Abstract:
The main function of Shiromani Akali Dal was to reform the Gurudwara. At that time the condition of the Gurudwaras was very miserable. The Shiromani Akali Dal also organized several Morchas for the control of the Gurudwaras to be given in the hands of the Sikhs, such as Guru Ka Bagh Morcha, Chabian Da Morcha, Nankana Sahib Da Morcha and Jaito Da Morcha etc. Many Sikhs were martyred in those fronts and many were arrested. Yet all allies conquered the Akalis and made committee for the management of Gurudwaras. This ended the Gurudwara Reform Movement. Thus the period from 25th June, 1925 to 20 October, 1926 was very valueable in terms of the organization of the Shiromani Akali Dal.
