  • His name was lakshman dev bhardwaj and only brahman use bhardwaj and secand guru govind ji came to him for help and he was hindu not sikh till end of his life.

  • I feel very sorry for way of his end. He should not have been caught with family. He should have managed to escape in forests & come back if necessary.

  • Dear sir Pranaam, his real name was Madho Das, a Hindu tantrik. The Mughals at that time used to call him Jinn, since his actions were like a Jinn; they were terrified. The Mughals always claimed that there were 11 Gurus, not 10, and now we know it was because of including Banda Bahadur’s name in the list.

    And just a digression, it was Guru Gobind Singh who approached Madho Das, as they were childhood friends. At that time, the name of Guru Gobind Singh was well known, so they both recognized each other. The rest is history, as they say.

    Later, because of Mata Sundari, the hitherto undefeated army of Banda Bahadur was split into two – the Bandai Khalsa (with Banda Bahadur) and Tat Khalsa (with the 5 K).

    Dear Sir, with utmost respect to you and Sikhism, I would humbly suggest you examine the actions of Mata Sundari, which is the cause of Hindu – Sikh / Khalistan strife today.

  • At the age of 48 I came to know about this great Warrier of our country. No where in History it was thought to us. The real credit goes to Sardar Prakash singh Badal and Mr Modi who oragnised a great programme in Banda’s memory at New Delhi.

    That great job of Mr Newar towards cultivating nationalism will go a long way. People like us are always with him and his team. Let us not leave any stone unturned to take on ride the left wing intellectual and sickuluars. They are real sick people.
