Bhagat Singh

Bhagat Singh was born on 27th of September in the year of 1907 to a simple but patriotic Sikh family of Jalandhar. One of the famous Jalandhar people, Bhagat Singh is still remembered for his selfless sacrifice for the nation.

A revolutionary who dreamt of free India, Bhagat Singh had motivated several youths to join him in the Indian Freedom Struggle. The Ghadar Movement had made a firm impression on his tender mind and soul.

Bhagat Singh was moved by the Jallianwala Bagh episode on the 13th of April, 1919. Educated in the famous D.A.V school in Lahore, Bhagat Singh was motivated by the revolutionary ideas. A man of letters, Bhagat Singh established the Hindustan Socialist Republican Army along with Chandrasekhar Azad, Rajguru and Sukhdev.

Bhagat Singh, along with his friend Rajguru, was charged with a conspiracy to kill Mr Saunders, who was a member of the Simon Commission. Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev opposed the introduction of the Public Safety Bill and Trade Union Dispute Bill. They showed their disapproval by bombing the Legislative Assembly. The British Government arrested the trio on the heinous charge of attempt to murder and passed the judgment of hang unto death.

Bhagat Singh, along with Rajguru and Sukhdev were hanged on the 23rd of March, 1931 against public approval. With their death came the end of the saga of the heroes of Indian freedom struggle. Bhagat Singh instilled in the minds of the youth a burning desire to free their motherland from the hands of foreign rule.
