p. 1208. Sikhism and the third millenniumlocked

  • Eleanor Nesbitt

Abstract

How is Sikhism viewed today, both within and outside the religion? Terrorism these days is closely associated with religion in popular consciousness. The notion of ‘fundamentalism’ is especially emotive. Alongside a rise in fundamentalist feelings, a growing disregard for religion in the late 20th century and beyond has been observed. This apparent contradiction poses challenges to the world’s religions. ‘Sikhism and the third millennium’ examines the many issues facing contemporary Sikhs. These are of faith and the place of Sikhism, issues that will continue to need intellectual and spiritual examination in the future.
