Early European Accounts Of The Sikhs

Description History of the Sikhs written by European writers is one of the primary sources of Sikh history. This volume contains some snippets about Sikh history while Punjab was under the Misl rule before Maharaja Ranjit Singh's times. The account is based on Persian account of the Sikhs by two well-informed residents of Lahore during the early part of eighteenth century. The edited and selected articles by the British writers give a very elementary and sketchy description about the origin of the Sikhs, their Gurus and their racial characteristics. Still its contents highlight the distinct identity of Sikh religion and the Sikhs and the political aspirations of the Sikhs. These articles are neither systematic nor chronological and suffer from many misconceptions and misinformation about the Sikhs among the British rulers of rest of India.[edit]
