Gurdwara Shri Fatehgarh Sahib Shaheedi Jor Mela

Gurdwara  Shri Fatehgarh Sahib Sirhind


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??
