  1. RAM Mohammed Singh Azad: This fact is mentioned in the book titled ” Shahid-e-Azam Udham Singh Ek Vyaktitav aur Krititav” written by Dr. Rajpal Singh ‘Raj’ and published by Siddharth Books, C-263 A, Chandan Sadan, Hardevpuri, Shahdra, Delhi-110093 on page 25. It is mentioned in BBC’s documentry on Udham Singh available on internet and Wikipedia and some other writings on Udham Singh available on internet. Of course his signatures as ” M.S.Azad” only are available on Svi’s Blog on internet.

  2. Sh S R Darapuri insists on the authenticity of the following, although we would rather go with the accepted view till convincing proof otherwise is accepted by all. For the acceptance or research into of which we request a mutually tolerant atmosphere and space.:ED.

    It may be added further that Udham Singh’s father originally belonged to Patiali village of Etah district of Uttar Pardesh who migrated to Punjab in 1880. His father Chuhar Ram belonged to Chamar sub caste but he got converted to Sikhism and adopted the name of Tehal singh. His mother Naraini Devi was also named as Harnam Kaur after conversion to Sikhism . These facts are mentioned in a book titled ” Etah Janpad ka Itihas” written by Sh. Chintamani Shukla” and quoted by Dr. Rajpal Singh ‘Raj’ in his book referred to above. It shows that Udham Singh belonged to Chamar subcaste of U.P. and he was not a Kamboj as claimed by some persons in Punjab. This fact is also mentioned in a book titled “Bharat me Samajik Parivartan ke Prernashrot” written by Sh. Mata Parsad Ex- Governor of Arunachal Pardesh. Another book titled ” Swantarta Sangram me Achhuton ka Yogdan’ written by D.C.Dinkar also corroborates these facts. I have mentioned these facts just to set the record straight. It may be mentioned that Patriots and Martyrs belong to whole nation and not to a particular caste. We should not divide them into castes. They are examples of sublime sacrifice.
