Saka: The Martyrs of Nankana Sahib
The SAKA constitutes the core of the Gurudwara Reform Movement started by the Sikhs in the early 20th century. Gurdwara Nankana Sahib was managed by Mahant Narayan Das in the early 20th century. Money-power made the Mahant corrupt and he started using the Gurdwara`s money for wrong deeds. The Mahant was a very desolute and wicked person who also used Gurdwara premises for immoral and highly objectionable activities. . When the Mahant was asked to reform himself, he started making preparations to oppose the Panth (Sikh community) instead. On Feburary 20, 1921 there was a peaceful protest against the Mahant to hand over Nankana Sahib back to the Sikh community but he got all the protestors brutally killed with indirect help from the Britishers. How Nankana Sahib was finally freed from the clutches of Mahant after this incident forms the crux of story. In political significance, it comes next only to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre of April 1919.
