Dal Khalsa wishes all a very Happy Bandi Chor Divas the day when our
6th Guru,Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji was released from Jail along with 52
Princes,before being released Guru Ji said he will not leave unless the
52 princes leave with him.The Emperor then said however many of the
princes can hold on to your cloak can go free,so Guru Ji got a cloak
with 52 tasels hanging off,so each prince could hold on to it.
This lead to all 52 Princes being released along with
Guru Hargobind Sahib ji.
Guru Ji was jailed due to the conspiracy of Chandu Bhaman,who had earlier got the 5th Guru,Guru Arjan Dev Ji Sirtaaj Shaheedan Deh martyred.Chandu tried his best to get Guru Ji poisoned and killed while Guru Ji was jailed.In the end he failed & Jahangir had to ask for forgiveness from Guru Ji,Sai Mia Mir advised Jahangir that if he really wishes to rid himself of the sins he has commited he should release Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji and that was exactly what he did.
