Struggle For Reform In Sikh Srines

Description Periodic reformation is the general rule in every religion to set right certain system distortions which creep in with the passage of time. Sikh religion is no exception to this rule. The Gurudwara Sikh Reforms and Constitution of SGPC was the greatest reform in Sikhism in 1920s. The Sikh had to launch a massive public mass movement to liberate its sacred shrines from the illegal occupation of self-styled Udassi Mahants and make unprecedented sacrifices. The author of this book, who was a leading lawyer and a public figure of Punjab in the 1920s, gives an eye-witness account of the various Akali Sikh movements and the final liberation of Sikh shrines and Sikh control of these shrines by a constitutionally elected body of the Sikhs. The narration is accurate precise, authentic and based on facts. It also gives an insight into the Sikh psyche and their religions commitment[edit]
