1762 Vadda Ghalughara (Sikh)
The second Sikh genocide was the mass killing of Sikhs by the Afghani Durrani Forces in February of 1762 during his sixth invasion of India in the present day state of Punjab in India. An estimated 25,000 – 30,000 Sikhs including women and children were killed, which was nearly half of the Sikh population at the time. Sikhs were persecuted for decades prior to this massacre.
Students and/or Co-Workers may visit their local Gurdwara and pay respects to Sikh Martyrs.
