Filming plight of destitute Sikhs

A filmmaker has returned from Afghanistan after filming a documentary to highlight the country's segregated Sikh society.
Bobby Singh, of Syston, flew to Kabul in January to shoot a documentary about the Gudwara Har Rai Sahib – a Sikh temple which has become home to about 1,000 displaced people.
The historic place of worship is riddled with thousands of bullet holes from US and Taliban fighters.
Writer Bobby, 43, spent a week with a film crew from Birmingham television channel Sikh TV.
