Sometimes I feel infuriated when Congressmen harp on the ‘sacrifices’ of great Martyrs Mohandas Gandhi, Indira Gandhi or Rajiv Gandh; For God’s sake, they wanted to live and continue with their Power! They weren’t standing erect in front of their assassins to get ‘Martyred’! You know who does that? <strong>Our Army Jawans! They go prepared to face death when they face the enemy at LoC or while nabbing terrorists.
And you know who did that in the past? I will count their names with pride in my heart and tears in my eyes….Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev Thapar, Shivram Rajguru, Chandrashekhar Azad, Ashfaqulla Khan, Khudiram Bose, Ram Prasad Bismil and Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi to name a few!
23 March, the day our fearless sons of Mother India, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru were executed by the British. <strong>Ironically, our national Martyrs day is 30th January, the day M K Gandhi was assassinated….the man whose faithfulness towards the British brought him the title ‘Kaiser-e-Hind’ from them…the man whom they rewarded by handing over the power! And irony dies merciless deaths when we Indians call him the ‘Father of the Nation’, ‘Mahatma’ and a Martyr!
We have been brainwashed to glorify ‘Bapuji’ enough. Let’s wake up from the stupor created by the twisted Historians of the British, Congress and Leftists. It’s the bitter truth, but truth nonetheless! Bhagat Singh and his Revolutionary comrades were a threat to the British. Now, who loves harboring a fear all the time of getting bombed or shot? But Gandhi was a savior! He came out with one brilliantly half-cooked philosophy …. ‘Non-violence’! Millions of lion-hearted Indians were comfortably tamed into submissive weaklings. I’m sure the British had great fun when the dumb Indians presented their other cheek when slapped!
Thank God we had brave Revolutionary freedom fighters unpolluted by Non-violence like Bhagat Singh and Subhash Chandra Bose, today we are breathing the free air of India! They made enough noise to drive out the British. Bhagat Singh said, “If the deaf are to hear, the sound has to be very loud. When we dropped the bomb, our intention was not to kill anybody. We have bombed the British Government. The British must quit India and make her free!”
Bhagat Singh had vowed to avenge the great freedom fighter Lala Lajpat Rai’s murder by the British. He made a plan along with Batukeshwar Dutt to bomb the Central Legislative assembly. They bombarded the assembly with two bombs. Among the slogans ‘Inquilab Zindabad ‘ (Long live Revolution), they surrendered themselves. This courageous act inspired thousands of youth to shake off Non-violence and fight the evils of British bravely. Though Bhagat Singh sacrificed his life for Mother India, his ideology created thousands of Bhagat Singhs. He gave a lasting lesson to Indian youth in his death.
Though he had requested Lord Irwin through a letter to be treated as prisoners of war and consequently to be executed by firing squad and not by hanging. But his request was declined and he was executed on 23<sup>rd</sup> March, 1931 by hanging.Coming back to the British puppet, M K Gandhi. Well, history is the witness as to the calamities brought upon India in the name of Gandhi’s Truth and Non-violence! 5 Lakh Indians martyred while fighting the war for British. Gandhi was in the good books of British and helped them by recruiting Indians in their Army in 1916 to fight for them. The British even awarded the title of “Kaiser-e-Hind’ to our ‘Non-violence Peddler for his great service towards them! Who can overcome the pains of Partition saga that killed more than Million Indians? Who can forget the attacks on lakhs of Hindus in Mopla Riots (1921 and Naokhali Riots (1946) that got silent approval by this Minority Appeaser? It’s a mockery of Mother India that his death is treated as ‘Martyrdom’!
Now you tell me, which should be the National Martyr’s day, 23rd March or 30th January? Who is the Martyr, one who selflessly gifted his life on the feet of Mother India or the one who savored the undeserved attention and glorification by Nehruvian Historians but whose contribution towards the freedom of India was dismissed as ‘Minimal’ by British PM of those times, Clement Attlee?
Let’s pay Tribute to all those selfless and brave freedom fighters who sacrificed everything including their lives so that you and I could be born in free India! Inquilab Zindabad!
