    Fatehgarh Sahib: It is said that Diwan Todar mal had bought the land for cremation of the younger Sahibzadas of Guru Gobind Singh by spreading the 'ashrafis' on the ground. Three centuries later, people in Punjab still dig at night at the Sirhind haveli of Diwan Todar Mal to hunt for those 'ashrafis'.
    The sad part is that the SGPC has never taken any notice of the haveli which now stands reduced to ruins. Some people are often seen taking even the bricks from the haveli away.

    Parts of the haveli have been encroached upon by some farmers. Looking at the haveli it is clear that at least the SGPC has completely forgotten the sacrifice of Diwan Todar Mal.

    On top of it, the SGPC's way of caring for its heritage has resulted in such a situation where the Sikhs today cannot show their children where is the 'Thanda Burj', or where was the wall in which the younger sahibzadas were bricked alive, or where is the Chamkaur Garhi.

    First off all the entire sikh history has to be studied and unified.
    Different authors of history give different account of events which is very confusing for the readers. Prachin Panth Prakash by Bhai Ratan Singh Bhangu is giving a totally different version of the shaheedi of younger Sahibzadas.
    Much is needed to be done for The Chardi Kala of Sikhi.

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!
