Rām Rāi (17th cent. CE). Son of Sikh Gurū Har Rāi. Rām Rāi is regarded as an apostate. He incurred his father's displeasure by changing one of Gurū Nānak's lines in the Ādi Granth to satisfy emperor Auraṅgzeb at whose court he was detained. Rām Rāi disputed the succession of his younger brother Har Krishan and great-uncle Tegh Bahādur. His followers, the Rāmrāiyās, were hostile to subsequent Gurūs and their disciples.
