Baba Ram Singh ji was one of the most trusted associates of Baba Maharaj Singh ji. During the struggle with the British Government, Baba Maharaj Singh ji used to visit his Dera (place) quite often in routine.
Baba Ram Singh ji kept inspiring his close ones and disciples to cooperate with Baba Maharaj Singh ji. Baba Maharaj Singh ji had entrusted him the task of freeing Maharaja Daleep Singh from the clutches of the British, though unfortunately that task could not be accomplished.
With the arrest and martyrdom of Baba Maharaj Singh Ji, the efforts to keep the candle (issue) of Khalsa State burning came almost to an end.
Some of the Sikh chiefs came under the spell of British, few accepted jagir (estate and other benefits) while others got ready to serve them. Fighters like Baba Bikram Singh ji Bedi, moth to a flame, remained locked in the jail cell.
Rani Jind Kaur, beloved of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, a victim of unbearable and indescribable humiliation was exiled. The heir to the throne of Lahore, her son Daleep Singh, was snatched from her and left at the mercy of British babysitters and caretakers.
It was a great tragedy for the entire Sikh community to have the Kingdom of thousands of miles including the Kohinoor diamond and the entire wealth of treasury of Lahore got gifted in the name of Queen Victoria, from the innocent and minor Daleep Singh.
For Maharaja Daleep Singh, it was gross injustice and brutal deception by the British – who always boasted of justice.
It was a daylight robbery on the rights of minor Maharaja, which time will never forgive.
Although he (Baba Ram Singh ji) remained active during the struggle under the patronage of Baba Maharaj Singh ji but after his martyrdom, he constrained his activities.
Because his arrest warrant had been issued by the British Government, he did not keep a permanent location. He used to visit Zahura and Naurangabad Dera from time to time, which is why ‘Naurangabad’ remained associated with his name in spite of his living in a dispassionate style.
Even in those circumstances, he like other saints of this Spiritual Lineage, continued the service of doing Amrit Sanchar.
