Description

Sikhism was fortunate to be born at a time when the Semitic and Vedic-Buddhist faiths were coming face to face with one another, and creating tensions and confrontations. Blessed was the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak, who travelled far and wide to convince the people of all faiths and creeds that his message is for all the people of the world.

It was on this rock foundation that the Sikh Gurus in their scriptures and spiritual teachings gave a path of human brother hood, but at the same time established the distinct identity of their faith in social, cultural, ethical and religious spheres.

In spite of this message of Universal Brotherhood of Man, the identity of Sikhism is repeatedly attacked by the adversaries of Sikhism like the Minas, Dhirmahas, Masands, Ram Raiyas, Niranjaniyas, Mahants, Nirankari, Radhasoami and Namdhari Gurus. Even in the foreign lands the Sikhs had to launch movements to preserve the sanctity of their Articles of Faith: the Turban and the Sword, but due to active support of the respective governments and judiciary in U K, USA, Canada and Australia the Sikhs not only retained their honour, dignity and identity, but also attained respectable positions in the governments of their adopted countries.

This book was originally written in 1976 and published in 1977 in Great Britain in support of the turban case of the Sikhs. Subsequently the book was revised in 1981 by the late author, and after his death the book was further revised, edited and enlarged by his son Prof. Anurag Singh. Based exclusively on authoritative and primary sources to highlight the distinct identity of Sikhism, the book for the first time deals with the history and exposition of Sikh Baptism, Sikh symbols: Kakars, Moral Code of the Sikhs: Rehitnamas, Fundamental Beliefs of Sikhism, Sikh Missionary groups: Sampardayas, Adversaries of Sikhism, for the English readers.
