Sikhism in Norway
In Norway, Sikhism has approximately 3,000 adherents, mostly living in Oslo, which has two gurdwaras, the Sikh place of worship.
Sikhs first came to Norway in the early 1970s. In 1969, the first Sikh who arrived in and settled in Norway was Amarjit Singh Kamboj. Sikhs and other work-related immigrants from India to Norway founded The Indian Welfare Society of Norway (IWS) in 1971. The troubles in Punjab after Operation Blue Star and riots committed against Sikhs in India after the assassination of Indira Gandhi led to an increase in Sikh refugees moving to Norway and other countries. Drammen also has a sizeable population of Sikhs; the largest gurdwara in north Europe was built in Lier. MORE
