Gateway to Sikhism

Dharam Singh, Bhai
One of the Nankana Sahib Martyrs (D. 1921)

Was the youngest of the four sons of Bhai Sant Singh and Mai Hukmi, of the village of Bundala, in Amritsar district. He was only four years old when the family migrated to Chakk No. 71 Bundala Bachan Siiighvala in the newly colonized district of Lyallpur. His education was limited to rudimentary knowledge of the Punjabi language which he could barely read in the Gurmukhi script. He was robustly built and enjoyed wrestling.

He married and was the father of four, two sons and two daughters, at the advent of the Gurdwara reform movement. Dharam Singh and his elder brother, Ichchhar Singh, offered themselves as volunteers for the liberation of Gurdwara Janam Asthan at Nankana Sahib. Preparations for the marriage of their nephew were in hand when the call came. Both left at once and joined the Dharovall column which was massacred to a man by the hired assassins of Narain Das, the Mahant, on 20 February 1921.

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
