Some Document on the Demand For Sikh Homeland

Description The dream of a Sikh homeland has been in built in the Sikh psyche since the creation of the Khalsa by Guru Gobind on the historical Baisakhi day of 1699. This dream came to be realised for a short span of half a century during the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. But it got lost after the Maharaja's death. Since then, it again has been the keep a aspiration of the Sikhs to have a territorial region for the flowering of their religion and culture. This demand picked up momentum after the reorganization of Punjab state in 1966. This reorganization led to more bitterness among the Sikhs. This sense of bitterness and a renewed demand for an autonomous state within the dominion of India is the main subject matter of these lecturers, speeches and resolutions written by one of the most prominent Sikh intellectuals. It puts forth arguments and facts based on the past history of the Sikhs, the pledges and promises made to the Sikhs by the Indian national leaders and the injustice done to the Sikh at the time of reorganization of Punjab 1966. It represents the collective fetching of alienation of the Sikhs and their aspirations[edit]
