Sikh teen writes a book on US bullies


NEW YORK: A Sikh-American teenager has penned a book about bullying of children from the community in the US based on his experiences and that of others to raise awareness on the issue.

Karanveer Singh Pannu, an 18-year-old high school student from New Jersey, has written the book ‘Bullying of Sikh American Children: Through the Eyes of a Sikh American High School Student’.

“Sikh-American youth are largely unrepresented and do not seem to have a voice on the national stage or in the media, especially when it comes to bullying,” Pannu told NBC News.

“I wanted to help in any way I could to alleviate this pain and suffering which children from my faith go through on a daily basis,” he said.

In the book, Pannu introduces the Sikh faith and discusses the significance of the turban and the history of Sikhs in the United States.

He also details the results of a bullying survey he conducted of Sikh-American children in order to draw from their experiences as well as his own.
