    Nawab Kapur Singh Singhpuria (1697 - 1753)
    [size=+0]A commanding figure who led Sikhs through the dark period was Nawab Kapur Singh, the founder of Dal Khalsa. Nawab Kapur Singh was born of a Virk family of jats in 1697. He is also known to history as Kapur Singh Faizullapuria. When Mughal rulers offered jagir(estate) to the Sikhs, the Sarbat Khalsa decided to offer the jagirdari to Sardar Kapur Singh and honour him with the title of Nawab(Duke). The Sardar Kapur Singh showing extreme humility, consented to accept this only if it was consecrated by touching the feet of Panj Pyare. Kapur Singh by his bold example and his wise leadership, welded the Sikhs into a strong fighting force and implanted in their minds the vision of political sovereignty. For nearly a quarter of a century, Nawab Kapur Singh Singhpuria led the Sikhs through most trying times.[/size]

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
