The ninth Sikh guru who was killed by Aurangazeb
The Guru resisted the forced conversions of the Hindu Kashmiri Pandits and non-Muslims to Islam, and was publicly killed in 1675 on the orders of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in Delhi for himself refusing Mughal rulers and defying them. Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib and Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib in Delhi mark the places of execution and cremation of the Guru's body. His martyrdom is remembered as the Shaheedi Divas of Guru Tegh Bahadur every year on 24 November, according to the Nanakshahi calendar released by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee in 2003.

On 11 November 1675 ninth Sikh guru Guru Tegh Bahadur was executed in Delhi by the orders of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, because he refused to abandon his faith and convert to Islam.
