Fatehgarh Sahib [Dharaminder Singh]. Communal harmony is seen on the sacred land of Fatehgarh Sahib, cherished in the memories of the struggle between the Sikhs and the Mughals. Here the mosque and gurudwara are in the same premises. Once upon a time, the white images of Shri Guru Granth Sahib continued to light in the mosque itself. Later, the new Gurudwara Sri Mastagarh Sahib was also built in this complex, but the mosque was not removed. Even today, the gurudwara texts maintain the mosque.
The mosque of village Mahdiyan was built during the reign of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Historians believe that the Qazi of the mosque opposed the decision of Nawab Wazir Khan of Sirhind to sentence Guru Gobind Singh to the younger Sahibzadas against the Muslim Sharia. This was the reason that during the attack on the Mughals, Baba Banda Singh Bahadur destroyed the entire Sirhind, but did nothing to the mosque. Anti-persecution of Qazi on the innocents of Qazi has preserved its existence even today and saluting his thinking, Sikh Sangat is still maintaining the mosque. Thousands of Sangat are reaching here in the Shaheedi Sabha starting 26 December.
Granthi and Sikh Sangat handling
Granthi Jeet Singh, who has been managing the mosque for the last six years, says that when he came to the gurudwara, the mosque was very bad. He cleans the mosque daily. Although very few people come here to offer namaz, but to maintain the sanctity, the mosque is repaired and cleaned.
