A tribute to Saheed Bhagat Singh on his Birth day on September 28,2010

Bishwanath Singh Bishwanath Singh Bhagat Singh was an Indian freedom fighter, considered to be one of the most influential revolutionaries of the Indian independence movement. He is often referred to as Shaheed Bhagat Singh ( shaheed meaning "martyr").Born to a Jat Sikh fam...ily on the 28th September 1907 which had earlier been involv...ed in revolutionary activities against the British Raj in India, Singh, as a teenager, had studied European revolutionary movements and was attracted to anarchism and communism. He became involved in numerous revolutionary organizations. He quickly rose through the ranks of the Hindustan Republican Association and became one of its leaders, converting it to the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association .Singh had gained massive support when he underwent a sixty four fast in jail, demanding equal rights for Indian and British political prisoners. He was hanged for shooting a police officer in response to the killing of veteran freedom fighter Lala Lajpat Rai.
His legacy prompted youth in India to begin fighting for Indian independence and also increased the rise of socialism in India. Bhagat Singh was known for his appreciation of martyrdom. His mentor as a young boy was Kartar Singh Sarabha. Singh is himself considered a martyr for acting to avenge the death of Lala Lajpat Rai. In the leaflet he threw in the Central Assembly on 9 April 1929, he stated that it is easy to kill individuals but you cannot kill the ideas. Great empires crumbled while the ideas survived. After engaging in studies on the Russian Revolution, he wanted to die so that his death would inspire the youth of India which in turn will unite them to fight the British Empire.While in prison, Bhagat Singh and two others had written a letter to the Viceroy asking him to treat them as prisoners of war and hence to execute them by firing squad and not by hanging. On the  23rd March 1931, Bhagat Singh was hanged in Lahore with his fellow comrades Rajguru and Sukhdev. His supporters, who had been protesting against the hanging, immediately declared him as a shaheed or martyr

इंकलाब ज़िन्दाबाद , शहीदे आज़म भगत सिंह की जयंती पर उनको शत शत नमन करते हुए इस बात पर विचार करें कि... आज तथाकथित क्रांति के नाम पर देश के अनेक हिस्सों मे माओवादी और नक्सलवादी जो निर्दोष जनता का खून बहा रहे हैं ,वह कहाँ तक उचित है .अयोध्या विवाद पर माननीय उचचतम न्यायालय द्वारा आज ही के दिन सुलह समझौते की संभावना पर सुनवाई शहीदे आजम के विचारों की प्रासंगिकता को और बढ़ा देते हैं ।
