In Canada, there have been murders and riots within
the Sikh community. I have little knowledge of the
religious concerns but this is usually described as
between Sikh militants or traditonalists and
moderates. There was a bloody riot in Vancouver
between two factions over the control of a Sikh
temple. Sikh journalists in Canada have been murdered
for writing about the issues.
