Recently a person by the name of ‘Avtaar Singh’ wrote an Editorial titled, ‘Sikh Education in Western Countries.’ This Editorial was found in places including the North American Sikh Review of the January 2016 edition. Sikh Education is not controversial, but when approached from a certain perspective it can be, and this can include the controversial WH McLeod.
This editorial spoke of “suitable Sikh academic programs and chairs for Sikh studies at several universities.” It took a very one sided approach of these academic programs and Sikh study chairs. It mentioned a few Sikh study chairs by name, and also mentioned a few personalities by name. Some personalities were academics themselves, involved in chairs, and others were not academics.
We must all be aware of another perspective as well.
There has also been controversy in Sikh academic chairs, and people should be aware of it.
