Equality – All One Before God
Pritpal Singh reflects on the value of equality in Sikh history, the shabad “Bhand Jammee-ai,” and Guru Nanak’s radical concept of equality.
“Guru Nanak was also a social revolutionary in the way that he addressed the rights of women. At that time women were treated like property, but Guru Nanak elaborated on his concept of equality by unequivocally declaring that women are equal to men.”
