Information and Broadcasting Minister Arun Jaitley today released commemorative silver coin to mark the 300th Martyrdom Day of Banda Singh Bahadur.

Bahadur is considered to be first sovereign ruler of Punjab.

Releasing the coins manufactured in association with MMTC, Jaitley said there is a need to educate people about the rich history and tradition of Punjab including its leaders like Banda Singh Bahadur.

He also suggested Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee to make a documentary on the life and times of Banda Singh Bahadur.

The leader had sacrificed his life at the age of 46 to protect honour and tradition. He established his rule by defeating Mughals in 1710. Later in 1716, he was captured and executed by Mughals in Delhi.
