rest are gained at school. These form a permanent committee who sit on each other’s affairs, who “come out” together, marry and divorce together, and who end as those groups of bustling, heartless well-informed club-women who govern society. Against them the Couple of Ehepaar is helpless and Man in their eyes but a biological interlude.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)
