From the Foreword :

The egalitarian ideology of progressive social revolution of cosmic nature envisaged by Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism became phenomenally manifest in the creation of the Khalsa by Guru Gobind Singh, the Tenth and last Guru of the Sikhs. The publication of the book Guru Gobind Singh and creation of Khalsa on the occasion of the Tercentenary Celebrations of the Khalsa will be a benefiting tribute to the great Guru as an act of appreciation of his marvelous contributions to bind various communities in abiding love, harmony, integration and commitment to serve humanity and defend Dharma (righteousness) through the advocacy of his message of unity of God and brotherhood of man. The Guru spelt out the empirical role of the holy man in society as a divinely sanctioned moral responsibility and established the Khalsa commonwealth of saint soldiers (sant sipahi) to protest justice, virtues, human rights, freedom, liberty and the oppressed. The Khalsa had to present a model role to fight against all agencies of socio-political exploitation and to establish rule of law and social dispensation.
