“Gandhi vang nahi charkhe chalaye asin,Khud aap charkhiyan te chade hoye aan, sir deke jitho di fees lagdi, asin ona schoola de pade hoye aan, nahi darpok ahinsa de pujaria vaang,asin khoon wich layian tariaan ne, sanu aven ni loki SARDAR kehnde, sir deke milia SARDARIA ne”
The name Shaheed-E-Azam S. Bhagat Singh is a name known to all. It is pity on our government who has tried to hide the reality from the generations after Independence. They have made our great heroes terrorists in books so that coming generations should not have much interest in reading about them.
Martyr Bhagat Singh was born on September 27, 1907 to Sardar Kishan Singh and Vidyavati in the Khatkar Kalan village near Banga of Layalpur in district of Punjab (now in pakistan. Bhagat Singh was a great freedom fighter. He played an important role to make India Independent.
Bhagat Singh grew up in a patriotic atmosphere as his father and uncle, were great freedom fighters and were put in jail many times by the British. His uncles, Ajit Singh and Swaran Singh, as well as his father were members of the Gadar Party, led by Kartar Singh Sarabha and Lala Har Dayal. Ajit Singh was forced to flee to Persia because of pending cases against him while Swaran Singh was hanged on December 19, 1927 for his involvement in the Kakori train robbery of 1925.
In his teenage years, Bhagat Singh started studying at the National College in Lahore, but ran away from home to escape early marriage, and became a member of the organization Naujawan Bharat Sabha (“Youth Society of India”).In the Naujawan Bharat Sabha, Singh and his fellow revolutionaries grew popular amongst the youth. He also joined the Hindustan Republican Association at the request of Professor Vidyalankar, which was then headed by Ram Prasad Bismil and Ashfaqulla Khan. Bhagat Singh’s revolutionary activities were carried out as a leader of this association. The capture and hanging of the main HRA Leaders also allowed him to be quickly promoted to higher ranks in the party.
To take revenge of Lala Lajpat Rai’s death, He along with other revolutionaries plotted Saunders murder. Then on April 8, 1929, he along with Batukeshwar Dutt threw bomb in the assembly in opposition to two acts. He could have easily escaped from assembly, but did not, to open people against imperialism. He had no fear of death.
He was charged of Assembly bombing, and then Saunders murder. He along with Rajguru and Sukhdev were executed on March 23, 1931. Bhagat Singh was cremated at Hussainiwala (Ferozepur) on banks of Sutlej River. Now at Hussainiwala, The Bhagat Singh Memorial commemorates freedom fighters of India.
