Sahibzada Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh in captivity


FATEH SINGH, SAHIBZADA (1699-1705), the youngest of Guru Gobind Singh's four sons, was born to Mata Jito ji (also known as Mata Sundari ji) at Anandpur on 12 December 1699. After the death of his mother, on 5 December 1700, he was brought up under the care of his grandmother, Mata Gujari Kaur ji, with whom he remained till the last. On 26 December 1705, he was martyred at Sirhind along with his elder brother, Zorawar Singh. He is probably the youngest recorded martyr in history who knowingly laid down his life at the very tender age of 5 years.

Later, Baba Banda Singh Bahadur came from Nanded and waged a war with the Nawab of Sirhind and punished him for his misdeeds.
