History

India is a great country. The history here has been very proud. This country has many such cultures inside itself, which has made it the country with the richest culture in the world. This country has also been the karmabhoomi of those heroes who have worked for this country without caring about their lives. Our heroes never backed down even after sacrificing their lives for their country. To make the country independent, the heroes of the country even sacrificed their lives. Even after independence, our brave soldiers put their lives at stake for our protection on the borders. According to the court order, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were to be hanged on March 24, 1931, around 8 in the morning. But on March 23, 1931, all three were hanged at around seven o’clock in the evening and the bodies were burnt overnight on the banks of the Sutlej river without giving them to relatives.

Due to the increasing popularity of Bhagat Singh and other revolutionaries and the revolt on 24 March, the British government hanged Bhagat Singh and others on 23 March itself. Actually, this whole incident happened because of the incident that shook the British rule of Indian revolutionaries. On 8 April 1929, a bomb was thrown in the ‘Central Assembly’ in protest against ‘Public Safety’ and ‘Trade Dispute Bill’ under the leadership of Chandrashekhar Azad. As soon as the bill was announced, Bhagat Singh threw a bomb. After this there was a period of arrest of the revolutionaries. Bhagat Singh and Batukeshwar Dutt got life imprisonment.
