Shah Mohammad

Shah Mohammad (1780-1862) was a Punjabi poet who lived during the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and is best known for Jangnama— a colossal work that gave an eyewitness account of the First Anglo-Sikh War that took place after the death of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

It was initially thought that Shah Mohammad was from Batala, a steel town in the Gurdaspur district.It took more than a century to establish that Shah Mohammad actually belonged to the border village of Wadala Veeram in the Amritsar district and not Batala.

It was Maula Baksh Kushta, a famous Punjabi critic, who also hailed from Wadala Veeram, who first pointed out that Shah Mohammad belonged to his own village.
