Guru Arjan Dev ji Shaheedi Gurpurab 2019

The shaheedi diwas or shaheedi gurpurab of Shri Guru Arjan Dev ji in 2019 is on Friday, 7 June 2019. According to desi calendar, the shaheedi gurpurab of Guru Arjan Dev ji is observed on Jeth Sudi 4, which falls 7th June in the current year.

Guru Arjan Dev ji was the first martyr of sikh faith, who was executed on the orders of mughal emperor Jahangir. Many people were following the teachings of Guru Arjan Dev ji and mughal rulers were afraid at the growth of sikh religion. So the emperor Jahangir tried to convert Guru ji to Islam and he was tortured to death when refused to convert to islamic faith.
This Gurpurab is observed in the peak summer season and sikhs organize 'Chabeel' (free service of cold & sweetened water) at many places in the memory of guru ji.
