The University of Wolverhampton has partnered with the Pothohar Association UK on a joint project, ‘Rekindling Pothohar’, that documents the community's migration to the United Kingdom from India and other countries.

“The exhibition charts the 100 years of contributions of the Pothohari community to the United Kingdom from 1915 onwards,” Opinderjit Kaur Takhar, director of the Centre for Sikh and Panjabi Studies at the University, said. “This migrant community originated from the Pothohar region of West Punjab which was previously part of India and became part of the newly created Pakistan in 1947.”
