Not quite sure if the transliteration in Devanagari is correct. Please can someone double check it for me. Sukh 13:57, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)


The section on the future Guru's birth is suspect as the name Bahadur was rewarded to the young man after he had evidenced noteworthy courage on the battle field at age 13?, using his sword so well he was had the title Bahadur a title of honor appended to his name. For men to have known of the childs name 13 years before it was given speaks of majic or fortunetelling. Perhaps the writer just got the name wrong?

Earning his Sikh martrydom? I did not know of the special category. Sikhs have earned martrydom often, and have been awarded many medals of valor in many armies, to my, limited knowledge, Sikhs generally use the term earned martrydomor was martyred. He was, as is well documented in history, beheaded during his confrontation with Auranzeb in an effort to stop the ruler from taking steps to forcibly convert all of India's Hindus, starting with the Hindu Pandits of Kashmir who had come to him seeking help.Atmamatma 02:45, 30 October 2007 (UTC)Before the execution I think he was offered, as was an earlier Sikh Guru, a reprive if he would do some majic or perform a miracle. Both Gurus refused to do majic.

Dubious content removed[edit]

The following content is removed from the article page to here.

Guru Gobind Singh has written about the martyrdom of Guru Tegh Bahadur in Bachitra Natak:

"Guru Tegh bahadur was the protector of the tilak (ointment) and janeu (sacred thread) of the Hindus. In the land of the gods rang shouts of adoration."

Where is this quoted from - book, publisher, page? Who said these lines - Guru Gobind Singh, translater, reviwer, poet in Guru Gobind Singh's court? There is no uniform content of so called "Dasam Granth". Scholars are still debating how much of the content is that of Sikh Guru Gobind Singh, as such one cannot assert on Wikipedia saying -"Guru Gobind Singh has written.....". --RoadAhead =Discuss= 19:15, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

This is a garbage article written to portray Aurangazeb as a fanatic. This supposed guru, Tegh Bahadur, got what he deserved for causing unrest. No emperor or king in those times would tolerate such a new, pseudo religion, nay cult, to challenge their rule. The mughals were right to put these sikhs to the sword. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:43, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

when did he die?[edit]

The first sentence says Nov. 24 but the section Execution says Nov. 11. I presume this is a calendar issue (Nov. 24 Julian falls on Nov. 24 Gregorian) but I don't know the facts. Can someone who is confident fix it? --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 15:56, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
