Description

Dr Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia is nationally and internationally recognized as a leading Sikh scholar and Punjabi writer, with over three dozen books, in Punjabi and English. He has been recognized in the history of Punjabi literature as a pioneer of a literary era known as the modernist phase.

His seminal book The Sovereignty of the Sikh Doctrine is considered an authoritative text on Sikh philosophy. Byword-a prestigious journal in English-commented that the role of Dr Ahluwalia in interpreting Sikhism in modern idiom and perspective is comparable to that of Dr S Radhakrishnan in respect of Hinduism,

Angela Dietrich of University of Heidelberg. West Germany hailed this book as the most significant contribution to date to the sociology of Sikhism, a field of academic inquiry which has so far been sorely neglected. Dr Gopal Singh wrote, It needed a man of very high scholarship, deep commitment to the basics of the Sikh faith and to history who could make out a case for locating the genesis of the Sikh identity. In my opinion, Dr Aluwalia has redeemed Sikh scholarship which is now reduced to delineating only the obvious, the customary, the usual, and hence the least controversial. Dr Jasbir Singh Aluwalia is thus both a pioneer and a challenger in this field.
