Title Khoon Shahidan
Description This poetic verse written in popular "kissa kav" tradition of Punjabi poetry narrates the tragic massacre of the Sikhs inside the sacred shrine of "Nankana Sahib", the birthplace of Guru Nanak. Many peacefully protesting Sikhs were butchered and burnt alive by the illegal occupants of the shrine. This poetic verse gives a graphic description of the brutal slaughter of the Sikhs in a heart-moving poetry. It uses the same meter throughout the whole composition which makes its diction a bit palpable and burdensome. To that it lacks variety content wise, it is faithful to chronological events of history. Like a religious ballad, it celebrates and pays a glorious tribute to the Sikh martyrs of this tragic episode
