We remember today the Gadari Baba and great Saini Shaheed Chaudhary Harnam Singh Saini who was hanged on this date, March 16, in 1917 under third Lahore Conspiracy Case trial.

Today is 97th Barsi. Today we honour and remember his sacrifice for the motherland.

He underwent torture and brutal police abuse at the hands of colonial authorities but he did not betray any one of his revolutionary friends. He chose to be hanged rather than turn against his own people.

Parnam Shaheedan Noo!

Harnam Singh Saini was a notable Indian revolutionary who participated in Ghadar Conspiracy and was hanged by British colonial government on March 16, 1917 in Lahore for instigating revolt against the empire. He was tried under third Lahore Conspiracy Case trial.[1][2]

Harnam Singh Saini was son of Gopal Saini. He was resident of village Fatehgarh in district Hoshiarpur.[3][4]
Involvement in Ghadar Conspiracy[edit]

Ghadar di Gunj, an early Ghadarite compilation of nationalist and socialist literature, was banned in India in 1913.

Ghadar Newspaper (Urdu) Vol. 1, No. 22, March 24, 1914

Harnam Singh visited Canada and USA which were the breeding ground of Ghadar Conspiracy. He became an active member of Ghadar Party and participated in sedition.

Harnam Singh Saini was arrested in Batavia, a Dutch colony. Nothing incriminating was found on his person or on the ship Maverick in which he was travelling. In spite of this the Dutch authorities of Batavia heeded to the British request and handed him over to the Singapore police. He was taken to Calcutta and then to Lahore.[1][2]
Trial and execution[edit]

He was tried under Third Conspiracy Case at Lahore. The tribunal of this case consisted of Ellis, Major Frizelle, and Rai Bahadur Gopal Das Bhandari. The trial was held in Lahore Central Jail.[2]

The trial began on November 8, 1916 and ended on January 5, 1917. Harnam Singh Saini along with four other Ghadar revolutionaries, namely, Bhai Balwant Singh of Khurdpur, Babu Ram of Fatehgarh, Hafiz Abdullah of Jagraon and Dr. Arur Singh of Sanghwal, was charged with waging war against King Emperor and sentenced to death. Three other co-accused, namely, Karar Singh Nawan Chand, Fazal Din of Fategarh and Munsha Singh of Dukhi of Jandiala were given life imprisonment.[2][4]
Saini, along with four of his other Ghadar Party comrades, was executed on March 16, 1917.[1] All of their properties were also confiscated.[2]
