BIRTH ANNIVERSARY OF SHAHEED BHAGAT SINGH

BIRTH ANNIVERSARY OF SHAHEED BHAGAT SINGH

About Bhagat Singh

  • He was born on September 28, 1907 in Punjab province, now in Pakistan.
  • He quit school at thirteen to devote his life to Indian independence.
  • He enrolled in the National College at Lahore, where he studied European revolutionary movements.
  • In 1926, Bhagat Singh founded the 'Naujavan Bharat Sabha (Youth Society of India) and joined the Hindustan Republican Association (later known as Hindustan Socialist Republican Association).
  • The death of Sher-i-Punjab Lala  Lajpat Rai due to lathi blows received during a lathi- charge  on an anti-Simon Commission procession (October 1928)  led them once again to take to individual assassination. Bhagat  Singh, Azad and Rajguru shot Saunders, the police  official responsible for the lathicharge in Lahore.
  • In April 1929, Bhagat Singh and an associate bombed the Central Legislative Assembly in Delhi to protest implementation of the Public Safety Bill.
  • The bombs  had been deliberately made harmless and were aimed at  making ‘the deaf hear’.
  • The objective was to get arrested and  to use the trial court as a forum for propaganda so that people  would become familiar with their movement and ideology.
