Recently reports have surfaced about a controversial conference entitled “Living and Making Sikhi in the Diaspora: the Millennial Generation Comes of Age.”
Who is the controversial WH McLeod or Hew McLeod?
The issue is not of a boycott. We must be well informed on who these people were. Not everyone who wants fair academic research done a “radical,” extremist,” “kharku” or any of these labels.
Pashaura Singh was a person who was questioned on his academic integrity, and questioned on not releasing his thesis to the public.

We are asking everyone to understand both sides. There is a very long history on these conferences, and academic chairs.
