    "What we ought to do is start cultivating in our school systems an appreciation for our differences, celebrating our cultures in a way that's inclusive as opposed to divisive." -Sikh Coalition Senior Religion Fellow, Simran Jeet Singh

    NBC News features Simran Jeet and SUNY-Buffalo Professor, Satpal Singh in its "Life Stories" short documentary series.

    From growing up in the "only turbaned family in San Antonio" to appearing on "The Daily Show," faith has always been an important part of Simran Jeet Singh's life. The professor and Sikh Coalition fellow says the end goal of Sikhism is love, and that even though Sikhs have been the target of discrimination for decades, it is important to act with kindness and respect toward others.

    Sim, as he is known by, is a great guy. His dad founded a multi million dollar defence contracting company, the first Sikh owned company in the US, which he later sold for a huge profit. One of the last pictures of his with his wife Gunisha and his parents was taken with my niece and her new hubby at their reception last year.
