History of Banda Bahadur Singh shows the real face of Mughals

History of Banda Bahadur Singh:

Banda Singh Bahadur was a warrior but before a warrior, he was a monk. The first name of Banda Singh Bahadur was Madho Das. He was born in the Rajouri region of Kashmir in 1670 AD. When Guru Gobind Singh Ji was defeated by the Mughals in the Battle of Chamkaur and his two, seven and nine-year-old infants were brutally murdered, then Govind Singh Ji Laxman Das means that Banda met Bahadur. Then Guruji had said to Banda Bahadur Singh that if Raje becomes a monk, then who will protect this country and religion. After meeting Guruji, Banda Bahadur understood that he is a warrior.

The knowledge of Guru Gobind Singh Ji and the life his sons sacrificed made him so impressed that he agreed to take up arms. Then in 1709 AD, his mother reached Punjab to protect her country and on her way, along with the Sikhs, killed thousands of Mughals who were harassing the public. It is said that Banda Bahadur was fighting alone in this war as if it was its last war. Banda Bahadur alone was fighting alone with 5 Mughal soldiers at once. Despite all this, where was Banda Singh Bahadur going to stay? He beheaded Wazir Khan, the Faujdar of Sirhind.

Later, they captured some districts of Uttar Pradesh. In Amritsar and Jalandhar also fought for the rights of the destitute. Even returned the farmers’ land to them. In the eastern part of Lahore and the whole Punjab under the rule of the Sikhs, the medium of dialogue between Delhi and Lahore, the capital of the Mughals, was completely abolished. Hearing this, the Mughal emperor Bahadur got upset.


They were subjected to inhuman torture

In February 1716, Banda Bahadur and 794 of his companions were imprisoned and taken to Delhi. They were subjected to inhuman torture. Every day 100 Sikhs were hanged. His son was killed in front of the prisoner. When his turn came, Banda Singh told the Muslim judge that- “This was his condition, because he failed to fulfill the wishes of his beloved Guru Gobind Singh.” He was tortured to death with red hot iron rods. Banda’s body was razed to the ground with hot tongs and then crushed by an elephant, at the behest of Mughal emperor Farrukhsiyar.

This incident took place on 16 June 1716 AD. King Farrukhsiyar asked Banda Bahadur to leave Sikhism to Islam even at the last moment. But Banda Bahadur accepted martyrdom but did not give up Guru Gobind’s religion.
