Footnotes

  • Banda Bahadur (circa 1670-1716) was a prominent Sikh military commander, and a disciple of Guru Gobind Singh. He fought a series of successful actions against Mughal forces, including the sacking of the Mughal provincial capital, Samana, in 1709, and the siege of Sirhind in 1710, which resulted in Sikh control of territory stretching from the Sutlej to the Yamuna. He was captured in 1716 and died under torture.
