Guru Tegh Bahadur

This is image of A mid 17th century portrait of Guru Tegh Bahadur. To mark the 401st birth anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur, the ninth Sikh guru who stood up against forcible conversions by the Mughals, Prime Minister of India gave an address from the Red Fort on 21st April, 2022. Tegh Bahadur was born in Amritsar on April 21, 1621 to Mata Nanki and Guru Hargobind, the sixth Sikh guru, who raised an army against the Mughals and introduced the concept of warrior saints. As a boy, Tegh Bahadur was called Tyag Mal because of his ascetic nature. He spent his early childhood in Amritsar under the tutelage of Bhai Gurdas, who taught him Gurmukhi, Hindi, Sanskrit, and Indian religious philosophy, while Baba Budha trained him in swordsmanship, archery and horse-riding. He was only 13 when he distinguished himself in a battle against a Mughal chieftain. His bravery and swordsmanship in the battle earned him the name of Tegh Bahadur. He resisted the forced conversions of non-Muslims to Islam. Later, Guru Tegh Bahadur was executed by the orders of Aurangzeb in Delhi in 1675.
