Join us this afternoon as Harinder Singh, thinker, educator, activist, will be speaking at the International Conference on Women and Sectarian Violence in South Asia: Fiction and Reality.

Gender-based violence remains a profound challenge in contemporary times across the globe. Though female subjugation is a significant cause of gendercide, it is almost never presented as an issue deemed to be of utmost religious sensitivity. This paper draws together the four compositions of Guru Nanak Sahib, the founder of Sikh faith, as an eye-witness account of the genocidal campaign in the sixteenth century to present the plight of all South Asian women in 1521. It also reviews violence against Sikh women in 1984 and explores the recent post 1984 archiving of violence against Sikh women and their narratives. This paper challenges the social attitudes and beliefs that undergird religion-based men's violence towards women.
