Adherents of Sikhism belong to one of the most visible and perhaps least understood religions in the world. This program describes the Sikh principles and lifestyle and documents the recent history and current state of Sikhism in India, Europe, and North America. Interviews with Sikh leaders and families, scholars, and human rights activists paint a picture of a brave, spiritual, and hardworking people subjected to varied levels of racial discrimination and, in India, harsh suppression and even massacres. Since the 1984 killing of Sikh fundamentalist leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and the retaliatory assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Sikh political leaders have continued to press for an autonomous homeland, which they call Kalistan.
