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.

Youngest Sikh Martyr Sahibzaade and Mata Gujri Ji’s Teachings: 24-Dec-2017

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!

As the year approaches the end, on December 26 every year, the global world Sikh community commemorate the martyrdom of three of their most loved figures of the Guru household. On this darkest of days, their youngest hero and bravest comrade of Sikhism, Sahibzada Fateh Singh (6 years, 1699-1705, probably the youngest recorded martyr in history who knowingly and consciously laid down his life at the very tender age of 6 years) who was the youngest of Guru Gobind Singh’s four sons, Sahibzada Zorawar Singh (1696-1705), his elder brother (8years) and Mata Gujari Kaur ji, his grandmother sacrificed their lives for their faith and the right to remain Sikhs.

At such a tender age, they were bricked alive but did not bow before the tyranny and cruelty of the Mughal government and did not accepted to change their religion.

The renowned Hindi poet, Maithli Saran Gupta in his well known book Bharat Bharati said: “Whatever their present position, the future of the community whose sons can thus lay down their lives for their faith, is bound to be glorious.
