Martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev Sahib

Today the Sikh followers recall the Martyrdom of Guru Arjjan Dev Sahib, the first Sikh martyr, who was tortured and executed in 1606 in Lahore after refusing to abandon his faith disobeying the orders of Mughal Emperor Jahangir. Guru Arjan’s legacy was the first Sikh scripture, the Adi Granth that lives through this day and onwards and adopting and formalizing the Gurmukhi alphabet. His deeds include organising a charity system to support the needed in a more long term and sustainable way also to support soup kitchens, a system for resolving litigations and disputes and indeed a community organisers in the very sense of the word and for that worshipped to his day, as his sacrifice and martyrdom lives on to inspire present and future generations.
