History of Baisakhi
Guru Tegh Bahadur is believed to have been publicly beheaded by Aurangzeb (Mughal ruler) in ancient times. Because he was the one who stood up for the rights of Hindus. After the death of Guru Teg Bahadur, his son Guru Govind Singh became the next Guru. In 1650, the Punjab was in turmoil and faced with corrupt rulers. There the people had no rights, no law, no justice. Especially the weak suffered incessantly and silently. Therefore, this is the day when Guru Govind Singh wanted to instill strength and courage in all.He summoned a group of Sikhs and assembled them in Anandapur. At that meeting he raised his sword, raised his voice against injustice, and called on the people to accept the challenge to die willingly for the truth.Finally, by Guru Gobind Singh his Panj Pyare (The His five Sikhs, known as the Five Beloved, were born. Guru Govind Singh then baptized them instead of killing them and the first Amrit rituals were performed.
