Sikh Formations: Religion, Culture, Theory

The partition of India in 1947 was, and undoubtedly remains, the most turbulent episode in the recent history of the subcontinent.

At the close of the World War I in 1919, the Punjab was passing through a very critical period. The passage of the MontaguChelmsford Reforms, the Rowlatt Bills and Jallianwala Bagh tragedy created anarchy in the province.
