Attempts to distort Sikh history by Wikipedia on Battle of Chamkaur

If I am ever asked whether Wikipedia is a reliable sourcs of any historical event or history?
My answer will be – NO, IT’S NOT.
Changes made in Talk page of Battle of Chamkaur on wikipedia: I am sure they will remove it as they are keen to show guru lost the battle, safe escape of Guru unhurt meant for wikipedia is not victory but they are sticked to their claim that guru was defeated in this battle and Moguls won.
What a shame on Wikipedia?
The authenticated source is Zafarnamah (a religious letter of victory) which was sent by Guru Gobind Singh to Mughal emperor Aurangzeb after the battle of chamkaur. How could any historian devalue it or reject it’s authenticity? Guru Gobind singh writes in his own words as follows;
ਗੁਰਸਨਹ ਚਿਹ ਕਾਰੇ ਚਿਹਲ ਨਰ ॥ ਕਿ ਦਹ ਲਕ ਬਰਾਯਦ ਬਰੋ ਬੇਖ਼ਬਰ ॥੧੯॥ ਕਿ ਪੈਮਾਂ ਸ਼ਿਕਨ ਬੇਦਰੰਗ ਆਮਦੰਦ ॥ ਮਿਯਾਂ ਤੇਗ਼ੋ ਤੀਰੋ ਤੁਫ਼ੰਗ ਆਮਦੰਦ ॥੨੦॥ ਬ ਲਾਚਾਰਗੀ ਦਰਮਿਯਾਂ ਆਮਦਮ ॥ ਬ ਤਦਬੀਰਿ ਤੀਰੋ ਤੁਫ਼ੰਗ ਆਮਦਮ ॥੨੧॥ ਚੁ ਕਾਰ ਅਜ਼ ਹਮਹ ਹੀਲਤੇ ਦਰ ਗੁਜ਼ਸ਼ਤ ॥ ਹਲਾਲ ਅਸਤ ਬੁਰਦਨ ਬ ਸ਼ਮਸ਼ੀਰ ਦਸਤ ॥੨੨॥ ——————————(ਜ਼ਫਰਨਾਮਾ )
Kindly see the second line of this para. It’s clearly written there that ki Dah Lak means ….that das lakh (one million), some historians have wrongly translated it as INFINITIVE.
And, what could my forty men do (at Chamkaur), when a hundred thousand men, unawares, pounced upon them? (19)
Your few historians who have only one motto to distort Sikh history are keen to reject all sources of moral victory of Khalsa which proved the words of 10th master as I will make sparrows break falcons, I will turn Jackals into Lions, I will make 1 fight 125000, then my name shall be Gobind Singh. Here these historians give wrong translation of DAH which is a persian word which means 10.
There are ample evidences to prove it. In Pakistani Punjab specially in Rawalpindi area, people still pronounce DAH for 10, even when pupils learn counting and the read PAHADE, they speak IK DAHYA DAHYA (10) DO DAHYA (20), then how could these historians give a wrong meaning?
Next Guru Gobind Singh fought 14 wars in his life and he won all but now these historians have one motto only to distort Sikh history and show Guru Gobind singh as a loser.
Now let us discuss one more thing. Why did the Moguls sieged the fortress of Chamkaur?
Whether they wanted to kill/arrest the Guru or kill everyone present in fortress?
If we find answer of both these questions, Moguls completely failed in their mission. Guru escaped unhurt but gave a heavy casuality to Moguls though his Sikhs got martyred but with three of his beloveds he successfully escaped unhurt from the heavy seige.
Is it not the victory of Guru and shame for Moguls who couldn’t arrest him? Does it adorn their shoulders or brings shame to their might, to which you and your historians call it defeat of Guru?
Please come out of bias thoughts. It was the power of Amrit given by Guru which till date inherits in veins of Khalsa and inspires them to sacrifice their life for country, religion and their honor.
1)- Just leave aside these 40 Sikhs in Chamkaur, do you have any match to Baba Deep Singh who was given Amrit by Guru himself and fought for many hours and covered a distance of about 8-9 kms after he was beheaded and defeated Moguls?
2)- What about 21 Sikhs in Saragarhi who got martyred when 10,000 Afridi pathans attacked at their fort? They died but after heavy casuality to Pathans as reported more then 200 Pathans died and 1000 seriously wounded?
3)- What about 200-250 unskilled Sikh youths who stopped advance of mighty Indian army and stopped its advance for 72 hrs? The infantry division couldn’t proceed an inch for 72 hrs and then surrendered before Tanks and heavy armor used?
If you can answer these question, then only stick to your biased thoughts that guru and Sikhs were defeated in Chamkaur. Don’t forget Moguls jeopardized in faith when they attacked after taking oath of Qoran.[1]AS Randhawa (talk) 10:01, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

  1. They have also questioned Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s journey of middle-east and martyrdom of hind di chadar Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji Maharaj.
