Sikhism and Nirankari Movements

Description Very few movements remain consistently committed to their ideologies and their basic tenets while a large number among these degenerate in individual cults and sectarian sects. The Nirankari movement which began as a religious renaissance movement in Sikh religion in the mid nineteenth century, has degenerated into personality cult sect cutting at the very roots of its mother tree - the Sikh religion. Its followers carried out murderous attack against Sikhs in 1978. This booklet contains the history of Nirankari Movement from its inception to its present status and reports of enquiry committee about the Nirankari Sikh riots. Its description shows the downslide of a very great religious and cultural movement from the zenith of its glory to the nadir of its degeneration[edit]
