25Feb: Remembering Shahidi Saaka (Massacre) in Nankaana Sahib

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!

Sikh Gurdwara DC welcomes all of you. We will be remembering the massacre that happened in Nankaana Sahib. The Nankana massacre (or Saka Nankana) took place in Nankana Sahib at that time of British India, modern-day Pakistan. Sikhs were killed by the Mahant and Pathan mercenaries. The event forms an important part of Sikh history. In political significance, it comes next only to Jallianwala Bagh massacre of April 1919. The saga constitutes the core of the Gurdwara Reform Movement started by the Sikhs in early twentieth century.
