#London’s #Sikh community mark end of Chabeel week remembering martyr Guru Arjan Dev Ji who was burnt to death

Today, (Monday, June 6), marks the end of Chabeel week which is where the Sikh community across the world come together to remember Guru Arjan Dev Ji, who became a martyr after being burned alive by India’s mughal emperor of the time. Londoners paid their tribute by serving cool drinks to mark the week, the word Chabeel is the name of a non-alcoholic rose-milk drink but also refers to the Sikh practice of serving cool refreshments to the public in summer.
