Explore how Rani Jind Kaur defied British dominance by forging alliances beyond Sikh circles in this enlightening video.


During the Second Anglo-Sikh War, Rani Jind Kaur recognized the need for a unified front against British colonialism, extending her reach beyond Sikh communities. In a pivotal letter to Raja Sher Singh, a leader of the Sikh rebellion, she emphasized the urgency of collective resistance among all South Asians. Her plea transcended religious and ethnic divides, urging Hindustanis from all walks of life to join the struggle for freedom.Remarkably, Rani Jind Kaur sought collaboration even with former adversaries. Despite historical enmity, she reached out to the Afghan and Kashmiri rulers, rallying them to defy British oppression. Witness the inspiring journey of Maharani Jind Kaur as she breaks barriers and cultivates solidarity across diverse communities in the pursuit of liberation from British control.
