Shaheed Baghat Singh Life
On September 27, 1907, Bhagat Singh was born at Lyallpur, which lies in western Punjab, India. But, now that area is situated in Pakistan. He died on March 23, 1931, in Lahore(Pakistan) by execution at the age of 23, along with his associates Rajguru and Sukhdev. He is also called the revolutionary hero of the Indian independence movement because he struggled for freedom.
Now. Let’s discuss the shaheed Baghat Singh life story. He was a student at Dayanand Anglo Vedic High School, which Arya Samah operated. That school is a reform sect of modern Hinduism. Shaheed Bhagat Singh attended National College that is in Lahore.
He always loved his nation and always tried to save people, and began to protest British rule in India. He was young when he started his first fight, and soon he fought for national independence.
Moreover, Shaheed baghat Singh also worked as an editor or writer in Punjabi and Urdu-language newspapers espousing Marxist theories in Amritsar.
He is credited for popularising the slogan “Inquilab zindabad” (literally “Long live the revolution“).
In 1928, during the Simon Commission denouncing the silent march, Bhagat Singh planned to kill the police chief responsible for the death of the politician and writer Lala Lajpat Rai. He is also the founder of National College, Lahore. But, with some misunderstanding, junior officer J.P Saunders was killed by mistake. Bhagat Singh had to flee Lahore to escape the death penalty.
Then again, in 1929, Shaheed Bhagat Singh and his associate lobbed a bomb at the Central Legislative Assembly in Delhi. He did this to protest the implementation of the Defence of India Act and then surrendered. In the end, he was hanged at the age of 23 for the murder of Saunders.
