Martyrs' Day, also known as Shaheed Divas, is observed on March 23 to remember the sacrifices made by Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru, and Sukhdev Thapar, three extraordinary Indian revolutionaries. This day is observed annually to honor the unsung heroes of our nation and the freedom fighters who gave their lives for a free, sovereign, and open India. On January 30, Mahatma Gandhi's death anniversary, Martyrs' Day is observed.

Death of Mahatma Gandhi Gandhi was killed on January 30, 1948, by Nathuram Godse. There were massive public outpourings of grief after his death.

The saddest day in India's independence struggle occurred on this day.

Every January 30, the Martyrs' Day is observed to honor Mahatma Gandhi's service to India and the sacrifices he made during the freedom struggle.

Gandhiji was shot and killed by a young man named Nathuram Godse on January 30 while he was attending his daily prayer meeting.

Godse executed Gandhi because he disagreed with Gandhiji's belief that Muslims and Hindus should coexist peacefully.

Nathuram Godse was from Pune. Godse was his name.

He was the editor of a Hindu extremist publication.

Gandhiji was shot three times by Godse in front of a large crowd.

Mahatma Gandhi's Contributions The following are Mahatma Gandhi's contributions to the world:

Satyagraha is a brand-new mentality and approach.

The idea that there is only one moral universe and that everyone's, groups', and nations' morals must be the same.

His insistence that there must be consistency between the means and the ends.

the fact that he did not hold any ideals, did not embody them, or was not about to do so.

A willingness to sacrifice suffering and death for his beliefs. His Satyagraha is the most significant of these.

He was the leader of numerous national freedom movements and advocated for peace over violence.

Bhagat Singh's death, Shivaram Rajguru's death, and Sukhdev Thapar's death Revolutionary nationalists, like Bhagat Singh and his friends, wanted to fight colonial rule and the rich and powerful classes that were exploiting each other by starting a revolution of workers and peasants.

In 1928, at Ferozeshah Kotla in Delhi, they established the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association (HSRA) for this purpose.

Saunders, a police officer who had led a lathi charge that resulted in Lala Lajpat Rai's death, was killed by members of the HSRA. The death of Lala Lajpat Rai on October 30, 1928, during a non-violent protest against the Simon Commission, deeply affected Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru.

On April 8, 1929, Bhagat Singh and fellow nationalist B.K. Dutt detonated a bomb in the Central Legislative Assembly.

According to their leaflet, the goal was not to kill anyone but rather to "make the deaf hear" and remind the foreign government of how cruelly it was exploited.

Martyrs' Day commemorates the deaths of Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru, and Sukhdev Thapar on March 23, 1931, when they were fighting for India's independence.

In 1928, the British executed the three heroes by hanging them on suspicion of killing British officer John Saunders. They were then cremated on the banks of the Sutlej River.

At the age of 23, Bhagat Singh was tried and executed. During the struggle for freedom, young people were inspired by the revolutionary ideas and spirit of these three.
