Since Partition, internal Sikh Panthak politics has been interwoven with larger Panjab and Indian political machinations. How did we get to this stage and what is the current state of Panthak politics vis a vis Panjab today? This freewheeling discussion will allow SikhRI’s Senior Fellow, Research & Policy, Harinder Singh, to touch on a variety of topics and ideas.
This event will be moderated by Santbir Singh.
