Ironically we celebrate ‘Martyrs’ Day’ on 23 March every year on the day Bhagat Singh,Sukhdev and Rajguru were hanged in Lahore Central Jail, but even after 87 years of the sacrifice they have not yet been venerated as a ‘National Martyrs’ as a matter of fact they are so ignored that there’s not a single mention of the patriots in the entire NCERT history textbooks from Class 7 to 12.
Today, as the Bhagat Singh controversy rages across the nation, a child going to the school is also being taught to call the freedom fighters "terrorists"!*
Even a cursory glance at Bhagat Singh’s life would prove that he was not an advocate of violence for the sake of it.
Senior Citizens Tarsem Lal Sharma along with Dev Sarabha and ParasRam have taken an initiative and started a hunger-strike for indefinite period supporting this cause at Shaheedi Park in New Delhi on the eve of Matryrs’ Day (23 March 2018)
Let’s support them by signing this petition so that the Government of India can grant these martyrs the respect which is long overdue.Even if that’s the least we can do, it will be a true tribute and our future generations will thank us for it.
