The Notre Dame professor said in a May 2003 telephone interview that while Sikhs on lists dating from the militancy period are still at risk, it is unlikely that Punjab police have labeled many Sikhs as history sheeters since then based on suspected militant links.
Sikhs who move from Punjab to other parts of India normally are not viewed with heightened suspicion or harassed by local police simply because of their religion or where they come from, according to a lawyer who practices before the High Court in the western state of Gujarat.
At the same time, local police throughout the country often harbor suspicion of anyone coming from another part of India, though this alone is generally not enough to lead to mistreatment, the lawyer said in a telephone interview with the RIC (Lawyer 22 Apr 2003).
