Martyrdom of Guru Tegh Badhadur Sahib
Martyrdom of Guru Tegh Badhadur Sahib is a work-restricted holy day to commemorate the 9th Guru of the Sikhs who was killed by Mughal rulers in 1675 for defending Hindus facing forcible conversion to Islam.
Reflection: Give up your head, but foresake not those whom
you have undertaken to protect
says Tegh Bahadur, sacrifice your life, but relinquish not your faith.
