RAM SINGH, a holy man maintaining a dharamsala at Zahura, near Tanda, in Hoshiarpur district, assisted Bhai Maharaj Singh, the leader of the anti British rebellion of 1848-49, not only by lodging him and his followers in his dharamsala but also introducing him to several influential men of the area. After the rebels` arrest towards the close of 1849, Ram Singh too was detained at Lahore. He was later set free and permitted to proceed on pilgrimage to holy places, but his dharamsala at Zahura was razed by the government by way of punishment.
