BATTHA, BHAI, was a masand or local leader heading the Sikh congregation at Pattan Shaikh Farid, better known as Pakpattan, in Montgomery (now Sahival) district of Pakistan, during the time of Guru Har Krishan and Guru Tegh Bahadur. As is evident from a number of bukamnamas or edicts issued by the Gurus to the sangat of Pakpattan, Bhai Battha was a prominent Sikh of his time.
