Bhai Dyala Ji


Baba Banda Singh Bahadur

He was the first emperor of the Sikh world. His earlier name was Lakshman Das, and thereafter Madho Das Bairagi. The name Baba Banda Singh was finally given to him by Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, and was nominated as the leader of the Sikh community. He was entrusted with weapons and sent to Punjab, where he gave the death penalty to Vazeer Khan who had killed the yonger sons of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. At the end, the opponents became successful in capturing him. Hot pliers were used to remove flesh from his body. The liver of his son was taken and plunged into his mouth. In spite of all this, Baba ji did not change his mind: all this was the power of the holy nectar which had made him fearless. A Gurdwara has been established in Mehroli, Delhi where he was martyred.
