    • The Punjab government Wednesday constituted a 15 member joint action committee under the Chairmanship of Dr Manmohan Singh Bhagowalia to mobilize masses from the state for the state level function on 14 February, 2010, to commemorate the Martyrdom day of Baba Moti Ram Mehra, an unsung hero of Sikh History.

      He was a relatively unknown servant in the Hindu kitchen of Sirhind Faujdar, who sacrificed his whole family to serve milk to the Sahibzadas and Mata Gujri during their imprisonment.

    • He said that humanity was indebted to Baba Moti Ram Mehra, his wife Bibi Bholi ji and his mother who despite the diktat of Wazir Khan, issuing strict warning the residents of Sirhind, not to serve any type of food to Sahibjadas of tenth Guru, dared to sneak in the prison chamber, to serve fresh water and milk to hungry Sahibzadas and Mata Gujri ji for three consecutive nights. The Minister said that when this came to the notice of Sirhind Faujdar, after the martyrdom of Sahibzadas, the whole family of Baba Moti Ram Mehra including his mother, wife and seven year old son were done to death by squeezing them in Kohlu (oil press).
