The Nirankari Sikhs

Description The history of the Nirankari Sikhs written by a Christian missionary brings out the origin, evolution, contribution, disintegration and present status of Nirankari mission. While it acknowledges the contribution of this movement to the social reforms in Sikhism during the tenure of its first founder and immediate four successors, it regrets its declining theological position in the post-partition period. The author's assessment is fairly balanced. His opinion that the Nirankaris have been reduced to a cult rather than being a movement and mission is also valid. The whole account based on different Christian missionaries' report is over chronological and comprehensive and factual.[edit]
