Bhai Mani Singh was a great Sikh personality of 18th century and occupies a very esteemed position in Sikh history as one of the most famous martyrs of the Sikh faith. Bhai Mani Singh was a childhood companion of Guru Gobind Singh. He assumed the control and steered the course of the Sikh destiny at a very critical stage in Sikh history.
In 1726 ca. when the Mughals ruled Punjab and were bent on exterminating the Sikhs, no Sikh was allowed to utter the word "Guru". When there was a price on the head of every Sikh.
A scholar, a devoted Sikh, and a leader, Bhai Mani Singh laid down his life to uphold the dignity of the Sikh religion as well as nation. The nature of his martyrdom in which he was dismembered joint by joint has become a part of the daily Sikh Ardas (prayer).
