Tributes Pour In On Shaheed Diwas: On the death anniversary of the iconic freedom fighters, tributes have started pouring in. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the spirit of sacrificing their lives for the motherland will always inspire India.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted in Hindi on Martyrs’ Day, saluting Veer Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru, the immortal sons of Bharat Mata. Their spirit of sacrificing their lives for the motherland will always inspire the countrymen. Jai Hind!
Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, and Sukhdev were hanged to death on March 23, 1931, in the Lahore Conspiracy case.
Amit Shah, the home minister of India, tweeted that the patriotism of three individuals- Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Sardar Patel- aroused the spirit of freedom during foreign rule and continues to inspire every Indian today.
Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party’s national convener Arvind Kejriwal wrote, “On the martyrdom day of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru, the immortal symbols of the country’s freedom movement, I bow to them. Every countryman will forever be indebted to the immortal sacrifice of these heroes of the country.”
Rahul Gandhi, a leader in the Indian Congress party, said that three revolutionaries-Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru-will remain forever remembered.
Whenever someone speaks out against injustice, they will be inextricably linked with the martyrs of history.
Manish Tewari, a Congress MP from Chandigarh, reiterated his demand for renaming the city’s international airport after Shaheed Bhagat Singh. He urged Punjab chief minister Bhagwant Mann to lend support to his “36-month long quest” and asked home minister Amit Shah to use his “veto with Haryana”.
In December 1928, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru plotted the assassination of the British officer James Scott in Lahore to avenge the death of Lala Lajpat Rai. In a case of mistaken identity, assistant superintendent of police John Saunders was shot dead. The three freedom fighters were hanged to death on March 23, 1931.
