Guru Tegh Bahadur — the ninth #Sikh guru who sacrificed himself for religious freedom

Historian Haroon Khalid wrote that Aurangzeb forbade anyone from moving the decapitated head of Guru Tegh Bahadur, but two of his followers defied his orders. According to information available at the gurdwara, Bhai Jaita Ji took the Guru’s head to Anandpur, the city the guru had founded, while Bhai Lakhi Shah Vanjara Ji took the body to his village, Rakab Ganj, and cremated the body by setting his own house on fire, to avoid arousing the suspicion of Mughal soldiers.
