Are Sikhs A Nation?

Description Are Sikhs a nation? The question in this book has been answered by the author in a very sensible manner. He believes that in view of the history of the Sikhs, their character and aspirations, the Govt. of India should not be unduly bothered by the Sikh claim of being a nation. Although the Sikhs consider themselves to be nation by virtue of their distinct religion, culture, customs and identity, they do not want to secede from India and are willing to abide by the constitution of India. Their only demand is that they should be acknowledged as Sikhs and not as Hindus. The author's thesis is supported by the nationalistic ideology of the main Sikh political party the Shromni Akali Dal. The Sikhs are nation within the Indian Nation[edit]
