Who are the Sikhs? Noel Cheer on Face Television

Who are the Sikhs?

The religion of the Sikh people came to birth about 600 years ago in the Punjab region of India –  the gateway to the Indian subcontinent for people from Greece, Central Asia and Iran. 

Simplistically put, Sikhism blends the Dharma-based religion of Hinduism with Abrahamic concepts from Islam.  

The guest this week In Conversation with Noel Cheer on Face Television is a member of the Sikh community in New Zealand, Mr Rajinder Bedi J.P.
