Dharam Singh Hayatpur (or Hiatpur) (1884 – 27 February 1926)[1] was a prominent member of the Sikh political and religious group the Babbar Akali Movement in India. In 1926 a British imperial Sessions Court sentenced him to life imprisonment for his activities, but this sentence was increased on appeal by the High Court and he was hanged.[2] Dharam Singh Hayatpur and five other men's struggle influenced Bhagat Singh in writing his article, "Blood Sprinkled on the Day of Holi Babbar Akalis on the Crucifix"[3] which shows admiration for the men and highlights their cause.
