The nation celebrates the birthday of freedom fighter Bhagat Singh on Tuesday. Singh, a revolutionary socialist, played a crucial role during the Indian freedom struggle.
Bhagat Singh with his other companions Rajguru, Chandrashekhar Azad, Sukhdev and Jai Gopal took revenge for the assassination of Lala Lajpat Rai.
On April 8, 1929, Bhagat Singh along with his mates threw bombs at the Central Legislative Assembly and later, instead of escaping, stayed put shouting ‘Inquilab Zindabad’.
Deputy Superintendent of Police J P Saunders was assassinated and the three revolutionaries were jailed with murder charges and on March 23, 1931 they were hanged till death.
On his birth anniversary, Newsd shares Bhagat Singh’s inspirational quotes which still inspire the youth of modern India.
“Every tiny molecule of Ash is in motion with my heat I am such a lunatic that I am free even in Jail.”
‘Inquilab Zindabad!” (Long Live the Revolution).
“Life is to live its own..others help is needed in funerals only.”
“Any man who stands for progress has to criticise, disbelieve and challenge every item of the old faith.”
“By crushing individuals, they cannot kill ideas.”
