The Singh Sabha movement sought to restore the Sikh religion to its former splendor and to bring back apostate Sikhs who had converted to other faiths. The Singh Sabha movement emerged in Punjab in 1870 as a response to Hindu, and Christian reform organizations (Arya Samaj, Brahmo Samaj), and Muslim proselytization (Aligarh and Ahmadiyah movements).

Singh Sabha Movement

It was founded at a time when the British had annexed and dissolved the Sikh Empire, orthodox Sikhs were rapidly switching to other religions, and the Khalsa had lost its clout. The goal of the movement was to promote the Sikh faith and restore Sikhism to its grandeur; generate and distribute Sikh historical and theological texts, and promote Gurmukhi Punjabi through media and periodicals.
