What is a Sarbat Khalsa?
A Sarbat Khalsa was traditionally held twice a year to coincide with Vaisakhi and Bandi Chhor Divas, where Sikhs of all backgrounds would gather to debate and discuss the issues of concern to the Panth. The Sarbat is but one of a number of political forums that were introduced by the House of Guru Nanak for people to take control of their society and in so doing, their own destinies.
The voices of Sikhs in the Diaspora are almost entirely unrepresented in Punjab, but those of young people and females in particular are even less so. Harinder Singh of the Sikh Research Institute is presently in Punjab and has been working towards greater clarity at the Sarbat – he is taking time out to respond live to the questions of young people here in the West. Ask away!
