Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev

23rd March marks the date when Indian freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were hanged by the British Government at the Lahore Jail in 1931.

The trio was hanged for their roles in the Lahore conspiracy and killing of John Saunders, Assistant Superintendent of Police on 17 December 1928. Bhagat Singh was just 23 years old at the time of his death and his death caused the youth of the nation to intensify the freedom movement against the British government.

Bhagat Singh coined the phrase 'Inquilab Zindabad.’

Their contribution and sacrifices for the cause of Indian independence led to a resurgence in efforts which ultimately resulted in India getting freedom from British, albeit 16 years later in 1947.

Cricketers saluted the spirit and courage of Bhagat Singh and his two friends Rajguru and Sukhdev on Twitter.  

Here are some tweets on Shaheed Diwas:
