Sikhs In Singapore – A Story Untold

Time:
Tue to Thu: 10am to 7pm
Fri to Sat: 10am to 8pm
Sun & Public Holidays*: 10am to 4pm (*closed on Public Holidays that fall on a Monday unless otherwise stated)
Closed on Mon
Fee: Free for Singaporeans and PRs

Sat Sri Akal! Co-created by members of Singapore’s Sikh community and the Indian Heritage Centre, Sikhs in Singapore – A Story Untold is presented in 3 parts – Roots, which tells the story of the origins of Singapore’s Sikh community; Settlement, which brings together some exemplary narratives of Sikh migrants to Singapore; and Contemporary Perspectives which offers glimpses into the experiences of some contemporary Sikhs.

Sikhs are followers of Sikhism, a religion that originated in the Punjab region around the late 15th century. Located at the crossroads of east, west and South Asia, the Punjab has historically been home to diverse faiths and cultural traditions. Consequently, the Sikh identity is a distinct combination of faith and ethno-linguistic roots.

Today, there are over 25 million Sikhs around the world, of whom 3 million belong to the international Sikh diaspora. The British annexation of the Punjab in the mid-19th century gave birth to a global dispersion of the Sikhs. With the formation of the Sikh Police Contingent in 1881, many Sikhs arrived in Singapore to seek employment as policemen, and then onwards the Sikh community gradually grew in numbers. Over the last 120 years the profile of the community has evolved, and this exhibition chronicles some stories of Sikhs, young and old, from diverse walks of life.

[Cerita Kita Series] Impact Of The 1824 Anglo-Dutch Treaty On The Politics Of Johor Riau

Venue: Malay Heritage Centre Auditorium / Facebook Live
Date: 27 Nov 2021
Time: 2pm to 4pm
Fee: Free

Speakers: Benjamin Khoo, Kwa Chong Guan, AP Peter Borschberg

This lecture will look into the mission of the Dutch ambassador Christiaan van Angelbeek to Riau in 1825 to explain to him the division of the Johor-Riau empire. Between 1819 and 1824 the Dutch government had promised the Riau court that they would preserve the unity of Johor-Riau. They now had the delicate task of explaining the Riau court that they were losing Johor, Pahang and Singapore.

From the documents, it transpires that the Yamtuan Muda Raja Jaafar did not want to divide his kingdom despite the Treaty of London, 1824 and that Angelbeek had to persuade him to do so. How did Angelbeek convince him? Why did Raja Jaafar decide to 'donate’ these lands? Did Sultan Hussein reply or accept this decision? And why wasn’t this widely known? These are some of the questions that we will try to explain based on the mission of this ambassador in 1825.

[Cerita Kita Series] Peranakan Singapura: Town Malays In Colonial Singapore And Their Forgotten Clubs, Associations And Built Legacies

Venue: Malay Heritage Centre Auditorium + Facebook Live (@malayheritage) Date: 11 Dec 2021
Time: 2pm to 4pm
Admission: Free

Speaker: Dr Imran Tajudeen

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a newspaper and a number of clubs and associations in Singapore employed the term Peranakan as their cultural designator. While the dominant present-day use of this term in Singapore associates it with Peranakan Chinese, this was not the case for any of these groups. Playing on the collective term Jawi Peranakan/Pekan, the term Town Malays is here used to denote the diverse Malayo-Nusantara and other Muslim Peranakan groups living in urban and suburban Singapore who constitute part of the Malay community here. This talk surveys the forgotten clubs and associations they formed, and continues from a previous session that extended the histories of Singapore Malays beyond Kampong Gelam to consider historical connections across ethnicities and place histories connecting different neighbourhoods in colonial Singapore. The presentation retraces changes in the plural and fluid identity formations through urban civic life and comes from a larger research project on the social histories of the Malays, other Nusantara groups, and the Arab and Indian Jawi Peranakan/Pekan in colonial Singapore.

Introduction by: Zaki Razak
Interactive storytelling by: Jumaini Ariff (A children's book author & Malay Language Ambassador)

Discussion moderated by: Zaki Razak

Synopsis
This lecture aims to compile, highlight and perform an interactive storytelling based on significant mention of Telok Blangah in Malay legends; to pay emphasis on the shore which associates itself to significant historical personalities such as Sang Nila Utama, Hang Nadim and Radin Mas. Many know of the outline of respective legends but few would enquire why the events took place at Telok Blangah. This is to be followed by critical and additional notes and commentaries by an academic who could share both modern and classical perspectives from a literary educational and national context.
