Parwinder Singh, one of the few Sikh sculptures who has been propagating the Sikh history through a museum created by him at Balongi in Mohali district, today established a mini museum near the central stage at the Singhu border.

“Our history is full of courage and martyrdom. I have come here with some statues to make youths aware about the Sikh heritage,” says Parwinder Singh.

Parwinder Singh, who is a a scooter mechanic by profession, said the statues of Bhai Mati Das, Baba Deep Singh, Bhai Sati Das and four Sahibzadas had been established in the mini museum, which was visited by hundreds of farmers today.

He said there were 70 statues at his museum at Balongi, but it was not possible to bring all of them here. “My aim is to establish a museum on the lines of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London. I have been trying to do my best from my limited source of income,” he added.
