3 January 1705 martyr Baba Motiram Mehra was grinded by Aurangzeb’s fortress Wazir Khan along with his family in Kolhu…

.

Baba Motiram Mehra, whose description is in every Sikh book. He was beaten by Sirhind’s fort Wazir Khan along with his family in alive Kolhu.

.

His bravery and sacrifice were mentioned by Banda Bairagi, in his memory a Gurudwara is built in Fatehgarh. Baba Motiram Mehra’s uncle Himmat Rai Guru Govind Singh ji was one of the five loved ones. His name was Himmat Singh as a Sikh.

.

His ancestors Jagannath were a resident of Puri Orissa. Later he came to Punjab and got a job in Sirhind. Baba Motiram ji’s father Hariram was in-charge of the kitchen of prison.

.

Four sons of Guru Govind Singh were martyred in the last week of December 1704 It was 27 December 1704 when two small Sahabzad were elected into a living wall after giving two days of torture to Guruji and Guruji Mata Gujri was tortured inhumanly, she also martyred.

.

Baba Motiram’s crime was that in the night of December, Baba Motirama Mehra had somehow delivered milk to two days old hungry brothers and grandmothers.

.

Two days after the martyrdom of Sahabzads and Mata Gujri, Sirhind’s fort Wazir Khan came to know that Motiram had delivered milk to Sahabzads at night. The army picked up the whole family by the order of the Kiledar. Mother, wife, 6-year-old daughter and Motiram, while father and dozens of people were killed there.

.

When Wazir Khan asked, Baba Motiram not only accepted his crime but also expressed his pride. Getting angry with this, Wazir Khan ordered this whole family to grind in alive Kolhu. It dated January 3, 1705, when this family was grinded in Kolhu alive.

.

However, there is a minor difference in the opinion of different scholars regarding the dates of this incident. Some scholars believe that Baba Motiram Mehra and his family were arrested on 30 December 1704 and a January 1705 were crushed in Kolhu. While some believe Wazir Khan got the news on December 30, was arrested with family on December 31, presented on January 1 and grinded on January 3, 1705, with family in Kolhu.

Salute to the martyrdom of him and his family…
