S. Gurpreet Singh then read out three resolutions summarizing the day's proceedings.
1. We are indebted to the Great Gurus from Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh for giving us by their guidance; lines in our scriptures give prominent stress to women, even higher than men.
2. Guru Mahals and other great women have set examples for us in the Sikh life of simran, sewa and sacrifice and kept high standards in Sikhi in their off-springs. We request all our mothers, sisters and daughters to follow their examples in their lives and lives of their children.
3. We are of the considered view that all Sikh Institutions be requested to monitor problems of Sikh women in their homes, in matter of dowry and foeticide and the like and to recommend steps to solve these issues with the help of all concerned.
The Seminar concluded with a vote of thanks by Bhai Ashok Singh, Spokesman of the IOSS.
