New Entry for the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography
Posted by:Admin 27-04-2011
In the updates for 2012 it has been announced there will be four new Sikh entries in the DNB database of Oxford National Biography. Among these four Sikhs, we are proud to reveal that two of the Sikhs are Bhat SIkhs, namely Sundar Singh Sagar and Harnam Singh Koumi.
Sundar Singh was a pioneering Sikh and fought throughout his life for the rights of Sikhs, amongst his memorable campaigns were the right for Sikhs to wear a turban whilst working for the Manchester Buses, a campaign which took almost nine years, and in the 1974 he was instrumental in taking the case of the Turban-helmet to the forefront until it was passed in parliament that Sikhs could ride a motorbike wearing a turban.
Harnam Singh Koumi was one of the earliest Bhat Sikh in Britain, and a key figure of Bhat Community, a freedom fighter, political activist, active in the defence of Shaheed Udham SIngh, war-time Secretary of the Khalsa Jatha British Isles (Shepherds Bush Gurdwara) and amongst the founding members of the Gurdwaras in Bristol and Cardiff.
