RĀM SIṄGH, a holy man maintaining a dharamsālā at Zahūrā, near Ṭāṇḍā, in Hoshiārpur district, assisted Bhāī Mahārāj Siṅgh, the leader of the anti-British rebellion of 1848-49, not only by lodging him and his followers in his dharamsālā but also introducing him to several influential men of the area. After the rebels' arrest towards the close of 1849, Rām Siṅgh too was detained at Lahore. He was later set free and permitted to proceed on pilgrimage to holy places, but his dharamsālā at Zahūrā was razed by the government by way of punishment.
