History: S. Kanwarajit Singh took to writing in 1996, when he found some discrepancies in an article published in the Punjabi Tribune written by one Prof. Dosanjh from Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana. The article was “Punjab Da Ajoka Sankat Brahmanwadi Sikhan Di Den”. In response to this article S. Kanwarajit Singh started active research on sikh history and authored several tracts to bring out the truth, which was greatly admired by the sikh sangat. In year 2000, on the occasion of “300 Salla, Khalsa Saajna Diwas”, RSS, a right wing hindu group distributed literature containing objectionable content, that deeply hurt sikh sentiments. S. Kanwarajit Singh then authored “RSS Jhuth Da Pulanda” and “Rashtriya Sikh Sangat Jhuth Da Pulanda” and distributed 10,000 copies of each publication which was heartily welcomed by the sikh organisations. With the blessings of Almighty God and lot of support from Sikh sangat S. Kanwarajit Singh has written many books and tracts. Books and tracts in PDF format are available in Books & Tracts sections of the website.
