THE EPIC STORY OF MEHR MUGAL
This epic story was composed in verse in the beginning of the nineteenth century. It depicts the decline of Muslim chieftains and the rise of Sikh groupings (Misls) in Punjab. After conquering Lahore, when Ranjit Sigh proceeded to the western districts of Punjab, Muslim chieftains resisted against Sikh army. This epic story helps us develop an insight into the historical and social situation of Punjab during early nineteenth century as well as the tradition of enmity and friendship among tribes of Jhang.
