A picture was seen on social media which showed captured Sikh soldiers in North Africa by the Nazi Afrika Korps praying with Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji while in jail.
The Sikhs were given a special room in the jail according to an historian where they sat and relied on Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji for blessings. It’s unclear whether the prisoners of war were freed but the picture provides the incredible story of the Sikhs taking Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji at the world’s worst war zones.
This was the caption of the photograph:
