bhagat Singh
.Born: September 27, 1907
Passed Away: March 23, 1931
Contributions
BhagatSinghBhagat Singh was among the prominent revolutionaries who shaped the base of a grand
national movement. Following his execution, on March 23, 1931, the supporters and followers of Bhagat
Singh regarded him as a "Shaheed", "martyr".

Life
Bhagat Singh was born on 27 September 1907 at Banga in Lyallpur district (now Pakistan) to Kishan
Singh and VidyaVati. From his early childhood, Bhagat Singh was imbued with the family's spirit of
patriotism. At the time of his birth, his father Kishan Singh was in jail. His uncle, SardarAjit Singh, was a
great freedom fighter and established the Indian Patriots' Association. He was well-supported by his
friend Syed HaidarRaza, in organizing the peasants against the Chenab Canal Colony Bill. Ajit Singh had
22 cases against him and was forced to flee to Iran. Bhagat Singh was considered to be one of the most
influential revolutionaries of Indian Nationalist Movement. He became involved with numerous
revolutionary organizations.

Kishan Singh enrolled Bhagat Singh in Dayanand Anglo Vedic High School. At a very young age, Bhagat
Singh started following Non-Cooperation Movement called by Mahatma Gandhi. Bhagat Singh had openly
defied the British and had followed Gandhi's wishes by burning the government-sponsored books.
Following the violent incidents of "ChauriChaura", Gandhi called for the withdrawal of the Non-
Cooperation movement. Unhappy with the decision, Bhagat Singh, isolated himself from Gandhi's
nonviolent action and joined the Young Revolutionary Movement.

He was pursuing B.A. examination when his parents planned to have him married. He vehemently
rejected the suggestion and said that, if his marriage was to take place in Slave-India, my bride shall be
only death." Singh later joined the Hindustan Republican Association, a radical group, later known as the
Hindustan Socialist Republican Association. He returned to his home in Lahore after assurances from his
parents that he would not be compelled to get married. He established contact with the members of the
KirtiKisan Party and started contributing regularly to its magazine, the "Kirti". In March 1926, the
Naujawan Bharat Sabha was formed with Bhagat Singh, as its secretary.

On 30 October 1928, an all-parties procession, led by LalaLajpatRai, marched towards the Lahore railway
station to protest against the arrival of the Simon Commission. Stopping the procession, police made a
lathi charge at the activists. The confrontation left LalaLajpatRai with severe injuries and also led to his
death. As an avenge to the death of LalaLajpatRai, Bhagat Singh and his associates plotted the
assassination of Scott, the Superintendent of Police, believed to have ordered the lathi charge. The
revolutionaries, mistaking J.P. Saunders, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, as Scott, killed him
instead. Bhagat Singh quickly left Lahore to escape his arrest. To avoid recognition, he shaved his beard
and cut his hair, a violation of the sacred tenets of Sikhism.
ShaheedBhagat Singh
In response to the formulation of Defence of India Act, the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association
planned to explode a bomb inside the assembly premises, where the ordinance was going to be passed.
On April 8 1929 Bhagat Singh and BatukeshwarDutt threw a bomb onto the corridors of the assembly
and shouted 'InquilabZindabad!' The bomb was not meant to kill or injure anyone and therefore it was
thrown away from the crowded place. Following the blasts both Bhagat Singh and BatukeshwarDutt
courted arrest

Trial and Death


The British authority, while interrogating them, came to know about their involvement in the murder of J.
P. Saunders. Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, and Sukhdev were charged with the murder. Singh admitted to the
murder and made statements against the British rule during the trial.

While in jail, Bhagat Singh found that the authorities were following a dual policy in treating the
prisoners. The criminals of foreign origin were treated better than Indian political prisoners. As a protest,
he along with some fellow prisoners declared to "go on hunger strike". The strike continued for over a
month and finally the British had to accept before their conditions.

Bhagat Singh along with other revolutionaries found responsible for the Assembly bombing and murder
of Saunders. On March 23, 1931, Bhagat Singh was hanged in Lahore with his fellow comrades Rajguru
and Sukhdev. Singh was cremated at Hussainiwala on banks of Sutlej riverAdd a caption
