Casualties?

Mughal casualties are being overly exagerated...according to their own accounts only 40 Sikhs were killed in action. Mughals were defeated Though they were in large numbers still still they were unable to capture Gobind Singh .After the battle 3 Sikhs along with Gobind Singh were still alive — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ak107839 (talkcontribs) 10:36, 27 March 2015 (UTC) indef blocked sockpuppet of Blocked Aradhyasharma

Sant Singh was given Kalgi, not Sangat Singh[edit]

According to Gobind Sagar (Author Pyara Singh Padam) it was Sant Singh, an Arora Sikh, who was given Kalghi by Guru Gobind Singh. Bhai Sangat Singh (Parmar) was also among the last two and achieved martyrdom but it was Bhai Sant Singh who was given the honor of impersonating as Guru to dodge the attackers. Pyara Singh Padam uses Bhat Vahi to state this. --History Sleuth (talk) 01:16, 14 October 2009 (UTC)


Mughal Casualties[edit]

The article states that the Mughals suffered 90% casualties. Is that a typo? Or did these guys kill an average of 900000 soldiers on average between them? Colonel Marksman (talk) 09:16, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

It was said in the zafarnama that each probably killed 100's. If the groups of 4 or 5 sikhs were out fighting for hours 90% is an over-estimate but 100's if not 1000's would not be un-forseeable. I assume you are a pathan yourself? I'm interested to see where outnumbered armies of pathans defeated sikhs. I'm googling right now, but your input is appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.48.169.110 (talk) 05:34, 21 November 2012 (UTC)


Pathans didn't defeat Sikhs, the taliban still refuses to demolish hari singh nalwa gurudawara, and the pathans still wear salwar kameez to hide from Sikhs. See qazi nur muhammad jang namah where he talks of their cowardice despite being among them.

Take your brave stories, and tell whem to your bacha baaz. Sikhs haven't really ever fought a battle where they have numerical superiority, which battles are these that muslims won? How did under 100k Sikhs rule over everything from Delhi/Tibet to Kabul?

Not by being defeated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.141.204.116 (talk) 20:30, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Sir battle of chamkaur is falsified described because Mughals were in large numbers (one million) and Sikhs were 48 in number still Mughals failed to capture Sikh leader Guru Gobind Singh.So how it could be victory for Mughals as they broke their oaths of Quran earlier.For more information please read the Zafarnamah of Guru Gobind Singh in which he clearly states that he had won moral victory over Aurangzeb Mughal emperor of India.

Mughal were not won they failed to capture Gobind singh despite in large numbers.Mughals broke the oaths of holy Quran and broke their oaths and betrayed Sikh forces.Despite in large numbers they failed to overcome Sikh forces.in Guru Gobind Singh 's zafarnamah he clearly stated that he had won a moral victory over Aurangzeb Mughal emperor of India.Please edit the result of the battle of chamkaur the Mughals failed to capture Gobind Singh .

I would ask any responding Admin to deny these requests, until a consensus has been achieved on the talk page. Also note the IP and "new user" AK107839 both share the same POV as recently blocked user:Aradhyasharma. Sockpuppets? --Kansas Bear (talk) 06:57, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

@Kansas bear what do you know about Indian history. ? Have you read zafarnama of Guru Gobind Singh in which he stated that I had won a moral victory over the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.Your 10 lakh troops could not do any harm to me because i m under the protection of almighty god.You broke your oaths of Holy Quran still you failed in your mission. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ak107839 (talkcontribs) 11:13, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

If you want proof of the battle then read the zafarnamah of Guru Gobind Singh.There were only a few Sikhs and Mughals were one million in number.

For more details Googlesearch zafarnamah of Guru Gobind Singh — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ak107839 (talkcontribs) 11:16, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Change Info[edit]

Ak107839 (talk) (indef blocked sockpuppet of Blocked Aradhyasharma) 12:06, 27 March 2015 (UTC) sir most respectfully i want to say that the result of this battle is false.Read zafarnamah which is a correct description of the battle. Read zafarnamah in the references section in the bottom of battle of chamkaur page in which guru Gobind Singh states that he had won a moral victory over the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb. Despite Mughals were in large numbers still they failed to capture me (Gobind Singh)

so please replace "Mughal victory" with "Moral victory for Sikhs according to Guru Gobind Singh 's Zafarnamah (epistle of victory)"

Not done Please provide a reliable source for your change. Joseph2302 (talk) 12:08, 27 March 2015 (UTC)


See preferences section at the bottom of the page 8th point in the references section Zafarnamah clearly states what happened at chamkaur and further description of the battle

Ak107839 (talk) 12:15, 27 March 2015 (UTC)e as follows;

The authenticated source is zafarnamah (a religious letter of victory) which was sent by Guru Gobind Singh to Mughal emperor Aurangzeb after the battle of chamkaur. How could any historian devalue it or reject it's authenticity? Guru Gobind singh writes in his own words as follows; ਗੁਰਸਨਹ ਚਿਹ ਕਾਰੇ ਚਿਹਲ ਨਰ ॥ ਕਿ ਦਹ ਲਕ ਬਰਾਯਦ ਬਰੋ ਬੇਖ਼ਬਰ ॥੧੯॥ ਕਿ ਪੈਮਾਂ ਸ਼ਿਕਨ ਬੇਦਰੰਗ ਆਮਦੰਦ ॥ ਮਿਯਾਂ ਤੇਗ਼ੋ ਤੀਰੋ ਤੁਫ਼ੰਗ ਆਮਦੰਦ ॥੨੦॥ ਬ ਲਾਚਾਰਗੀ ਦਰਮਿਯਾਂ ਆਮਦਮ ॥ ਬ ਤਦਬੀਰਿ ਤੀਰੋ ਤੁਫ਼ੰਗ ਆਮਦਮ ॥੨੧॥ ਚੁ ਕਾਰ ਅਜ਼ ਹਮਹ ਹੀਲਤੇ ਦਰ ਗੁਜ਼ਸ਼ਤ ॥ ਹਲਾਲ ਅਸਤ ਬੁਰਦਨ ਬ ਸ਼ਮਸ਼ੀਰ ਦਸਤ ॥੨੨॥ ——————————(ਜ਼ਫਰਨਾਮਾ )

Kindly see the second line of this para. It’s clearly written there that ki Dah Lak means ….that das lakh (one million), some historians have wrongly translated it as INFINITIVE.

And, what could my forty men do (at Chamkaur), when a hundred thousand men, unawares, pounced upon them? (19)

Your few historians who have only one motto to distort Sikh history are keen to reject all sources of moral victory of Khalsa which proved the words of 10th master as I will make sparrows break falcons, I will turn Jackals into Lions, I will make 1 fight 125000, then my name shall be Gobind Singh. Here these historians give wrong translation of DAH which is a persian word which means 10. There are ample evidences to prove it. In Pakistani Punjab specially in Rawalpindi area, people still pronounce DAH for 10, even when pupils learn counting and the read PAHADE, they speak IK DAHYA DAHYA (10) DO DAHYA (20), then how could these historians give a wrong meaning?

Next Guru Gobind Singh fought 14 wars in his life and he won all but now these historians have one motto only to distort Sikh history and show Guru Gobind singh as a loser.

Now let us discuss one more thing. Why did the Moguls sieged the fortress of Chamkaur? Whether they wanted to kill/arrest the Guru or kill everyone present in fortress?

If we find answer of both these questions, Moguls completely failed in their mission. Guru escaped unhurt but gave a heavy casuality to Moguls though his sikhs got martyrd but with three of his beloveds he succefully escaped unhurt from the heavy seige.

Is it not the victory of Guru and shame for Moguls who couldn't arrest him? Does it adorn their shoulders or brings shame to their might, to which you and your historians call it defeat of Guru?

Please come out of bias thoughts. It was the power of Amrit given by Guru which till date inherits in veins of Khalsa and insoires them to sacrifice their life for country, religion and their honor.

Just leave aside these 40 Sikhs in chamkaur, do you have any match to Baba Deep Singh who was given Amrit by Guru himself and fought for many hours and covered a distance of about 8-9 kms after he was beheaded and defeated Moguls? What about 21 Sikhs in Saragarhi who got martyred when 10,000 afridi pathans attacked at their fort? They died but after heavy casuality to Pathans as reported more then 200 Pathans died and 1000 seriously wounded? What about 200-250 unskilled Sikh youths who stopped advance of mighty Indian army and stopped its advance for 72 hrs? The infantry division couldn't proceed an inch for 72 hrs and then surrendered before Tanks and heavy armor used?

If you can answer these question, then only stick to your biased thoughts that guru and Sikhs were defeated in Chamkaur. Don't forget Moguls jeopardized in faith when they attacked after taking oath of Qoran.[1]AS Randhawa (talk) 10:01, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Sir i am amzaed that wikipeadi do not accept Zafarnama as an authenticated source of information on battle of Chamkaur? In this letter to Aurangzeb, guru ji himself mentions the presence of Mogul army was one million. Se


Sir Source is zafarnamah (a religious letter of victory) which was sent by Guru Gobind Singh to Mughal emperor Aurangzeb after the battle of chamkaur.

See preferences section at the bottom of the page 8th point in the references section Zafarnamah clearly states what happened at chamkaur and further description of the battle Ak107839 (talk) 12:18, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

The Zafarnāma /zəfərnɑːmɑː/ (Punjabi: ਜ਼ਫ਼ਰਨਾਮਾ, Persian: ظفرنامہ‎, Hindi: ज़फ़रनामा, lit. Epistle of Victory) was a victory letter sent by Guru Gobind Singh in 1705 to the Mughal Emperor of India, Aurangzeb after the BATTLE OF CHAMKAUR. The letter is written in Persian verse.

Guru Gobind Singh sent Bhai Daya Singh to Ahmednagar to give it to Aurangzeb.

In this letter, Guru Gobind Singh reminds Aurangzeb how he and his henchmen had broken their oaths sworn upon the Qur'an. He also states that in spite of his several sufferings, he had won a moral victory over the Emperor who had broken all his vows. Despite sending a huge army to capture or kill the Guru, the Mughal forces did not succeed in their mission.

In the 111 verses of this notice, Guru Gobind Singh rebukes Aurangzeb for his weaknesses as a human being and for excesses as a leader. Guru Ji also confirms his confidence and his unflinching faith in the Almighty even after suffering extreme personal loss of his Father, Mother, and all four of his sons to Aurangzeb's tyranny. Guru ji invited Aurangzeb to meet him in Kangar village near Bathinda (Punjab) and said no need to worry as Brar tribe will not harm him (Aurangzeb) as they are under his command. On the way, there will be no danger to your life, For, the whole tribe of Brars accepts my command. (59)

Of the 111 verses, the maximum numbers of 34 verses are to praise God; 32 deal with Aurangzeb’s invitation for the Guru to meet him and the Guru's refusal to meet the Emperor – instead the Guru asks Aurangzeb to visit him; 24 verses detail the events in the Battle of Chamkaur, which took place on 22 December 1704; 15 verses reprove Aurangzeb for breaking promise given by him and by his agents to the Guru; In verses 78 and 79, Guru Gobind Singh had also warned Aurangzeb about the resolve of the Khalsa not to rest till his evil empire is destroyed; 6 verses praise Aurangzeb.

Guru Gobind Singh wrote this letter from village Dina in Malwa region of the Punjab. Guru Gobind Singh spent few days at Dina and then moved to Dod, Kotkapura, Dhilwan Kalan, Jaitu, Muktsar, Lakhi Jangal, and Damdama Sahib. Guru Gobind Singh's last fight with Mughal Army happened at Khidrane Di Dhaab now called Sri Muktsar Sahib.

  • The Encyclopedia of Sikhism, nothing stating a Sikh victory.
  • Zafarnamah of Guru Gobind Singh, is a primary source, biased and written from only one point of view.
  • The Sikh Encyclopedia, unpublished, no author, not peer reviewed. Nothing stating a Sikh victory.

Take long hard look at the sources you have provided. Everyone of them is from a Sikh POV("....Sikh sovereignty", "...life and work of Guru Gobind Singh", "..Encyclopedia of Sikhism", "The Sikh Encyclopedia", "Zafarnama"). Should I expect non-bias from these sources? This article is about a siege. The Mughals took the place they were besieging, thus won the siege. Does it mention in the result that Gobind Singh escaped? Yes. Then that is all there is to say. This article appears to have become a coatrack for other underlying issues(editors with a particular POV, here to make things right, etc).
  • "The Sikh Zafar-namah of Guru Gobind Singh, by Louis E. Fenech, Oxford University Press, page 66, "The Ẓafar-nāmah in this light assumes the form of an intriguing tautology: certainly the Guru was routed by Mughal forces at both Anandpur and Chamkaur; put bluntly, he and his Sikh were militarily defeated and left scattered.
Odd you were unable to find this source! --Kansas Bear (talk) 19:22, 29 March 2015 (UTC)


The original zafarnamah of Guru Gobind Singh stated that Mughals took oaths of holy Quran that they wont attack Sikhs if they vacate the fort of Anandpur .But Aurangzeb Mughal emperor broke his oaths and attacked near river sarsa the battle of parivar vichhora took place there.Both Mughals and Sikhs faced heavy losses but according to Guru Gobind singh 's zafarnamah on reaching chamkaur 40 Sikhs were attacked by 1 million troops.At the end both sides faced casualties.But God showed me passage and I escaped unhurt not even a single hair of my body was harmed.He also rebukes Aurangzeb for breaking his oaths of the holy Quran and also stated that he had won a moral victory over the Mughal emperor . This is an accurate information the result was Gobind singh escaped and sent zafarnamah afterwards Ak107839 (talk) 19:47, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

As I said, the Zafarnama was written by Gobind Singh from his POV and is clearly his account of what transpired. It is a primary source that should not be used. Your continued listing of "sources" and page numbers mean nothing without quotes.
