Bhagat Singh Birthday: Today, September 28, is the birth anniversary of Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh, who sacrificed his life for India’s freedom. Shaheed Bhagat Singh was born on September 28, 1907 in Baga in Laipur district of the pre-Partition Punjab province.
Bhagat Singh was among those who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of the country and shook the roots of British rule with his courage. Singh filled the hearts of the youth with passion for freedom. Bhagat Singh became disenchanted with non-violent ideology when Mahatma Gandhi announced the end of the Non-Cooperation Movement after the Chauri Chaura riots in 1922. He founded the Naujawan Bharat Sabha to strive for the independence of the country in 1926.
During the freedom movement, Bhagat Singh was punished for throwing a bomb in the Central Legislative Assembly then in Delhi on April 8, 1929. He was initially kept in a Delhi jail and later sent to Lahore. While in jail, Bhagat Singh wrote many letters and articles which influenced the youth and even today those documents are worth reading closely and taught in history.
In July 1928, an article by Bhagat Singh was published in Kirti newspaper. In this article, Bhagat Singh compared the views of leaders Subhash Chandra Bose and Jawaharlal Nehru. Through this article, Bhagat Singh gave a message to the youth that with whom should they go or who should be trusted more in the freedom struggle.
On the night of March 23, 1931, Bhagat Singh was hanged by the British on charges of conspiring with Sukhdev and Rajguru. It is believed the death penalty was fixed on the morning of March 24, but the government, fearing public outrage, hanged him at midnight.
