DUDDUN RAM, a saintly person of Pandori, in present day Amritsar district of the Punjab. He gave shelter in his dera at Pandori to some Sikh women and children when the Sikhs were being hounded out in 1817 Bk / AD 1760 by the joint forces of the subahs of Sirhind, Multan and Lahore under the orders of Ahmad Shah. A Niranjania informed the Mughal scouts, who searched the dera. As no Sikhs were apprehended inside the dera, Duddun Ram and his disciples were tortured, but they gave out nothing.
The informer thought that the Sikh women and children had taken refuge in the adjoining sugarcane fields. As the Sikhs were captured, Duddun Ram and some others went to Momin Khan, the Mughal chief, to request him to intercede on their behalf, but to no avail. Momin Khan took the captives to Patti where many other Sikh prisoners were being treated with much harshness.
