Interaction between institutional religions of a time is a natural phenomenon, and this phenomenon makes possible the growth of religious pluralism and co-existence in any multi-religious society. But, when unique identity of a living institutional religion is challenged by another institutional religion, awakening of interest towards one’s unique identity, too, is a spontaneous response.Sometimes such polemics prove to be a classic exposition of a religion. Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha’s important work Hum Hindu Nahin, was also an outcome of polemics prevailing in the religiously polarized and strife-torn society of the nineteenth century’s last decade.
