Kam Singh of @1914Sikhs being Saluted by a regiment of Singhs in Marseille, in the south of France.100 years ago, members Sikh Community landed there as part of the battles on the Western Front in WW1.
Though war is often simplified by whatever side is telling the story. WW1 is significant for many reasons, and there’s an irony to having Singhs help liberate a country like France, who 100 years later now have “interesting” laws to promote their secularity, including not allowing any conspicuous religious symbols in schools (that includes hijabs & turbans).
Politricks aside, it’s nice to see the shirt has made it way across the ocean, and efforts are being made to highlight our rich heritage and contributions to world history.
