1901 British census of India collected data on caste, tribe and religious affiliations of Indians. The census recorded 20,000 rajput converts to Sikhism.
They taught their Shastravidya to the Khatri Sikh Gurus and the common Sikhs, which was before that exclusive to Rajput princes only.
Such was the affection of the Sikh Gurus that these Rajput princes sacrificed their lives in saving the Guru's Panth which awarded them high ranking positions in the Khalsa army.
