Malaysian Gurdwaras Council (MGC) is finally moving ahead on the social media front.

The council, representing 110 out of the 121 gurdwaras in Malaysia, has refurbished its website and rolled out an e-magazine.

The first of its e-magazine began reaching gurdwara members this week. In most gurdwaras, the 20-page pdf magazine is then forwarded to members via Whatsapp and other social platforms.

“The plan is to produce it quarterly,” MGC executive committee Balvinder Singh tells Asia Samachar.

The revised website, which went live about two months ago, carries circulars issued by MGC to its member gurdwaras.

The MGC social media team is led by its vice president Karamjeet Singh. The team includes Balvinder and Amanjeet Singh.

In the past, MGC had been seen as a laggard when it comes to the usage of the social media for communication with its members and the wider public.

  1. The last MGC E-LETTER is in Aug 2016.
    Haaving a website indicates MGC is moving with times but not keeping it current and updated indicates lack of expertise or possible ‘tidak apa’ attitude of the MC president and his team.
    Will the President provide details on AMOUNT EXPENDED ON THE WEBSITEsince its launch and WHO GOT PAID AND HOW MUCH?
    ACCOUNTABILITY STARTS WITH TRANSPARENCY and if TRANSPARENCY IS MISSING THEN IT MAY BE PERCEIVED that there may be perception that there may be some possible of MFCCCEBKN which may be covered-up by MC. Hope I am wrong but any misconception can only be removed by justifications of usage of funds. Failure to do the right thing may give rise to another wrong perception that those holding positions in MC may be more interested in the KERUSI and may think that none in the Sanggat has any locus standi to question the MC.
    SILENCE MAY INDICATE ARROGANCE.
    APOLOGIES AS NO MALICE INTENDED AGAINST ANY ONE.
    Gur Fateh
