Guru Tegh Bahadur

Guru Tegh BahadurGuru Tegh Bahadur is the ninth of the Sikh Gurus. Guru Tegh Bahadur sacrificed himself to protect Hindus. He was asked by Aurungzeb, the Mughal emperor, under coercion by Naqshbandi Islamists, to convert to Islam or to sacrifice himself. The exact place where he attained martyrdom is in front of the Red Fort in Delhi (Lal Qila) and the gurdwara is called SisGanj. This marked a turning point for Sikhism. His successor, Guru Gobind Singh further militarised his followers.
