Ram Raayias, a heretic group from the Payal region of Ludhiana are known to be the first among the attackers on recitation of hymns of Dasam Granth when they physically assaulted a 'raagi' who was reciting Chaupai Sahib (a Dasam Granth Baani) in congregation. Ram Raiya sect was initiated by Masands of Ram Rai who was excommunicated by Guru Har Rai for changing the meanings and lines of Nanakvani while having discussion with officials of centre government at Delhi. Later, Ram Rai settled at Dehradoon and people who follow him are known as Ram Rayias.

Incident

In Paayal Pur Ghudarni village, When Ragi Bulaki Singh read Rehraas in Sangat and read Chopai bani of tenth guru then Ram Raiyas abused him and Guru Gobind Singh and beat him too. Moreover they break musical instrument(saranda) he had with him. [1][2] In Shamsher Khalsa, Giani Gian Singh covers the incident as follows:

ਏਸ ਸਮੇ ਇਕ ਬੁਲਾਕੀ ਸਿੰਘ ਮਸ਼ਹੂਰ ਰਾਗੀ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੇ ਬੰਦੇ ਪਾਸ ਸਿੰਘਾਂ ਦੇ ਦੀਵਾਨ ਵਿਚ ਆ ਕੇ ਫਰਿਆਦ ਕੀਤੀ ਤਲਕੇ ਪਾਇਲ ਘੁੜਾਣੀ ਪਿੰਡ ਵਿਚ ਠੈਹਰ ਕੇ ਜਦ ਮੈਂ ਰਹੁਰਾਸ ਪੜਦੇ ਹੋਏ ਨੇ ਦਸਮ ਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਦੀ ਚੋਪਈ ਪੜ੍ਹੀ ਤਾਂ ਉਥੋਂ ਦੇ ਰਾਮਰਈਏ ਲੋਗਾਂ ਨੇ ਦਸਮੇ ਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਦੀ ਬਾਨੀ ਪੜ੍ਹਨੇ ਬਦਲੇ ਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਨੂੰ ਭੀ ਗਾਲਿਆਂ ਦਿੱਤੀਆਂ ਤੇ ਮੈਨੂੰ ਭੀ ਮਾਰਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਮੇਰਾ ਸਰੰਦਾ ਭੀ ਭੰਨ ਦਿੱਤਾ, ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਸਿਖਿਆ ਦੇਣੀ ਚਾਹੀਦੀ ਹੈ ? ਇਹ ਗੱਲ ਸੁੰਨ ਕੇ ਸਿੰਘਾਂ ਨੇ ਬੰਦੇ ਨੂੰ ਨਾਲ ਲੇਕਰ ਪਾਇਲ ਪਰ ਚੜ੍ਹਾਈ ਕਰ ਦਿੱਤੀ, ਪਾਇਲ ਨੂੰ ਲੁੱਟ ਮਾਰ ਕੇ ਰਾਮਰਾਇਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਬਹੁਤ ਸਜਾਏ ਦਿੱਤੀ ਤੇ ਬੁਲਾਕਾ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੂੰ ਉਥੇ ਦਾ ਥਾਨੇਦਾਰ ਕਰ ਕੇ ਆਪ ਇਕ ਦਸਤਾ ਫੌਜ ਅਤੇ ਕੁਝ ਤੋਪਾਂ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਮਲੇਰ ਕੋਟਲੇ ਕੀ ਤਰਫ਼ ਕੂਚ ਕਰ ਦਿੱਤਾ ।

Information to Khalsa Army

Bhai Balakee Singh Ji described an incident at Payal where he was reciting Sri Dasam Guru Sahib Ji’s Chaupai Sahib during Rehras, and the heretical Ramrai Masands physically attacked him and broke his stringed musical instrument known an a Saranda, and began to make derogatory remarks against Guru Sahib Ji also. Should they be taught a lesson, asked Bhai Balakee Singh Ji? [2]

Aftermath

Upon hearing the complaint of the vicious attack on Guru Sahib, His Dasam Bani, His beloved Kirtanis, the Khalsa Fauj along with Baba Banda Sahib Bahadur set for and laid siege and plundered the town of Payal, and gave the Ramrai Masands the harshest punishment for their blasphemous actions.

The Khalsa Army then installed Bhai Balakee Singh Ji as the Chief Khalsa Constable for the Payal, and set forth to the town of Malerkotla with their armaments.

Khalsa always regard Guru Gobind Singh's Bani and added it to daily liturgy.
