I don't know education system in other countries. But in india why the sikh history is not included in education system. Different wars in vietnam, french revolution little bit about indian history, thats it??we study about whole world's history its good but it is not foolish thing as we forgetting our sikh history, their sacrifices and all they made us to live our life purposefully. Bhul chuk maaf krna ji

You bring up a great point. In my country we don’t learn about Sikh history either. I am surprised to learn that this doesn’t happen in India! I think it’s something that you would have to advocate for and maybe bring a group together and go through the proper procedures for getting the curriculum changed officially. Change doesn't really happen by itself unfortunately. I don't know why they haven't realized that we have a lot more history to learn than just european cultures.

Of course we do learn Sikh history through katha at the Gurdwara but its not the same as learning from the start all of what happened in our history. I think Khalsa schools in my country have a separate class to teach Sikh history. The other place for education is obviously our homes. If it isn’t happening at schools then we teach each other, our children, and ourselves.
