Punjab Homeland of the Sikhs

Description The author of this book, an advocate of the Punjab High Court at Lahore in 1945, states the poignant situation for the Sikhs which has been created by the persistent demand for a separate state for Muslims in the Northwest of India by the Muslim League before India's independence. This demand, if accepted, was likely to have serious repercussions for the Sikhs and the homeland of Punjab. As a result, a memorandum signed by the prominent Sikh leaders as well as heads of leading Sikh organizations and compiled by the author was presented to the Sapru Conciliation Committee constituted to assess the news of major communities. The predominant Sikh view was that the Sikhs were opposed to the partition of the partition of the country and creation of a separate country for the Muslims. The Sikhs stood for an individual secular India where the rights of all the religious minorities were safeguarded. They were opposed to the partition of Punjab territory which has been the homeland of the Sikhs since the birth of Sikh religion. The contents of the book reflect the dilemma of the Sikhs being sandwiched between the two major communities opposed to each other[edit]
