I was just watching a documentary on VPT World about the film maker's return visit from his home in England to the homeland of his ancestors in Sikh Punjab.
He spoke to one white bearded Sikh who told him that, at the time of the partition of India and Pakistan, his father, the village head man, had slaughtered all the girls in the village so the Muslims would not convert them to Islam.
The gentleman in the photo above has nothing to do with this post. I simply offer his photograph as an image of Sikh elders for those unfamiliar with the history.
