THE SUPREME MARTYRDOM – CHHOTE SAHIBZADE-
On this date in 1705, Baba Fateh Singh ji was cruelly and mercilessly martyred at Sirhind along with his elder brother, Zorawar Singh. He is probably the youngest recorded martyr in history who knowingly and consciously laid down his life at the very tender age of 6 years - laid down his life so that the others live in dignity.

Sahibzada Fateh Singh and his older brother, Sahibzada Zorawar Singh are among the most hallowed martyrs in Sikhism. As soon as the two Sahibzadas attained martyrdom, Mata Gujri ji, who was sitting in meditation in the tower, breathed her last. The messenger who came with the news of the martyrdom of the Sahibzade found that Mata-Ji had already attained salvation.

The same evening Dewan Todar Mal, a jeweller reached Nawab Wazir Khan's court for permission to cremate the dead bodies of the two Sahibzadas and Mata Gujri ji. So as to highlight the extreme cruelty of the administration, the Nawab agreed on condition that the dewan pay for the required piece of land by spreading as many Gold coins as would cover the entire spot.

The dewan accepted the terms and brought bagfuls of gold coins to satisfy the condition set by the Mughal administration. He marked the site and spread coins on entire piece of land he selected for cremation.

The two martyred young sons of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji were cremated with full honours along with their grand-mother Mata Gujri ji. A wave of anguish gripped the country as the news of the martyrdom of the Sahibzadas spread.

MILLIONS MILLIONS SALUTATIONS TO THEIR MARTYRDOM.

THE SUPREME MARTYRDOM – CHHOTE SAHIBZADE-
There is no parallel to the martyrdom of such young boys in the annals of human history. Sahibzada Fateh Singh was less than six years old (born 1699) and Sahibzada Zorawar Singh was just over eight (born in 1696). They laid down their lives in December 1705.
At such a tender age, they were bricked alive but did not bow before the tyranny and cruelty of the Mughal rulers.

This week is the Martyrdom Week in which all the 4 sons of Guru Gobind Singh Ji attained martyrdom - this was a fight against tyranny, fight for independence and for the right of a human being to live with dignity, to follow the religion of one's own choice.
Kavi Allah Yaar Khan Jogi has written in poetic form Shaheedaane-Vafaa and Gaanj-e-Shaheedaan. He has penned down the days of the Martyrdom - covering Sirsa River, Battle of Chamkaur Sahib and bricking of Chotte Sahibzade at Sirhind.
Sharing a few selected lines..........
About Guru Gobind Singh Ji sending his 2 elder sons to the battle field:
Lo jao, Sidharo! Tume Kartar ko sounpa,
Mar jao ya maaro, tume Kartar ko sounpa
*
Beta ho tum hi, panth k bede k khvvya,
Sir bhet karo ta k, dharam ki chale nayya
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Emotions of Sahibzada Jujhar Singh ji on seeing his elder brother Sahibzada Ajit Singh ji attain martyrdom)
Is vakht kahaa nanhe se masoom pisar (son) ne,
Rukhsat hamey dilvaao pita, jaaenge marne.
Bhai se bichharh kar jeena nahi aata,
Sona nahi, khana nahi, peena nahi bhaata.

Guruji 's reply:
'Marne ke liye', kahne lagey, 'jaaiye jumm jumm,
Rootho na khuda raa! Nahi rokenge kabhi ham.
Hum ne tha kahaa baap ko, Jaan deeje dharam par,
Lo kehte hai ab aap ko, Jaan deeje dharam par.
Marne se kisi yaar ko humne nahi roka,
Farzande (son) vafadaar ko humne nahi roka.
Tum ko bhi isi raah mey kurbaan karenge,
Sadd shukar hai hum bhi kabhi khanjar se marenge.
Pehle pita kataya, ab bete kataaunga,
Nanak ka baag, khoone jigar se khillaunga.
Main tera hoon, bacche bhi mere, tere hai maula,
Thhe tere hi, hai tere, rahengey tere daata.
Jis haal mein rakhey tu, vohi haal hai achha,
Juzh (without) shukar kei, aaney ka zabaan par nahi shikva.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thhe chaar, ho ab do hi, sehar yeh bhi na hongey,
Hum sabar karengey jo agar yeh bhi na hongey.
Tribute to Guruji:
Aada (enemies) ney kabhi tujh ko sambhalne na diya thaa,
Aaram se pehluu ko badalney na diya thaa.
Gulshan ko tere falney-fulney da diya thaa,
Kis sabar se har ek karhi tooney uthaai,
Kis shukar se har chot kaleje pe hai khaai.
Vaalad (father) ko kataya, kabhi aulaad katai,
Ki fikar mey, faakar mey, hazaron se larhaai.
Kartar ki saugandh hai, Nanak ki kasam hai,
Jitni bhi ho taarif Gobind ki, voh kam hai.
Harchand (although) mere haath mein, pur zor kalam hai,
Satgur kei likhoon vasf (praises), kahaan taabe-rakam (worth) hai.
