Tegh Bahadur, the ninth Guru of the Sikhs, lived during one of the most turbulent time in Indian history. His grandfather, the fifth Sikh Guru, Arjan Dev was martyred by the Mughal emperor Jahangir for refusing to embrace Islam. Tegh Bahadur's father, the sixth Sikh Guru, Hargobind had several wars forced upon him by emperor Jahangir and his successor Shah Jahan. Tyranny and religious persecution of Hindus and Sikhs reached its peak when Aurangzeb ascended to the throne in delhi. He had long cherished the ambition of converting India to a land of Islam and vigorously started destroying temples and forcing Hindus to embrace Islam or face death.
Fearing the imminent destruction of their religion, a bunch of Kashmiri brahmins visited Amarnath, the abode of Hindu lord Shiva, to invoke his mercy. At Amarnath lord Shiva visited the brahmins in their dream and asked them to go to Guru Tegh Bahadur and plead for his help in saving the Hindu dharma.
Guru Teg Bahadur agreed to visit Aurangzeb in Delhi to ask him to stop the persecution and murder of Hindus. He was arrested on the way and brought in chains to Delhi. Aurangzeb asked Guru Tegh Bahadur to embrace Islam or show a miracle to save his life. Guru Tegh Bahadur refused and was executed with three of his companions. Many saints, sages and heroes have died for the sake of their own convictions, but no one in the history of the world has ever laid down his life to protect a religion or the ideals he did not fully believe in. Guru Tegh Bahadur, deeply imbued with the spirit of kindness and self sacrifice, fearlessly stood up for the Hindus. He died to save their honor and to defend their freedom to practice their religion without fear even though he did not subscribe to the Hindu faith or to its philosophy.

I ordered a few print copies of this comic book but they quickly disappeared as visitors came and scrolled through the pages and asked for a copy for themselves. Just like the Baba Deep Singh comic book the artwork is great and the print quality is also very good. The comic book covers many events in Guru Tegh Bahadur's lifetime. It's a good read for anyone who wishes to read about these stories, and is great for all ages. The comic book covers stories about Atal Rai, atrocities by Jehangir and Shah Jahan, Battles fought by Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji, the story of Makhan Shah finding the true Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur being refused entry to Harmandir Sahib, building the city of Anandpur, clearing Maluk Das's ignorance, visits to Assam, Benares, Bihar, Punjab, etc. It also highlights how Guru Tegh Bahadur watched the martyrdom of Bhai Mati Das, Bhai Sati Das and Bhai Dyal Das before he himself was beheaded for defending others rights to practice their religion even though he didn't believe in the Hindu philosophy.
As with the Baba Deep Singh comic, there are also many references to Gurbani that are mentioned in the script and add to the story line.
Thanks again to Sikh Comics for this initiative. May God bless you with more seva and more similar works.

I must say that I am really humbled to come across such hard endeavour which clearly shows. Your efforts are fully compatible with the esteemness of Sikh philosophy. The highlight is the emphasis given to the collection of sacred hymns taken from the SGGS. Many among us may be aware of our 'Sakhis' but very few have been blessed with the will to be aware of our religion's simple and practical philosophy.
Leave alone children, even adults could get enlightened with your work.
