Bhagat Singh

Bhagat Singh was one of the prominent Indian freedom fighters born on September 28, 1907. His ideas, propagated through Punjabi and Urdu language newspapers, gained fame during the Indian independence movement and were viewed as a threat by the British colonialist regime.
In 1929, Bhagat Singh threw a bomb at the Central Legislative Assembly in Delhi to protest the implementation of the Defence of India Act – a law that gave the government of British India special powers to deal with revolutionary and German-inspired threats during the Second World War. He was sentenced to death by the British for his role in the murder of British police officer JP Saunders.
