Xenophobic Marxism

Xenophobic Marxism

(p.168) 12. Xenophobic Marxism
A History of the Sikhs

Khushwant Singh

Oxford University Press

This chapter studies xenophobic Marxism of the Indians by the Americans and the Canadians. It chronicles the Sikh emigration to the United States and Canada. The slowly increasing numbers of Sikhs helped fuel the Canadians’ and Americans’ prejudice against the immigrants. This chapter examines the ways the Indian immigration was kept out of Canada and United States. One section focuses on the Ghadr Party, which was founded in San Francisco, while another section examines the arrival of the Japanese passenger ship, the Komagata Maru, near Vancouver. The chapter turns its attention to the different activities of the Ghadr Party, namely the ‘revolution’ of the Punjab, rising at Singapore, and the German participation, the latter creating factions within the Ghadr Party.

Keywords:   xenophobic Marxism, Sikh emigration, prejudice against the immigrants, Ghadr Party, Komagata Maru, German participation, Punjab revolution, rising at Singapore
