Chandigarh, September 10

Stirring the caste and religious pot for electoral gains in the upcoming Assembly elections, the Akali-BJP government has tried to woo their majority vote bank of Sikhs by approving the draft of Punjab Anand Marriage Rules, and is once again flirting with the Saini and Swarankar communities by including them in the Backward Classes.

These decisions were taken in the Punjab Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today. The government also announced a slew of concessions to the poor among the above mentioned communities. These include 15 per cent reservation in jobs as well as in educational institutions; scholarships and stipend meant for BCs; and free domestic power supply of up to 200 units a month.

(Follow The Tribune on Facebook; and Twitter @thetribunechd)

The benefits will only be given to those Saini and Swarankar families whose annual income is less than Rs8 lakh per annum. There are 69 castes in the Backward Classes which constitute 22 per cent of the state's population. Sainis constitute 9 per cent of the population mostly settled in Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur, Anandpur Sahib and Patiala.

A few years ago, the Jats, the dominant community in Punjab, too had raised the demand for getting the Backward Class status, which was also approved by the Cabinet, but its notification has not yet been done.

Brahmin Sabha’s general secretary Bihari Lal Saddi has already started raising demand for the grant of similar benefits to the 40-lakh Brahmin population in the state, claiming that they be declared a minority.

Meanwhile, the government has also decided to allot 5-marla plots to landless people in villages on the village common land (Jumla Mustarka Maalkaan) by amending the East Punjab Holdings (Consolidation and Prevention of Fragmentation) Act, 1948.

The Punjab Anand Marriage Rules ensure that Sikh marriages registered under the Anand Marriage Act need not be registered again under the Punjab Compulsory Registration of Marriages Act. This has been a long standing demand of the Sikhs – a major vote bank of the Panthic party.

The government also amended the Punjab Minor Mineral Rules that makes the stone crusher policy to regulate the working of crushers and control the prices of sand and aggregate legally tenable.

Another meeting tomorrow

With several bills to be introduced in the ongoing Vidhan Sabha session not yet ready, the government has convened another Cabinet meeting on Monday. These bills will be approved by the Cabinet before being presented in the House.

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
Born Fategarh village, Hoshiarpur, Punjab
Died March 16, 1917
Lahore, British India
Organization Ghadar Party
Political movement
Indian Independence movement, Ghadar Conspiracy

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]

Chaudhary Ji. Thank you for this information. Very good.

Few academic facts need to clarified here because some people wittingly or unwittingly try to exploit our ignorance.

1) Krishan Ji Maharaj , his father Vasudev Maharaj and his grandfather , Maharaja Shoorsen were not "gwalas". They were kings , born in the royal line of Yadu. From Maharaja Shoorsen a new Yadava dynasty started called Shoorsaini and Sainis and a few other Rajput tribes are their legitimate representatives.

2) Krishna spent his childhood among gwalas to escape oppression of Kans. He was there put in hiding by his father in the home of his friend. Nand Baba, Krishan Maharaj's foster father, who was very well respected in his time as the chief of Gopas or Gwalas , was not of Yadava birth. You can check Mahabharta and Bhagvata Puranas in the original text. Krishna had no blood ties with him or his foster mother Yashoda, although both are honorable and saintly figures.

3) Krishna did not live among 'gwalas' after the age of 12 when he killed Kans. Nor did any of his descendants establish any matrimonial links with them. They were always conscious of their royal status.

4) Only a very small section of communities which currently go under the caste name of "Yadav" have any link with the Yadavas or Shoorsainis mentioned in Puranas and history text. A very large number of modern day ahirs or gwala community have no blood link with Yadavas mentioned in Mahabharata

5) In 1924 , Ahir and Gawli groups adopted the caste name of "Yadava" as part of Sanskritization movement. Prior to 1924 only a small section of Ahirs were considered to be linked with Yadavas.

6) Ahir tribe, assuming its a distortion of "Abhira", is not a Yadava tribe though it was considered to be of royal status. This is clearly stated in Mahabharata. Mahabharata clearly mentions them as separate from Yadavas/Shoorsainis.

7) Over a period of time Ahir community got assimilated with "gwalas" among whom Krishna worship was very popular. Finally, in 1924 they formally changed their identity to "Yadav" just like Malis changed their identity to "Saini" in 1931 to claim army quotas for martial castes.

People who are extending theories that Sainis are "Gole" or "Gwale" (same as modern "Yadav" community) do not know any history of identity politics before 1920s . They are generalizing on the basis of post 1924 caste names and political configurations. Their speculation have no historical or textual basis and they are factually wrong.

Apart from Sainis of Punjab legitimate claimants as blood descendants of Krishna are found among Jadubansi Meos, Tomar and Bhati Rajputs, Sidhu Jats of Patiala, Sinsinwar Jats of Bharatpur, Jadeja and Sameja Rajputs. Some of these groups converted to Islam and are now found in Pakistan. Among the Malis, only Rajput Malis of Tomar and Bhati clans can claim any legitimate link with Krishna. Among Ahirs, only Jadubansi Ahirs can make this claim with any credibility although all call themselves "Yadav" now.

Hello Friends,

There is a new bestseller novel involving Sainis of Punjab and tracing their origin from Lord Krishna. The new novel is called "Krishna Key" (Author: Ashwini Sanghi) . The hero of the novel is also a Saini professor from Punjab. You can get it from if it is not available in your local store:

There is an excerpt and some more information about it.

"How so?' asked Priya. 'Krishna's grandfather was Shurasena, and some of his tribe came to be known as the Shainyas. Over several generations, the Shainyas eventually settled in the Punjab and came to be known as Sainis."

-The Krishna Key, Chapters 46-47 ,The Krishna Key , Sanghi, Ashwin, Westland Publishers 2012

The Krishna Key centres around Ravi Mohan Saini, the protagonist and a historian who has been accused of the murder of his childhood friend Anil Varshney. In an attempt to clear his name, Saini looks into the past of Indian Mythology's grey areas and uncover the truth about a serial killer who believes himself to be Kalki, the final avatar of Lord Vishnu. Saini travels from the ancient ruins of the Lost City of Dwaraka to Vrindavan temples in an attempt to discover one of Krishna's treasures and stop the killer from murdering his friends who are also under the threat.

The plot involves different pieces of the seal which must be brought together to solve the puzzle. Each part of the seal is in the possession of four different people who are descendants of Yadava tribes. The tribes are Saini, Satvat, Varshney and Chhedi. The author narrates a detailed version of the post-Mahabharatha history through the protagonist, a distinguished professor of history, who himself happens to be a lineal descendant of Krishna being from Saini tribe of Punjab. The book also contains the author's version of the Krishna Avatar at the start of each chapter from the birth to the death of Vishnu's 8th Avatar.
