    The Descendants of Mewa Singh or Bela Singh? A Generational Decision for British Columbia’s Sikh Community

    Generation-defining events (approximately every 25 years) for the Sikhs have been centered in Punjab: in the 1940s, it was the partition; in the 1960s, it was the birth of the Punjabi Suba; in the 1980s and 1990s, it was the Sikh independence movement.  For the generation of the 2010s, we are at the precipice.  While Punjab will always be the center, still the diaspora has always played a prominent role.  This week ground zero is British Columbia! Nowhere in the diaspora has been more critical than in British Columbia, Canada.  From the birth of the Ghadar movement to bringing voice to the Khalistani movement, BC has been at the center of Sikh activism.  However, while the lower mainland has been home to some of the most inspiring Sikhs whom we remember with pride, it has also been the grounds for some of the worst moments for the community as well.
