Kashmiri Pandits were being harassed and threatened to convert their faith to Islam. Guru opposed this forced conversion to “one true religion”, therefore, he was imprisoned by the ruler.
In 1675, Guru along with some of his companions was brought to Delhi and were asked to convert to Islam or face execution. On refusing, Guruji and his companions were chained and tortured in the public for five long days in most inhumane ways. Even after that Guru refused to give up and finally was beheaded.
His supreme sacrifice is still remembered by not only Sikhs but by the whole country of India. By this ultimate martyrdom, he earned the title of “Hind-Di-Chadar” means Shield of India.
So, these were the 7 most painful and cruel deaths in the history.
