The dhadis havea exercised considerable influence amonst rural Sikhs, relating martial traditions concerning Guru Hargobind, Guru Gobind Singh, and other Sikh heroes. This book shows how the dhadi tradition has influenced notions of martyrdom and violence in the Sikh community, drawing on a wide range of sources on the rhetorical culture in Punjab. The author argues religion is an evolving area of social interaction, thus giving rise to narrative linkages between religious and political discourse.
