Komagata maru: sikh descrimination
The Canadian society wanted a "White man" society. The Canadian society were racist against the Sikh community. Canadians did not want different people to come to their country and change it up, such as Temples and more. The Canadian society made an excuse that Canada did not have a lot of development. Sikh people were called terrorist beacause of their beards and Turbans, mainly targeted for that reason.
Life In Canada :
Some Sikhs were allowed in Canada, however Sikhs had a bad life. Everyday Sikhs were beaten up and were forced to live in Abandoned areas. News Papers were racist against Sikhs, also Sikhs were restricted, some times to go to shops, and other necessary places needed for their lives. "White people", were not allowed to work for "non whites". Sikhs had low salaries (less money earned) and worked in log farms, built the rail way to B.C, built infrastructures and other jobs with low salaries.
We shall remember the Sikhs who came to Canada, who made this country diverse and Multicultural.
