Jewish synagogue shooting | Smethwick WW1 Sikh soldier statue
On Oct. 27, a gunman entered the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, killing 11 people and injuring six more. This week – On Monday November 5th Muskegon, Michigan Community College’s Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies held a healing and solidarity gathering that brought people from all different religions together to honour all victims of incidents of hate. Rishi Singh was one of the many individuals at this solidarity event and we have him on the podcast.
A 10ft (3m) statue of a Sikh soldier has been unveiled in the Smethwick town centre to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One (WW1). The statue honours service personnel of all faiths from the Indian subcontinent who fought for Britain during WW1 and other conflicts.
When Pardeep Singh Nagra was a kid in Mississauga, he didn’t see Sikh soldiers in his history textbooks.
Now, the 45-year-old is standing in a room as the director of the Sikh Heritage Museum where you can read about the first Sikh soldier to win a Victoria Cross (Captain Ishar Singh, 1921)
