An interview with Simran Jeet Singh
As we ponder the horrors of the massacre of 49 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand, we have to reckon with the fact that home-grown hatred and extremism has gone global. One of the great things about working with other faith groups is that we get to see how others view their mandate to fight hatred and extremism through the lens of their faith.
Simran Jeet Singh is one of today’s most influential Sikh thinkers. Simran holds graduate degrees from Harvard University and Columbia University, and he is the author of “Covering Sikhs,” a guidebook to help journalists accurately report on the Sikh community. Today we get to speak together about bias, advocating for each other, and the need for humility in a society where we feel that we have to know everything.
