Excerpts from the Book
The martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev Ji was perpetrated with what heart-shaking and pathetic tortures and with what determination and stability of mind had he borne the torture is not only an exemplary event of our religious history but unique and matchless in the world history too. The tortures perpetrated on him by keeping him starved, putting him in hot/boiling water and bearing the burning sand on his body and then keeping him in the cold water of river Ravi and all such acts carried out on him for four-five days are really pathetic and heart shaking. The calmness, determination, and stability of mind shown by Satguru Ji are amazing.
The basic cause of the martyrdom was the rulers who were being led by a bigot and eccentric Muslims headed by Sheikh Ahmad Sirhindi (1561-1624), also called Mujadid- Alif-Sani. We shall describe the role played by him and his Nakshbandi Movement who had become very influential. The role that its preachings played as well as the involvement of Jahangir will be discussed. The references made in Tuzak-i-Jahangiri cannot be ignored. This book explains all other significant reasons with well-researched sources.
