A documentary film about a “thapodhis” (spiritual leader) from India is set to debut in the United States on Thursday, following the death of a prominent figure in the American Sikh community, including his son.
The film, which is being made by the Thapodhyas Ashram, a group of Sikh temples in Los Angeles, is titled Thapods Indian: The Truth about the Thaps.
It is directed by the filmmaker D.J. Singh and will air in the U.S. on Thursday.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Singh said he wanted to “tell the truth” about the “thaps” and to “expose the lies that were being told about the thaps.”
The film will air on National Public Radio and other broadcast networks, including CNN, in partnership with the Sikh Coalition, the Sikh American Civil Rights Network, and the American Indian Movement.
The documentary will be released by Sundance Institute, the documentary arm of Sundance Media.
The Thapdhan Ashrams are a group that is a group in Los Angelos called the Thaks, which means “one who lives by his word.”
Singh said the film is an “exposing” of “the lies” being told in the US about the people of India.
The group was founded in the 1950s, and its membership now stands at some 50,000.
The organization claims to be a “non-profit organization, but it has a strong political agenda.”
Singh told the Post that he was inspired by a documentary about a thapdhis named Sangeet Kaur.
In the documentary, the filmmaker reveals that a “Thap” (an Indian-American Sikh) in the Los Angeles area, Sangeeta Kaur, died in 2015.
Kaur was a spiritual leader of a community in the city of Long Beach, California, and was a longtime supporter of former President Donald Trump, who was then running for office.
Singh said that his inspiration for the film came from a recent conversation with a friend who had visited the “Thaps” temple.
Singh shared his conversation with the Post: “She said that when she first came to the Thats, she thought, ‘I don’t know what this temple is, but this guy is a good man.
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to find him in his lifetime.'”
The film follows Singh’s friendship with the “Punjabi” community of the “pandas,” who he says are a “superior people” in the Indian-majority region of Los Angeles.
Singh told NPR that “the Punjabis are the most successful people in the world.”
He said the “people of Punjabi culture” in his home state of California “are the people most willing to listen to you and listen to what you have to say.”
Singh has said in the past that the Punjatis have a “secret” that they don’t want people to know about.
The story of how Singh met Sangeeet Kachar is one of the few in India that has not been covered widely by mainstream media.
According to the Indian media, Singh was invited to visit her temple in the early 1990s.
According on his website, the Thapa is “a spiritual leader, teacher, and mentor of the Punjab community” and has served as a spiritual advisor to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the prime minister of Pakistan.
A spokesperson for the ThAPD told the Washington Times that Singh “never spoke to Sangeette Kachara, and he has never met her.”
Singh declined to say what he believed to be her final wishes about the temple or about her death.
Singh also said that the Thappans “do not want to be called Thapds, but they prefer to be known as Thapas.”
He added that he wanted the “truth about the Hindus to be revealed to the world so that the true history of India and Muslims can be known.”
Singh, who is the founder of the Hindu Jagran Manch, the largest Indian Sikh organization, said he hopes the film will be viewed as a “call to arms for all Sikhs and Muslims to speak out against the racist and anti-India agenda that we have been denied by our own leaders.”
Singh’s involvement in the film comes on the heels of other high-profile incidents of violence against Muslims in the country.
In September, two Sikh women were brutally attacked by three men outside a mosque in the southwestern city of Lahore.
The men allegedly shouted anti-Islamic slurs and threatened to kill them if they reported the incident.
The attackers were later arrested.
A similar attack happened a month earlier, when a Pakistani student was brutally beaten and stabbed by two men who shouted anti of Islam slurs.
In December, an Indian man was stabbed and killed in a bar in the
