U.S. Sikhs Hire Hillary Clinton's Ex-Strategist For Changing Perception

"Sikhs have been part of American scene since we first immigrated to North America 100 years ago and there is no one better than Garin to properly conduct a study that can show how Sikhs can dispel the misperceptions about our community and portray us as part and parcel of American society," he said.
Dr Rajwant Singh, chairman of Sikh Council on Religion and Education said Garin will head an unprecedented campaign that will examine Sikhism and its current place within the American psyche.
"This study led by Garin will help us tailor our message effectively and help us launch the biggest PR campaign for Sikhism and Sikhs in America. It will create an conducive environment for Sikhs to rise politically, socially and economically even more.
"The National Sikh Campaign is an undertaking that will require participation and support of all sections of the community," Singh said.
