Out of 'Islam or death', Guru Tegh Bahadur chose death, all atrocities right but did not give up 'religion'

New Delhi: The 400th Prakash Parv of Guru Tegh Bahadur, popularly known as 'Hind Ki Chadar', is being celebrated in India today. Due to this Prakash Parv, today PM Narendra Modi is going to address the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort. Let us tell you that Guru Tegh Bahadur was the ninth Guru of the Sikhs and he had sacrificed his life for people who were not even from his community. In the year 1675, at Chandni Chowk in Delhi, Mughal ruler Aurangzeb assassinated the ninth cleric of the Sikhs, Tegh Bahadur. Noel King of the University of California, who did many research on Guru Tegh Bahadur, mentions this incident as saying that 'the murder of Guru Tegh Bahadur was the first martyrdom in the world to protect human rights'.

Let us tell you that the rule of Aurangzeb has been a very cruel rule in Indian history. Many stories of Aurangzeb's cruelty are found in the history books. Aurangzeb also wanted to make India an Islamic nation and for this he tortured Hindus in many ways. In such a situation, fed up with the tyranny of the Mughals, a team of 500 Kashmiri Pandits led by Pandit Kripa Ram reached Anandpur Sahib to seek help from Guru Tegh Bahadur. Guruji immediately agreed to help them. Guru ji asked him to convey the message to Aurangzeb that if Guru Tegh Bahadur accepts Islam, then all those people along with him will also become Muslim. The same was done after the Guru's orders.

After this Guru Tegh Bahadur challenged Aurangzeb that he would die, but would not accept Islam. Angered by this, the cruel ruler Aurangzeb arrested Guru Tegh Bahadur along with his supporters and subjected him to severe physical torture for five days. But Guru Tegh Bahadur still refused to accept Islam. Aurangzeb's cruelty can be gauged from the fact that his supporters were burnt alive in front of Guru Tegh Bahadur. Still he could not bow down to Guru Tegh Bahadur. On November 11, 1675, the Qazi read the fatwa at Chandni Chowk in Delhi and the executioner severed the head of Guru Sahib with a sword. But Guru Tegh Bahadur did not even let out a sigh from his mouth and laughingly sacrificed himself for the protection of Dharma. The people of India will remember the sacrifice of such a sage and dharma rakshak guru for ages and will continue to take inspiration from him.
