MAHIṄGĀ SIṄGH, BHĀĪ (d. 1921), one of the Nankāṇā Sāhib martyrs, was born in a potter's family of Lahuke in Amritsar district. He along with his parents, Bhāī Jhaṇḍā Siṅgh and Māī Bhāgo, migrated to Chakk No. 75 Lahuke in Lyallpur district when that area was colonized during the 1890's. He knew Urdu and Punjabi; he also learnt some Mahājānī (a script used traditionally by commercial classes) and became a postman. Later, he set up himself as a commission agent. In company with his friend Bhāī Naraiṇ Siṅgh, a pious Sikh, he had himself registered as a volunteer in the Gurdwārā Reform movement. A week before the Nankāṇā happening, he donated his house to the village Gurdwārā and joined the jathā of Bhāī Īshar Siṅgh Dhārovālī. All in the jathā were killed as they were trying to enter Gurdwārā Janam Asthān the following morning on 20 February 1921.
