“Although Guru Nanak’s teachings of equality and tolerance resonate with American audiences and are foundational values for American society, very few of our neighbors and Western society at large know anything about Guru Nanak Dev Ji,” said Gurwin Ahuja the executive director of the National Sikh Campaign (NSC) in a statement to RNS. The documentary broadcast is one piece of a campaign launched by NSC to bring more awareness to the Sikh faith….
For Sikh-Americans, the airing of the documentary is part of a wider effort to raise awareness of the world’s 5th largest religion by a number of followers as we head into the New Year. The campaign is part of a larger goal to garner acknowledgement of key dates in the life of the faith’s founder.
