Abstract

Hew McLeod's work on martyrdom in the Sikh tradition is minimal, although an understanding of the phenomenom may be pieced together from his collected works. It may thus be seen as inevitable that his doctoral students have ventured so prolificly into this terrain, particularly evinced by their keen interest and examinations of the execution of the first martyr of the Sikh tradition, Guru Arjan (d. 1606 CE), the compiler of the Adi Granth and its principal contributor. This paper examines and contrasts general claims regarding Sikh martyrdom made by all three scholars and specific ones about Guru Arjan's death.
