Description

Sikhism emerged against the backdrop of rejecting Brahmanical rituals and practices and as a distinct movement to Hinduism and Islam. Its evolution and consolidation in the form of Panth by the time of Guru Gobind Singh was unique. During periods of crises and challenges, the community stood to maintain its discrete identity.

Gradually with passage of time, during the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Sikhs began to adopt Brahmanical rituals and practices contrary to the essence of Sikhism. First time, it was noticed by Baba Dayal who began to preach against this degradation. In this sense, it became the ‘First Sikh Reform Movement’. After Partition the movement continued to preserve its distinct identity vis-à-vis Nirankaris founded by Baba Avatar Singh in the twentieth century.
