HARNĀM SIṄGH, BHĀĪ (1901-1921), one of the Nankāṇā Sāhib martyrs, belonged to Chakk No. 38 Nizāmpur Devā Siṅghvālā, in Sheikhūpurā district, which contributed the maximum number of volunteers (15) from any single village to the corps of martyrs led by Bhāī Lachhmaṇ Siṅgh Dhārovālī for the liberation of Gurdwārā Janam Asthān.
Bhāī Harnām Siṅgh was born on 7 Magghar 1958 Bk/20 November 1901, the youngest son of Bhāī Īshar Siṅgh and Māī Bhāgo. Of medium height and stoutly build, he excelled in rural sports such as weightlifting and wrestling. He however gave up the latter sport after imbibing the Khālsā pāhul to keep his vows inviolate. His presence at the reformists' dīvān held at Dhārovālī on 1-3 October 1920 proved a turning point in his life and he plunged himself into the Gurdwārā Reform movement with all his energy. He participated in the liberation of Gurdwārā Kharā Saudā. As the call came from Nankāṇā Sāhib, young Harnām Siṅgh did not tarry a single day and forthwith joined the jathā of Bhāī Lachhmaṇ Siṅgh of Dhārovālī. He consoled his distraught mother with the words that she had two other sons in the family. The jathā was massacred to a man by the killers on 20 February 1921.
