Title The Sikhs Demand Their Homeland
Description The crucible of India's freedom struggle came to a boil in 1946, when transfer of power was actively contemplated by the ruling British government. But when the leading political party, the Indian National Congress diluted its demand for a united India post independence and reluctantly agreed to the Muslim demand for a separate state of Pakistan for The Muslims, The Sikhs, the third largest minority and an equal contender for power, felt threatened and insecure. Despite all the constitutional guarantees and safeguard promised both by the Hindu dominated congress and the Muslim league, the Sikhs felt their future threatened under the majority rule. The Sikhs felt that they also deserved to have a separate homeland of their own because of their distinct religion, ideology, culture and political aspirations. The present book builds a strong case for the creation of separate homeland for the Sikhs for the same reasons for which the Muslims were being given a separate homeland. The author's arguments are based on critical analysis of India's as well as Sikh history. The author's expression is somewhat difficult for an ordinary reader to graph its thesis
