Bhagat Singh's birth anniversary: The famous quotes and contributions of India’s freedom struggle

News Express: Reform leader Bhagat Singh was born into a Sikh family on September 27, 1907 in the Lyallpur region, now in Pakistan. He belonged to a family that had participated in the liberation struggle, which is why he was drawn to the Indian Independence movement at a young age.

He supported Mahatma Gandhi in the Non-Aligned Movement and was involved in the Jallianwala Bagh massacre (1919) and the violence against the unarmed Akali protesters in Nankana Sahib (1921). He did not believe in God and strongly opposed capitalism.

Bhagat Singh’s contribution to India’s freedom struggle 

Bhagat Singh founded the Naujawan Bharat Sabha in 1926 to encourage farmers and workers to fight against the British empire. He was the secretary of that organization.

In 1928, the Hindustan Socialist Association (HSRA) was also founded by him, along with Sukhdev, Chandrasekhar Azad and others.

Bhagat Singh also avenged the death of his friend Lala Lajpat Rai, who turned out to be the victim and became part of the Lahore Conspiracy Case. After the plot, he fled to Lahore.

Bhagat Singh's inspiring quotes:

"They may kill me, but they cannot kill my ideas. They can crush my body, but they will not be able to crush my spirit." 
"Revolution is an inalienable right of mankind. Freedom is an imperishable birthright of all" "I am such a lunatic that I am free even in jail" 
"I am full of ambition and hope and charm in life. But I can renounce everything in time of need' 
"If the deaf have to hear, the sound has to be very loud" 
"Bombs and pistols do not make a revolution. The sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting stone of ideas."
"May the sun in his course visit no land freer, happier, more lovely, than this our own country." "Revolution is an inalienable right of mankind. Freedom is an imperishable birthright of all. Labour is the real sustainer of society." 
"Merciless criticism and independent thinking are two traits of revolutionary thinking. Lovers, lunatics and poets are made of the same stuff." 
"One should not interpret the word 'revolution' in its literal sense. Various meanings and significance are attributed to this word, according to the interests of those who use or misuse it. For the established agencies of exploitation, it conjures up a feeling of blood-stained horror. To the revolutionaries, it is a sacred phrase."
