Martyrs' Day 2022: March 23 Is Marked As Shaheed Diwas

India remembers its great freedom fighters- Bhagat Singh...

His close associates Shivaram Rajguru and...

Sukhdev Thapar on their death anniversary today.

The three were sentenced to death by the British colonial rulers & hanged in Lahore jail On March 23, 1931.

They planned to avenge the death of Lala Lajpat Rai and plotted to assassinate SP James Scott in Lahore. But shot John Saunders by mistake.

Bhagat Singh popularised the slogan - ‘Inquilab Zindabad’ that became the catchphrase of the Indian independence movement.

Delhi govt's Armed Forces Preparatory School will be named after Bhagat Singh in 2022.

Shaheed Diwas is observed twice in India - one is on 23 March & the other on 30 January, the day when Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated.
