The Sikh Symposium

Tragic indeed are the events happening in India. Whatever we can do to ameliorate the situation we should contribute, individually and collectively, and as much possible. But there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about the basic causes. No doubt the Government of India is doing its utmost to depict the Sikhs as the villains. It is our duty, as far as possible, to understand the issues ourselves and to inform the public at large. With this objective in view, we are planning a two day Symposium.

The Sikh Symposium organized by The Sikh Social and Education Society, is being cosponsored with. The World Sikh Organization of Canada and other Sikh organizations. Topics include: Sikh Identify, Struggle of Sikhs since 1947, Human Rights in India and the Sikhs, Cultural and Economic restraints on Sikhs in India, Role of the Foreign Press and Governments, and Sikhs vs. Polish struggle.

The Symposium will commence on Saturday, May 25, 1985 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Sunday May 26, 1985 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. It will be held in the Auditorium of The North view Heights Secondary School, 550 Finch Avenue West (Finch and Bathurst).


  1. $15.00 for couples.
  2. $10.00 per individual.
  3. $5.00 for students (high school) and Seniors.

All concerned Sikhs are invited to participate. Free lunch and coffee/tea/soft drinks will be provided. For further information please contact the coordinator.

Yours sincerely, Pritam Singh Coordinator 4214680
