On the opening of the Lower Chenāb Canal Colony, the family migrated in 1897 to Chakk No. 91 Dhannuāṇā in Lyallpur (now Faisalābād) district, in Pakistan. Harī Siṅgh enlisted in the 36th Sikh Battalion where he took the Khālsā pāhul and fought in the World War, 1914-18. A bullet wound tore apart his foot, incapacitating him. He was discharged with a pension of Rs 6 per month. Following the example of Jathedār Sundar Siṅgh of his own village, he joined the jathā of Bhāī Lachhmaṇ Siṅgh of Dhārovālī and attained martyrdom inside Gurdwārā Janam Asthān, Nankāṇā Sāhib, on 20 February 1921. The martyr's mother was granted a pension of Rs 115 per annum by the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee of Amritsar.
