Pratigaami Shankian Ton Srijnaatmak Prashn Val
Title translates as- ‘From Enslaving Doubts, To the Creative Question’. The book deals with the range of doubts (or questions) on Sikh History or theology, raised by various sections of intellectuals in recent times. Like- Why do all the Sikh Gurus come from Khatri caste, but not from the oppressed caste? Author has dared to take such sensitive questions head-on and call them enslaving doubts. He finds them as distraction from the real question of the way for human sovereignty. The reasoning is given in four ways, and they form the four sections of the book: Ideological Aspect, Societal & Cultural Aspect, Historical Aspect, And Their Aspect.
‘And Their Aspect’ (Aur Unka Paksh) deals with the critical analysis of the writings of Prof Ronki Ram, Dr. Dharamveer, and touches upon other Dalit activists like Babu Mangu Ram Magowalia. Author has done detailed analysis on the political and ideological reasons for Dr B.R. Ambedkar initiating into Navyaan Buddhism.
There are very few books on Sikh religion in Hindi literature. Hence, its Hindi edition becomes more important. The book is one of the unique efforts of critical analysis on Dalit intellectualism through the touchstone of Gurbani, and hence open new avenues for Dalit activism.
