The real reason for this steriotype comes from Nadir Shah's invasion of India. His troops passed through Punjab after plundering Delhi and killing thousands of Hindus and Muslims , and taking hundreds of Hindu women as captive. The Sikhs decided to attack Nadir Shah's camp and free the captive women. Being outnumbered by Nadir Shah's huge army, they could not afford to make a frontal attack. Instead, they used to make guerrilla raids on Nadir Shah's camp during midnights, free as many captive women as possible, and return them to their homes in order to "restore the diginity of the Hindu community".
