Shaheed Bhai Dyala Ji Bhai Dyala Ji was brought in the open space in front of the Kotwali. He was then asked by the Chief Qazi either to embrace Islam or to face death. He replied, "Sikhism is a true religion; it believes in one God and brotherhood of mankind. Sikhism does not believe in converting others by force. My Guru has taught me not to fear death; cowards die a thousand times, but the brave ones, who know the immortality of the soul, never die; they only shed their body once. Hearing this, the Chief Qazi became very angry, and asked the executioner to bring a caul-dron full of water. The cauldron was put on fire, and when the water in the cauldron began boiling, the Qazi ordered Bhai Dyala to be tied up like a bundle with iron chains and thrown in the boiling cauldron. The executioner followed the orders, and threw Bhai Dyala into the cauldron. Bhai Dyala remained calm and kept uttering "waheguru, Waheguru, Waheguru, Waheguru, Waheguru. His martyrdom is still remembered by the Sikhs today in their daily prayers.
