Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib
Shaheedi Jor Mela is organised every year in December at Gurdwara
Fatehgarh Sahib, in the Fatehgarh Sahib district of Punjab to pay
homage to the martyrdom of Baba Zorawar Singh ji and Baba Fateh Singh ji, the youngest of the tenth guru of sikhs Guru Gobind Singh's four sons.
Both Sahibzada's defied all attempts of then Governor of Sirhind Wazir
Khan's offers of treasure and easy lives if they would only convert to
Islam. Holding steadfast in their will to die as Sikhs, they were first
entombed alive by being bricked into a wall, but mere bricks and mortar
could not hold the young Sahibzadas, for the wall collapsed and fell to
the ground. Then, on 26 December 1705, Baba Fateh Singh ji was cruelly
and mercilessly martyred at Sirhind along with his elder brother, Baba
Zorawar Singh. He is probably the youngest recorded martyr in history
who knowingly and consciously laid down his life at the very tender age
of 6 years.
"In putran ke sis per var diye sut char, char muye to kya hua jeevat kai hazar"
Are we really those sons of Guru Sahib for whom Guru Sahib sacrificed their 4 sons, father, mother and himself??
