Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji and Dharma Raksha

Aurangzeb was the most fanatic among mughal rulers, his Islamic expansion madness resulted in the conversion of Hindus into Islam all across the India. His religious intolerance is the darkest chapter in Indian medieval history.

Not satisfied with mass demolition of temples and forceful mass conversion of Hindu, He decided thet if he could convert the revered Brahmin Pandits of Kashmir that millions of followers would then easily be converted.

He issues orders to Kashmiri Pandits, convert to Islam or die... Threatened with conversion or death, the Pandits panicked. They came in a delegation to Chakk Nanaki, Pargana Kahlur and requested Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji to help them.

Hearing the serious nature of the conversation, Guru Ji's nine year old son Gobind Rai Ji told his father what the problem was.

After hearing Pandits' trouble, Guru ji asked for the possible ways to deal with the problem. His son Gobind Rai responded "Who would be better than you to defend the poor Brahmins".

Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji decided to stand up for the right of freedom of worship and told the delegation to tell Aurangzeb that if he could convert Guru Tegh Bahadur they would gladly convert.

Aurangzeb got furious after this challenged and ordered to kill Guruji. Guru Tegh Bahadur was beheaded at Chandni Chowk in Delhi on 11 November 1675. There stands a Gurdwara named Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib today.

His sacrifice has been graded as the Supreme Sacrifice by many historians in their writings.
Guru Tegh Bahadur - Hind di Chaadar..

Today is the Martyrdom Day of Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Jee. Let's salute this great protector of Dharma and Bharatvash.
