The Sikhs Demand Thier Homeland

Description Transfer of political power from one sovereign authority to another is rarely smooth and fair to all the citizens of a liberated country. So was it during the independence of India from the British colonial rule in 1947. While the two majority communities the Hindus and the Muslims got their cherished independence in the form of India and Pakistan, The Sikhs were not given a fair deal. The Author of this book makes a strong case and a fervent appeal for the creation of an independent sovereign state for the Sikhs at par with the Hindus and the Muslims. He bases his demand for an independent Sikh state on the basis of distinct religion and identity of the Sikhs as well as distinct religion and identity of the Sikhs as well as their massive contribution in terms of Sikh sacrifices made for India's independence . The book reflects the aspirations of the Sikhs in the wake of impending India's independence and partition. It also reflects the legitimate right of the Sikhs for a sovereign state. He calls the denial of this demand as a new era of slavery for the Sikhs[edit]
