Sikh Revivalist Movements

Surjit Kaur Jolly (Author)
Synopsis This is the first exhaustive and systematic study of Nirankari and Namdhari movements, during 19th century. The author’s analysis is basically relevant to the forces, which made Sikh Revivalist movements to emerge in order to step further decay and degeneration of the Sikh religion. These movements primarily relied on Adi Grunth to give new directions to the society with new rays of hopes and to discard dogmas and rituals which had penetrated into the society. These were reformist, puritan and revolutionary movements aimed to regenerating social, religious and political awakening. The book examines the divergent perceptions and critically evaluates the responses and reactions of the different classes of society towards these movements. It brings into light many interesting and rare documents which were hitherto lying unearthed. This would be at useful reference book for the students and research scholars working on Sikhism and the history of Punjab, besides those who are interested in social, religious and political events in Punjab during that period.
