The Jang Namah (1764-65)

Description This summary given in English of the original Persian account of the 7th inversion of Ahmad Shah Abdali on Punjab is a literal translation and paraphrase of "Jang Nama" & important portions relating to the Sikhs. It is an eye-witness account of the invasion. Despite its derogatory and abusive language (called dictionary of abuses) about the Sikhs, it brings out the indomitable courage and purity of character of Sikh warriors. It is a tribute to the Sikhs and their unique character though apparently masked by a surficial condemnation. It is an authentic historical source of 18th century slice of Sikh history. The translated Summary in English from Persian makes a unique contribution in widening its readership across the globe. Irascible praise of Sikh warriorship by an enemy rabidly communal in outlook and being an eye-witness account buds credibility and authenticity Sikh moral and martial character. Translated summary is and epitome of this primary source of Sikh history.[edit]
