This book analyses Sikh communal identity as it was established in the Far East under the auspices of the British Empire. Focusing on Singapore with a comparative case study with Malaysia, where Sikh communities form a significant minority in terms of numbers and visibility and have had significant interaction with their respective post colonial states, the author charts the trajectory of assimilation of Sikh communal identity in Singapore and Malaya. Sikhs were part of the key events and occurrences in Southeast Asia such as the Japanese Occupation, the attainment of Independence and post independence.
The book examines the way forward for Sikh communities in these nations as communal identities are fast becoming blurred under the advent of global trends, such as the influence of Arabic versions of Islam on Malaysia, and globalisation.

This is the first booklength study of Sikh settlements in Southeast Asia. It will be of intererst to scholars of diaspora and minority studies, post colonialism, multiculturalism and South and Southeast Asian studies.
