This is something different from what i usually post on this platform i have.
So coming from a Dogra Rajput family , i have always been told about our Maharajas and other Warriors from our clan and for all us dogras ZORAWAR SINGH is the ultimate superhero.
But recently i came across some documentary on youtube which shows Zorawar singh ji as a sikh.The uploader is Dr. Sukhpreet Singh Udhoke.He is Sikh Historian.Then i was contacted by some Rajput brothers from punjab who currently live in Australia about the same.It came as a shock as the videos were uploaded in 2014 and there was almost no counter to his lies but then i found that there was very less material available about dogra history on internet.
Then i contacted descendant of Zorawar ji in reasi and talked to them about the same.They gave me some family info and assured all help possible from there side.Manu khajuria singh arranged some more documents from other historians in Jammu which proved to be very helpful.i went through GULABNAMA which is the history of Dogras and a comprehensive biography of Maharaja Gulab Singh in particular.There was no mention of Zorawar singh ji being a sikh.I went through a few other books and none mentioned the same as well.Then i emailed Dr udhoke about the same and his reply was “go through a book written by GS bal.My video is based on it.”
Now i had to go through another book to prove him wrong but i had to do it.There was no free version available and the only place i could check it was Library of patiala university.I planned to go there but while doing a bit of research i found that someone had managed to get the image of the very first page of the book that Dr udhoke mentioned.It was written in punjabi so i had to take help of My friends to translate it.
Below are points that i found during the little research i had to do :
