Sikh History Of The Day : 9th March :

1783 : Sikh forces, under Jassa Singh
Ahluwalia and Baghel Singh attacked Delhi
and ransacked Houz Khaas after breaking the
Mori Gate. Sabzi Mandi, Malkagunj and
Pahari Dhiraj areas were plundered. Sikhs set
up their headquarters at Majnu Tilla, out-
skirts of Delhi. During this attack the Sikh
forces captured Delhi. Sardar Baghel Singh
returned to Punjab only after getting some
major concessions for the Sikhs, raising Kesri
Flag on Red Fort and constructing seven
historical Gurudwaras connected with Sikh
Gurus, including Sis Ganj and Rakab Ganj as
memorials to the martydom of Sri Guru Tegh
Bahadhur.
==> BAGHAEL SINGH was a resident of
Chubhal, Amritsar. This Sant Sepahi belonged
to the "Karohdhi" Misl. In sunmat 1847,
working with the Khalsa forces, he attacked
and captured Delhi. He received three lakh
rupees from the Shah Aalam which he used
to build the Delhi Gurudwaras and acquire
their surrounding lands. He returned to
Punjab after successful completion of all the
historical Gurudwara constructions. Baghael
Singh led an exemplary life devoted
extensively to amrit prachar. Many well
known Sikh personalities including Patiala's
Raja Sahib Singh Ji, received amrit under
Baghael Singh's guidance. He passed away
on sunmat 1859 in Amritsar.
-Ref. Mahan Kosh

1846 Treaty of Lahore was signed between
the Lahore Darbar and the British:-
All Sikh territories south of Sutlej taken over
by the British.
Jaladhur Doab to be occupied by Nritish
troops.
An indemnity of one and a half crores
imposed on Lahore Darbar.
All rebellious Sikh troops to be disbanded.
Only 20,000 infantry and 12,000 cavalry to
be maintained by Lahore Darbar.
Dalip Singh recognised as a minor ruler with
Rani Jindan as the regent and Lal Singh as
the Wazir.
Adequate British troops were retained at
Lahore to protect the Raja. Henry Lawrence
was appointed as the british Resident.

1921 : Master Mota Singh condemns
Nanakna Carnage and lashes at the policy of
non-violence at Kot Fatuhi.

1946 : In view of the revolutionary changes
occurring in India and realising the need to
protect Sikh identity, SGPC decales that Sikhs
are a Nation through a resolution.
==> RESOLUTION OF SIKH STATE of the
SHIROMANI GURDWARA PRABANDHAK
COMMITTEE
March 9th, 1946, Sri Amritsar, Panjab
Resolution No. 18
RESOLUTION OF SIKH STATE
The general house of the Shiromani
Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee met under
the presidency of Jathedar Mohan Singh
Nagoke on March 9, 1946 at the S.G.P.C.
headquarters, Teja Singh Samundri Hall,
Amritsar. This meeting was attended by 80
elected members of the S.G.P.C.
Sardar Basant Singh of village Kukkar
proposed the following resolution:
"The present political state of affairs in the
country hold out ominous portents for all
nations, including the Sikhs. In view of the
revolutionary changes which are occurring in
the country and realising the need to protect
Sikh identity:
A. The Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak
Committee (S.G.P.C.) declares that the Sikhs
are a nation;
B. This general house of the S.G.P.C.
considers it imperative to have a Sikh state
to preserve the main Sikh shrines, Sikh social
practices, Sikh self-respect and pride, Sikh
sovereignty and the future prosperity of the
Sikh people.
Therefore this house appeals to the Sikh
people to endeavour to achieve the goal of a
Sikh state."

1966 : The formation of Punjabi Suba was
declared on the radio, but people like Atal
Bihari Bajpayee continued to demonstrate his
stupidity by oppossing it. Former Prime
Minister of Indian Morarji Desai also
opposed the formation of Punjabi Suba.
-Ref. "Sri Amritsar Ji De Darshan Isnan Ate
500 Sala(n) Di Itihasik Directory," by Satnam
Singh Khalsa.

1985 : The Sikh Homeland was sealed
permanently for foreign visiters. Even
Amnesty International, the Human Rights
Commission and the other Humane
organizations were banned in the Sikh zone
(Punjab) so that the world may not get the
true picture of the atrocities being
perpetuated on the Sikhs by the Indian
Government. Since then all of Punjab has
been like a concentration camp for Sikhs.
