Sarmad was very sensitive. Strength of his sentiments had made him a poet and depth of his feelings a mystic. That is what brought him closer to Prince Dara Shakoh.
After eliminating his brother Dara Shikoh, Mughal King Auragnzeb Alamgir turned towards his associates. Auragnzeb instructed Sarmad to do away with his viewpoints that to him were not right. Sarmad was very casual about his dress and was advised to take care of his attire. Sarmad did not bother.
Later, Auragnzeb sentenced Sarmad to death after acquiring a verdict from the Mullahs. When the Royal Police came to apprehend Sarmad for execution he ran in to the mosque.
“Stop there,” he ordered the soldiers who were following.
“Why,” asked the leading constable.
“Because I am out of the Mughal kingdom, go tell him,” he commanded.
But he was arrested and put to death.
This is very traumatic for people. There is nothing safer than the mosque for any one, provide the Owner of the house also wishes so.
This should be enough for human satisfaction.
