The present work is born out of the eagerness of the British colonizers to know whether the Sikh political power was legitimate. It was not an academic question with them. The use of the then popular theory of sovereignty as an aid to the expansion of the British East India Company controlled territory was the obvious motive. Sensing that danger, Rattan Singh took upon himself the task of upholding the legitimacy of Sikh political power. He begins by reiterating the basic Sikh theory of polity. It must be considered authentic because it is in accord with the religious text. Coming from Bhangu, who himself belonged to the ruling aristocracy; it perhaps also represents the thought of that section on the subject.
