Sikh Victory over New Delhi & Constructed Memorial Gurdwaras 1783.

The Sikh community by & large is known brave but not clever or street smart to understand psychology of other co Indians. The Sikhs are capable for unlimited labor in the agriculture fields,, fighting courage on the borders for country but a number of times unsuccessful for diplomatic solutions in advancement of the interest of their community. Muslim historian Syed Ahmed Latif wrote how Baba Baghel Singh along with other two Sikh Generals: Srd Jassa Singh Ahluwalia & Srd Jassa Singh Ramgaria defeated Mughal forces under his command & he on 11 March 1783, entered the Red Fort in Delhi and occupied the Diwani-Am, the Mughal emperor Shah Alam II made a settlement with them agreeing to allow Baghel Singh to raise Gurdwaras on Sikh historical sites in the city and receive six annas in a rupee (37.5%) of all the octroi duties in the capital. Baba Baghel Singh stayed in Sabzi Mandi with 4000 troops and took charge of the police station in Chandni Chowk for Mission constructing Gurdwaras.
They located sites connected with the lives of the Gurus and had shrines raised thereon within the space of eight months, from April to November 1783. Gurdwara Sis Ganj marked the spot in the main Mughal street of Chandni Chowk where Guru Tegh Bahadur had been executed under the fiat of the emperor and Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib, near modern day Parliament House, where the body was cremated. Bangla Sahib and Bala Sahib commemorated the Eighth Guru, Guru Har Krishan. Three other Gurdwaras were built at Majnu ka Tilla, Moti Bagh, and Telivara.Baba Bhaghel singh having fulfilled mission to build Memorial for Guru Sahibs and moved back to Punjab leaving Delhi for Muslim rule. The historians did not found merit for his decision on retreat and not taking over the charge for Governance from Delhi!
