Sikh Museum Initiative looks at the relationship between the British and the Sikhs.


There has been a long history linking the Sikhs to the British since the eighteenth century. This history is relatively unknown and requires an initiative to bring closer introspection and investigation. As a result the Sikh Museum Initiative (SMI) will focus on locating and uncovering relics and artefacts which bind the two communities together. This national programme will leave a lasting legacy for future generations so understand the close relationship that exists.

The buying and selling of Gurbani for a buck




Stone printed manuscript of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib, withdrawn from sale. 

Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh

The Sikhs respect the word of the Guru formalised in the Sikh scriptures. Guru Granth Sahib represents the 'living Guru' of the Sikhs, whilst the Sri Dasam Granth represents the secondary or martial scripture. Gurbani or the auspicious words of the Gurus are considered most sacred. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries Sikh manuscripts were scribed for the Takhts and Gurdwaras.

Call for papers: 2nd International Sikh Research Conference



The annual International Sikh Research Conference (ISRC) has been established because there has been a serious neglect of Sikh Studies in the UK. Whilst there are many Sikh scholars studying and researching Sikh Studies, the subject is not highly recognised or represented at a national level in the UK.
