Bhagat Singh is one of the greatest revolutionaries and freedom fighters who were born on 28 September 1907. He was born at Lyallpur, western Punjab, India (now in Pakistan).

Bhagat Singh became a part of the Indian Independence movement at a very young age. He gave his life for the country when he was just 23 years old. A man of freedom and who sacrificed himself for the motherland with a smile. Today, the 112th birth anniversary of the great freedom fighter of India Bhagat Singh is being celebrated across the country. With his exploits, thoughts, and personality, Bhagat Singh still holds a different place in the hearts of the youth of the country.

When Bhagat Singh was in jail, he had fasted for 116 days. Despite being on fast, he used to complete his daily tasks like reading, writing books, visiting court every day and even singing. The popular patriotic slogan ‘Inquilab Zindabad’ was coined by Singh, which later became the freedom movement’s calling.

He participated in various acts of resistance against British rule in India, he also contributed as a writer and editor for Punjabi and Urdu language newspapers. His revolutionary ideas were becoming extremely popular during the freedom struggle, which was seen as a threat by the empire. In the end, the British sentenced him to death along with his fellow revolutionaries, Rajguru and Sukhdev, and disposed off their bodies secretly. This move by the empire made these young freedom fighters even more popular and their names, never dying.

It is believed that the execution of the death sentence was fixed on the morning of March 24, but fearing public anger, the government hanged itself on the midnight of 23-24 March.

They were hanged for the murder of British police officer JP Saunders.

This year, India will celebrate its 114th birth anniversary.

Bhagat Singh words “They may kill me, but they cannot kill my ideas. They can crush my body, but they will not be able to crush my spirit.”
