Its founder, Guru Nanak, was born in Guru Nanak spread a simple message of "Ek Ong Kar": we are all one, created by the One Creator of all Creation. This was at a time when India was being torn apart by castes, sectarianism, religious factions, and fanaticism.

While writing articles for many weeklies and monthlies in Canada and India (including Spokesman, Chandigarh, The Sikh Review, Calcutta, Institute of Sikh Studies, Chandigarh etc.) he was mainly busy in compiling a conceptual reference book on Guru Granth . Through a case study of Sikhism, he launches an extended critique of religion as a cultural universal. At the same time, he presents a portrait of how certain aspects of Sikh tradition were reinvented as "religion" during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
