SIKLIGAR: A Documentary On The Original Weapons Makers Of The Sikhs


Jun 1, 2004
A documentary portraying the lives of the Sikligar Sikhs, the blacksmiths/ironsmiths and weapon makers of the Khalsa Army of the Sikhs. Very little is known about the Sikligars in and outside of India, as they have been displaced through years of colonization and government oppression.

Originally named Sikligar by the 10th Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, they now live in the slums of Rajasthan, Delhi, Agra, and beyond. Illiterate for the last 300 years, the Sikligars are beginning to empower themselves through different means. Learn about their history, their current state, and what is being done to assist in the growth and development of this community.

I wish there were more initiatives to help the Sikligar community. They are religious and hardworking people, and a few I have met were really good at heart...
