Jathedar Ganda Singh was later hanged by the British in 1848 after he and other officials of the Golden Temple clashed with British officers when they walked inside the Harmindir Sahib with their shoes on. During the clash a Government official was killed. Under the Governor of the Punjab, Lawrence, the protesting Sikhs, including Jathedar Ganda Singh, were arrested and hanged.

Is this another part of our ithihaas that's been wiped clean? 

Anyone know more about this?

Footnotes

  • This unusual document was issued by the Sri Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple), and is stamped with the official seal of the Harmandir Sahib, reading Degh-o-tegh-o-Fateh, Nusrat Beh-de-rang Yaft-az Nanak-Guru Gobind Singh.

    The text states it was issued at the command of Jathedar Ganda Singh, and written by the Ardasiya (prayer leader at the time) Bhai Kirpal Singh, appealing to the Sikh community to send donations to Sri Harmandir Sahib, perhaps during the initial period of British administration after the defeat of the First Anglo-Sikh War, in the reign of Maharajah Duleep Singh. Other persons named in the firman include Assistant Jathedar Dharam Singh, Head Priest Charat Singh, and service master Karam Singh.

    Jathedar Ganda Singh was later hanged by the British in 1848 after he and other officials of the Golden Temple clashed with British officers when they walked inside the Harmindir Sahib with their shoes on. During the clash a Government official was killed. Under the Governor of the Punjab, Lawrence, the protesting Sikhs, including Jathedar Ganda Singh, were arrested and hanged.

Here's more khoj of the language veer.

I suspected it was from Patna Sahib from the ਸ੍ਰੀ ਭੰਗੂੜਾ ਜੀ reference.

This hukamnama mentions that there was a sukhayee Singh at the Takht Sahib who supervised the making of shaheedi degh.

    • The thing is that Hindus will only give it the large when in a significant majority and as soon as the numbers turn against them they pretty much give up. The only exception I've seen to this is the Tamil Hindus of Sri Lanka. They also have appalling unity, did the Punjabi, Tamil, Nepali Hindus come to help the Gujaratis? Nope. Yet you had Arabs and Somalians helping the Indian muslims and Pakistanis.  Sikhs historically have always been a minority in India and even greater Punjab so we are used to fighting when the numbers are against us. Just look at how we retaliated against the muslims of UP who heavily outnumber us when they tried to take our land. Even in Hyderabad Sikhs have fought against Muslims who make up a huge amount of the city.   
    • The recommended schedule for Sikhs is to go sleep saying God's name and wake up doing the same:   ਸਉਦੇ ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਉਚਰਹਿ ਉਠਦੇ ਭੀ ਵਾਹੁ ਕਰੇਨਿ ॥ saudē vāh vāh ucharah uthadē bhī vāh karēn . Whilst going to sleep they utter Lord's glories and praises and when awake they eulogise Him as well. ਨਾਨਕ ਤੇ ਮੁਖ ਉਜਲੇ ਜਿ ਨਿਤ ਉਠਿ ਸੰਮਾਲੇਨਿ ॥੧॥ nānak tē mukh ujalē j nit uth sanmālēn .1. Nanak bright are the faces of those who daily arise early and remember God. p312   You have to sleep the same number of hours anyway. So why not go to sleep early and wake up early? Afterwards, you'll still have the same number of hours to study--there are only 24 hours in a day. If you say it's the same if you do Amrit Vela first and then go to sleep, it's not: If you do it your way, after you wake up, you won't be worshipping, as commanded above. Instead, you'll head to school or whatever. We're supposed to worship after waking: ਗੁਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਜੋ ਸਿਖੁ ਅਖਾਏ ਸੁ ਭਲਕੇ ਉਠਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥ gur satigur kā jō sikh akhāē s bhalakē uth har nām dhiāvai . He, who calls himself a Sikh of the Great True Guru, should rise early and meditate on God's Name. p305 Meditate after you rise, Gurbani says.
