As a true Gursikh, he ever engaged himself in disseminating the message of Guru Granth Sahib, the scripture of the Sikhs. He was a member of the Dharam Prachar Committee, SGPC, Amritsar, and his name figured prominently on every committee formed by the same to address issues related to the Sikhs and their Faith. A prolific writer, he has edited and authored several books and well researched articles, highlighting the issues that need to be addressed, and founded institutions to cater to these. In short, his contribution towards safe-guarding, invigorating and propagating the Sikh value System, as preached by the Gurus, is immense, which shall aid in furthering the march of the Sikh Panth in particular and humanity in general towards its destined glory.
