Discrimination of Sikhs

by Dale Penn

"In Germany they first came for the Communists; I did not speak because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the Jews; I did not speak because I was not a Jew. Then they came to fetch the workers, members of trade unions; I was not a trade unionist. Afterward, they came for the Catholics; I did not say anything because I was a Protestant. Eventually they came for me, and there was no one left to speak."

By Pastor Martin Niemoller

A Protestant Minister Imprisoned during Germany's Third Reich.

The layout above is not meant to be pretty or beautiful. The pictures and words are meant to express the truth, harsh as it may be. Discrimination is a plague on this world. No doctor can cure this disease, and no miracle cure is possible. Discrimination affects nearly every facet of our being, and yet we, as a people, have not come together to fight it. No matter who you are, or where you are, you have felt some type of discrimination at one point in your life or another. Religious discrimination, racism, nationality, height, weight, fashion, social status, health, the list is endless. No one is perfect, yet discrimination breeds on the assumption that one class of people are better in one way or another than any other class of people. The Sikh religion knows discrimination well. Since it's conception over 500 years ago, discrimination, hatred and anger have pitted themselves against the Sikhs and their communities. There are three main areas of discrimination where Sikh's have experienced their greatest battles; racial discrimination, religious discrimination, and stereotypes. This paper will try and discuss these three topics as well as relate the experiences of the Sikhs to other religions and ethnicities, and bring in the discussion of three main books regarding the Sikh religion; Making Ethnic Choices, Lions of the Punjab, and Fighting for Faith and Nation.
