Gurdwara Sri Chota Ghalughara Sahib marks the location, where the Chota Ghalughara began in 1746, where a third of the Sikh population was exterminated by muslims.
The first Chota Ghallughara was a dramatic and bloody massacre during the campaign of Afghanistan's (Durrani Empire) provincial government based at Lahore to wipe out the Sikhs, an offensive that had begun with the mughals and lasted several decades.
Sikhism began in the days of Guru Nanak (1469–1539) and grew to be a distinctive social force especially after the formation of the Order of Khalsa in 1699. The Khalsa was designated to oppose the tyranny of the Mughal Empire and any other form of injustice. Through much of the early eighteenth century, the Khalsa was outlawed by the government and survived in the safety of remote forests, deserts, and swamplands of the Punjab region and neighbouring Kashmir and Rajasthan.
Muslims wanted to exterminate Sikhs in mass killings and genocides because they couldn't control Sikhs like they could with hindus.
