The stories about the historical little town of Fatehgarh Sahib are super fascinating, to say the least. The two posts I wrote about about this place last month got great response from everyone – the first one Fatehgarh Sahib – Celebrating Valour and Sacrifice (Part 1) was about the legendary Diwan Todar Mal and his place in Sikh history, the second post – Celebrating Valour and Sacrifice (Part 2) was about the grand Gurudwara Fatehgarh Sahib, which holds in its bosom the holy room where the young saahibzaadas of Guru Gobind Singh were bricked alive.
But before meeting this gruesome fate, the young sahibzaadas Baba Zorawar Singh ji (aged 9 years) and Baba Fateh Singh ji (aged 7 years) and their grandmother Mata Gujri had to endure bone-chilling cruelties at the hands of Wazir Khan, the then Governor or Fauzdar of Sirhind.
