As a personal friend of Commander Mun`im Khan, he was present in the Mughal army at the battle of Lohgarh against Banda Singh Bahadur. His account of the action, based upon personal observation/is of great historical value. He refers to the "spirit of martyrdom among the Sikhs." Delhi and its environs had been so terrorized by the news of Banda Singh`s victories that Emperor Bahadur Shah decided to march in person against him, declaring a holy war (jihad) upon the Sikhs. Banda Singh`s citadel was captured, though he himself escaped disguised as ajogi. An abridged English translation of the work by Jonathan Scott was published in 1786 in London.
