Paramountcy, Patriotism, and the Panth

Author Professor J.S. Grewal and Professor Indu Banga

  • This book is based on the deconstruction of a vast range of untapped sources in the UK and India, and provides valuable fresh insights into the working of British colonialism.
  • Maharaja Ripudaman Singh was the only prince who consistently resisted the colonial state.
  • His sources of inspiration were Indian Nationalism and the Sikh resurgence.
  • He introduced the Anand Marriage Bill, supported the restoration of the wall of Gurdwara Rakabganj, and was closely associated with the movement for Gurdwara reform. The famous Jaito Morcha of the Akalis was started for his restoration.
