Baba Jujhur Singh at the Battle of Chamkaur. "I shall die fighting, with my face towards the enemy, with the Naam on my lips and the Guru in my heart."
Second eldest son of the tenth Master, Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
At the battle of Chumkaur on 6 Dec 1705, Guru Gobind Singh, his two son’s Baba Ajit Singh and Baba Jujhar Singh and 40 loyal Sikhs defended themselves in a small fort against the Mugal army which had pursued them relentlessly since they had been forced to leave Anandpur Sahib. As they ran out of ammunition and arrows, Sikhs inside split themselves into batches of five each who would go out one after the other to engage the besiegers in hand to hand combat.Watching his brother Baba Ajit Singh attain Shaheedi, Baba Jujhar Singh desired to fight in the battlefield, as well, even though doing so meant certain death. He asked his father, “Guru Sahib, permit me, dear father, to go where my brother has gone. Don’t say that I am too young. I am your son. I am a Singh, a Lion, of yours. I shall prove worthy of you. I shall die fighting, with my face towards the enemy, with the Naam on my lips and the Guru in my heart.” Guru Gobind Singh embraced him and said, “Go my son and wed the life-giving bride, Death. May the Almighty be with you always.” Guru Sahib gave blessings to Baba Jujhar Singh just like a father gives blessings to the bride on the day of her marriage. Guru added, “I asked my father to give his life for “dharam” (righteousness and justice). Today, what I told my father, I now tell you son.”Baba Jujhar Singh led the last sally towards the end of the day (7 December 1705), and laid down his life fighting near the place where he had earlier seen his elder brother fall. He was just 14 years old when he gave his life for the Sikh faith. Bhai Himmat Singh and Bhai Sahib Singh (two of the original Panj Piarey) along with 3 other Singhs followed Sahibzada Baba Jujhar Singh into battle. The Mughals were shocked at what they saw. It looked as if Ajit Singh had come back. “Whoever dies, let him die such a death, that he does not have to die again.
