Dr. Amarjit Singh, said Sikhs have been moving forward for centuries and will continue to do so. Sikhs have fought hatred and discrimination in India’s caste system, in armies that fought Nazi Germany and in American civil rights conflicts, he added.
“Sikhism stood then,” he said, adding it will also stand now.
“We hope that the racists, those divisive forces, those people who just care for their own race, their own system … are defeated.” Jesse Jackson is reported to have said on this occasion.
