Mughals carrying the heads of Sikhs to market to collect their price


The persecution of the Sikhs continued after the death of the Great Bhunda Singh Bahadur. Emperor Farukh Siyad issued orders to hunt them down where ever they could be found. In 1726 the governership of Lahor was handed to Zakariya Khan, who adopted strong measures to root out the Sikhs. A reward of Rs10 were offered for supplying information to the whereabouts of Sikhs. Rs 20 for pointing out a Sikh and Rs 50 for bringing the head of a Sikh and Rs80 for bringing in a live Sikh.
