The SSN has reported that the area around Sis Ganj Sahib is tense after the Delhi authorities along with the police have attempted to remove memorial of Bhai Mati Das’ Martyrdom. The site was used by Sikhs to give free water to anyone in need of a drink.
The situation became tense after Sikhs protested the demolition of the memorial which resulted in a minor clash. A person on the scene stated that Sikhs were beaten up by the police when stopping the demolition and the area is now under a curfew and no one is being allowed to get near the site.
Sis Ganj Sahib is where the Martyrdom of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji took place on the hands of the Mughals and the memorial site of Bhai Sati Das is remembered as the site where Bhai Sahib was made shaheed.
