Capturing the Red Fort

Bhai Baghel Singh (1730 – 1802) won over the Red Fort during the Sikh Misl period. First looting the neighbouring villages and towns, he along with other Sardars attacked the Red Fort in March of 1783. The Sardars settled on a treaty with the Emperor, collected their loot and returned to Punjab. However, Bhai Baghel Singh stayed and built gurudwaras at historical sites in Delhi, and he is remembered for carrying out this important mission.

This speed painting captures this key moment in Sikh history and celebrates Bhai Baghel Singh’s achievements.
