THE SAINT SOLDIER - Uncovering the Bhai Maharaj Singh Story (Singapore's 1st Sikh, full documentary)

20 Просмотры
Unlike many other diaspora communities, the Sikhs in Singapore can trace their origin to a single man - the 'saint soldier' from Punjab, Bhai Maharaj Singh. Hailed as one of the most 'wanted' men during the 19th century Anglo-Sikh wars, freedom fighter Bhai Maharaj Singh was exiled to Singapore as a state prisoner in 1850, after his infamous arrest by the British. More than 160 years since his death in Outram Prison, he is still widely remembered, and revered. From the pulses of Punjab to the lion city, and beyond - what keeps the 'saint soldier's' memorial thriving along Singapore's Jalan Bukit Merah? A fascinating story of a humble disciple's journey to a warrior, and a saint - one that weaves a captivating tale infusing Indian, British colonial and Singaporean narratives.
