Ram Rai : –

After the demise of Shah Jahan, the mentality of the state headed by Aurangzeb towards the non-muslims, turned to threaten.

Baba Ram Rai Ji appeared in the interest of Guru Sahib in the court.

He attempted to clear up a few misunderstandings with respect to Guru Ghar and Sikh confidence, made by Dhirmals and Minas. However another trap, which he couldn’t get away, was to illuminate the significance of the refrain “The Ashes of the Mohammadan fall into the potter’s coagulation, it is formed into pots and blocks, and they shout out as they consume”.

Baba Ram Rai with a specific end goal to satisfy the sovereign and pick up his sensitivity contorted Gurbani. At the point when Guru Har Rai Ji was educated about this occurrence, he promptly banished Ram Rai Ji from the Sikh Panth and never met him, through the later argued more than once for pardoning.
