Tyranny of Mir Mannu, Governor of Lahore (1748-1753): Mannu ordered slaughtering the Sikh. The captured Sikhs were beaten with wooden mallets. To break will and high spirits of Sikh women, they were made to watch their children pierced by the spears. Cut into pieces and put as a necklace to their mothers. Dogs ate their flesh.There now stands Gurdwara Shaheed Ganj, Lahore. "We are like plants and Mannu a sickle, all know. The more he cuts us, the more we grow."
