I’m looking at this book, History and Culture of Punjab, published from New Delhi and there’s something odd about it. Dedicating a mere 15 pages—one chapter—to the centuries before Sikhism, it practically starts from the time of Guru Nanak and focuses on the development of Sikhism thereafter for a hundred pages before coming back to the rest of Punjab, again with a focus on Sikhs. This is something we do here in Pakistan, starting everything from Mohammad Bin Qasim and focusing primarily on Muslims.

So we aren’t that different after all, eh?
