Sura So Pehchaniye, Jo Ladeh Din Ke Het, Purja Purja Kat Mare, Kabahu Na Shadai Khet”
“He alone is known as a spiritual hero, who fights in defense of Dharma, He may be cut apart, piece by piece, but he never leaves the field of battle” The Martyrdom of the four sahibzaade is an important part of Sikh history and the occasion of their martyrdom is remembered and commemorated both with great vigor and very acute sadness, by staff and students of Bhartiya Vidya Mandir, Dugri.
On these darkest days, in 17th century, the youngest heroes and bravest comrades of Sikhism, sacrificed their lives for humanity. Mrs. Sarabjeet Kaur expressed her gratitude and said "The four beloved sons of Guru Gobind Singh, showed utmost valour and stood up against the tyranny of Mughal Empire. Guru Gobind Singh Ji is the 10th Guru Sikhs worship. Guru Gobind Singh Ji had four sons, the "Chaar Sahibzade". Ajit Singh Ji (18 years old), Jujhar Singh Ji (14 years old), Zorawar Singh Ji (9 years old) and Fateh Singh Ji (7 years old). The two elder son’s of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Sahibzaada Ajit Singh and Sahibzaada Jujhar Singh attained martyrdom at the Battle Of Chamkaur. This great battle is considered to be one of the greatest last stands in history, where 40 brave Sikh Warriors fought with an army of over ten lakhs.
Baba Zorawar Singh Ji and Baba Fateh Singh Ji, the two youngest of the Chaar Sahibzade were told by Wazir Khan, the Nawab of Sirhind to be bricked alive because they refused to become muslims. This event took place on 26th December 1705. Our students Manpreet Kaur and Ravinder Kaur presented a shabad.
Sehajpreet Kaur and Gurvind Singh recited beautiful poems and spread their thoughts that
"To sacrifice one’s life to uphold dharma has been an integral part of the Sikh faith. A shaheed or martyr, by his supreme sacrifice for the right cause, bears testimony to its truth and to his own commitment to it. To ensure justice and to see that no one is oppressed is enjoined as a duty of every Sikh. As says the Guru, “Listen O mind, that person who fears nothing nor gives anyone cause to fear, has alone obtained true knowledge.”
