Jahangir, with his own particular jealousies, charged ridiculous affirmations against both Sikhism and the Guru Arjan Singh had ordered the Adi Granth, the principal official Edition of the Sikh sacred writing, which later extended to the Guru Granth Sahib. The Mughal Emperor blamed the Sikh Granth for criticizing the Hindu and Muslim religions and delivered the claim that Jahangir’s child and opponent, the insubordinate Khusrau, was supported by Guru Arjan Dev Ji. Khusrau was viewed as an extremely fitting emperor of India by Akbar and numerous different nobles of the court, more so than the wine-and opium-Loving Jahangir.

It is just an endeavor to convey the genuine history to the information of basic national. The adversaries of the Great Nation’s way of life and civilisation have created half cooked history for the sake of secularism and resilience. Tragically history has been wound to suit the belief system of few, who changed everything to fit their short terms and long terms objectives of keeping the strings of intensity in their grasp. This demonstration of injustice with History has caused the loss of self-pride and enthusiastic qualities in the present youth. They are cut off from their underlying foundations. May truth prevail!re holding up to be uncovered to reveal to us who our precursors were and the vestige of our reality!
