Greatest Sikh warriors/Figures?

Recommended Posts

Apart from the Gurus, who were the greatest warriors and most influential Sikhs?

I know there is Banda Singh Bahadar but what about other Sikhs in the history who did the most for the panth?

some history ?

He was the last governor of the sikh empire, governor of Multan, he led a rebellion against the British and killed some of their leaders, but he was captured and sent to prison in Calcutta.

It's sad that he has been forgotten 

That's him in jail, it's a painting done by the british
