    Default Exactly 90 Years Ago, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev & Rajguru Risked Their Lives For India!

    During the freedom struggle, all Indians had a dream of seeing a day where they would get to govern themselves and be free from British Raj. The Britishers, on the other hand, gave very little representation to Indians in political matters. Hence, when the Simon Commission was appointed in 1928 to make a report on the political affairs of India, it came as a bit of a surprise that not even a single Indian was appointed to be a part of it. No political party supported this and protests were held against this.

    In the city of Lahore, Lala Lajpat Rai was leading the protest with loud and clear slogans of ?Simon, go back.?



    The Senior Superintendent of Lahore Police, James Scott, ordered for lathi charge on the crowd of protesters. Saunders, an Assistant Superintendent, was also closely associated with the beating of Lala Lajpat Rai, something that ultimately lead to his demise when he succumbed to his injuries on 17th November 1928.

    There were some people who were enraged by the untimely demise of Lala Lajpat Rai and wanted revenge at any cost. These people were done with the atrocities of the British Raj. These people included Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru and Chandra Shekhar Azad. So, they decided to plot the assassination of Scott. The assassination was to prove to the British government that they couldn?t kill the freedom fighters without any consequence. Moreover, it would also intended to scare the British so that they?d think twice before killing any person from the group of freedom fighters.

    On 17th December 1928, everything was decided and the youth had their weapons ready. Azad was the main mastermind behind this attack but didn’t come to the spot as he was already absconding after the Kakori Case of 1926. However, the youngsters mistook Mr. Saunders for Mr. Scott and shot him. However, they took even Saunders death as revenge and the next thing they did was to broadcast this message in the form of posters that said, ‘Saunders is dead, Lalaji is avenged.’

    This was the incident that really alerted the British government in regards with Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru. The three were ultimately given a death sentence and hanged to death. Whenever we think of the three youngsters, our hearts fill with pride and to think that these three young men were ready to lay down their lives for the nation really makes us thankful that we had such courageous freedom fighters.
