This webinar has been generously sponsored by a SikhRI supporter.
Join us as T. Sher Singh explores the life of Maharaja Duleep Singh by juxtaposing the narrative the British propaganda machine had created around him, against the facts which have largely been either hidden or downplayed by historians to date. As a result, Duleep Singh's place in Sikhdom today is an ambivalent one and needs to be corrected, says T. Sher Singh, if we are to fully understand our past and chart our future."
