On February 4, 2005 the News-Record reported, "Jasbir Singh with his daughter Gulnaar Kaur, a ninth-grader at Greensboro Day School, are teaching students about the Sikh religion. Greensboro Day School officials produced a curriculum to accompany a new educational film called 'The Sikh Next Door.' Singh, a Greensboro Day parent who worked on the project, asked the school to participate, and school officials said yes... Sikhs from across the country decided to make the film because some Sikh students were bullied and harassed at school after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks because they were confused with Muslims."
