A Short History Of Sikhs

Description This is a short reader's guide to the History of Sikhs from its origin up to British annexation of Punjab or mid nineteenth century. It covers the evolution of Sikhism during the Guru Period, creation of the Khalsa, Maharaja Ranjit Singh's empire and its annexation after his demise. The account's brief, informative but like sketchy. Since it is written by a serving British officer during colonial rule in India, his outlook is colonial and not balanced. Nevertheless, it gives a bare online of the Sikh history of the major portion of Sikh history[edit]
