REMEMBERING BHAGAT SINGH JI,RAJGURU AND SUKHDEV ON THEIR SHAHEED DIVAS .PATRIOTISM WAS IN THEIR VEINS, THEY SACRIFICED EVERYTHING AT SUCH YOUNG AGE FOR OUR NATION.
When Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were hanged to death
Legendary freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru were hanged to death on this day by the British regime 91 years ago. The day is observed as Shaheed Diwas to honour the revolutionaries.
The three young men were hanged at the Lahore Central Jail in Lahore on March 23, 1931. While Bhagat Singh was just 23, his comrades Rajguru and Sukhdev too were in their early twenties, 22 and 23 respectively. Their bodies were secretly cremated in the banks of the Sutlej river.
They were found guilty of the murder of British police officer JP Saunders in December 1928, in response to the death of freedom fighter Lala Lajpat Rai a month before that.
The trial that eventually led to the hanging of the trio was called the Lahore Conspiracy Case.
Bhagat Singh’s acts of dramatic violence against the British in India and execution made him a folk hero of the Indian Independence movement. He was born on September 28, 1907 in Banga village of Punjab province of pre-partition India.
Bhagat Singh was born in Lyallpur in Punjab province (now in Pakistan) on September 28, 1907.As a young revolutionary, he was hanged to death along with Rajguru and Sukhdev on March 23, 1931.
Rajguru was born in Khed in present-day Maharashtra’s Pune district. The town was renamed Rajgurunagar in his honour.
Sukhdev was born in Punjab’s Ludhiana. A prominent member of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association (HSRA), he took part in numerous revolutionary activities and events.
On Shaheed Diwas this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Biplobi Bharat Gallery, which displays the contribution of the revolutionaries in the freedom struggle, in Kolkata via video conferencing. Punjab’s new Chief Minister, Bhagwant Mann, has declared the day as a public holiday in the state.
Her contribution to Indian society in the form of writing biography of the family and preserving and publishing Bhagat Singh’s writings will live long. She has not been given due credit for her own immense contribution in the form of her authentic writings.
In 1967, she had proclaimed Bhagat Singh as a socialist revolutionary and highlighted how Soviet leaders were so impressed with his personality that they had invited him to visit the Soviet Union and get trained in Marxism in the University of the Toilers of the East, for Afro-Asian anti-colonial liberation fighters.
No government functionary from any state or the Union government has issued even a tweet on Virender Sindhu passing away. Some close family members, but not all, were present in the funeral procession in UK.
PATRIOTISM WAS IN THEIR VEINS, THEY SACRIFICED EVERYTHING AT SUCH YOUNG AGE FOR OUR NATION.
