SCIR coordinated the Sikh participation and presentations at the 2015 Salt Lake City Parliament of the World’s Religions. In view of the upcoming Parliament, SCIR has established a 2018 Parliament Sikh Task Force. The charge of the Parliament Sikh Task Force is to coordinate and implement the active participation of the worldwide Sikh community at the upcoming parliament through:

– significant international Sikh presence and engagement,
– presentations at plenary and parallel sessions focused on interfaith and intrafaith issues, and
– Guru ka Langar, if possible, at the parliament to be led by the local Sikh community.

The task force members include Sikh representatives from Canada, US, and across the world. Dr. Satpal Singh, Trustee of SCIR, serves as Convener of the Task Force. Suggestions and queries about Sikh participation in the upcoming parliament can be emailed to

The Parliament of the World’s Religions was created to cultivate harmony among the world’s religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful and sustainable world.
