    No record to show Bhagat Singh as a martyr

    'No record to show Bhagat Singh as a martyr’ - The Times of India

    NEW DELHI: He may rule a million hearts, his supreme sacrifice inspiring many a revolution, but in government records Bhagat Singh is not a martyr. In a reply to an RTI query, the home ministry has said it has no record to show whether Bhagat Singh has been declared a martyr.

    Now, the legendary freedom fighter's grandnephew, Yadavendra Singh, is planning to launch a campaign to get Bhagat Singh declared a martyr. According to Yadavendra, in April the home ministry had been asked in an RTI query as to when Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were declared martyrs and, if not, what was the government doing to get them the tag.

    In May, the home ministry's public information officer Shamlal Mohan replied that the ministry had no record to show whether the trio had been declared martyrs. The reply also said it had no information on what the government was doing about it.

    With this reply in hand, Yadavendra has approached the MHA to press for declaring Bhagat Singh and others who laid down their lives for the country's freedom as martyrs. "I have been trying to meet the home secretary and have sought an appointment. But the home ministry has not responded positively as yet. I am now planning to meet President Pranab Mukherjee with families of Rajguru and Sukhdev.

    "I am hopeful he will be receptive to such an idea. After all the country already calls Bhagat Singh 'Shaheed', it's only a matter of putting it on record," says Yadavendra, who adds that if the President does not agree, he would launch a nationwide campaign for the same. "Families of several freedom fighters are with us on this," he says.

    MHA sources, however, say there is no system or policy in place to declare those who died in freedom struggle as martyrs. "No one has ever been declared a martyr by the home ministry. There is no such policy. Only defence ministry does so for armed forces men," said a home ministry official.

    In fact, personnel from paramilitary forces, which function under the home ministry, are not declared martyrs even though they fight as bravely and suffer great casualties combating Naxalites and militants. The death of 20 uniformed men in the Kedarnath chopper crash in June is a cruel example of this irony. The chopper had five IAF men and 15 ITBP personnel on board. While the IAF men were honoured as martyrs, ITBP personnel were declared dead.

    Bhagat Singh was a communist but a patriot of India, unlike members of current communist parties in India.

    Yadavendra Sir, do not expect anything from Congress government... Congress & Muslim League colluded to split the country for their narrow political gains... It is irony that Congress remains in power for 50 years but forgot to give due respect to one of the Greatest Son of India ever… Beloved Bhagat Singh lives in our heart, GOD willing shall be forever…

    There are many who sacrificed themselves for India's freedom.

    There are hardly any record on them and that helps quite a few well connected frauds to get themselves registered as 'freedom fighters' to get the benefits.

    Is there any record of those of the Anushilan Party who sacrificed themselves recorded as martyrs?

    Any record that indicates those involved in the Chittagong armoury raid, like Surya Sen as martyrs?

    The fact that the country acknowledges people like Bhagat Singh and Surya Sen, Binod , Badal and Dinesh as martyrs is good enough!

    While it might not be admitted, recognising them, who sacrificed but were not of the Congress Party, will dilute the claims of the Congress spokespersons like Renuka Chaowdry and Manish tiwari that it was only the Congress who fought for India's Independence and sacrificed for the same.

    The Congress logic is unique.

    Yesterday, in a TV Debate, was it Left, right and Centre (?), Renuka Chowdry said it was bad taste for Modi to have a parallel Independence Speech and do down the post of the PM and say Saas, Bahu, Damad..

    But when asked by asked by the moderator as to if calling him a khalnayak frog, national embarrassment, she said that was OK because Kharhsed was not a PM aspirant!

    So, if you are a PM aspirant, even if you are a politician, it is not par for the course, but if you were not a PM aspirant, it is fine to be abusive and downright crass!

    Renuka C is an unique brain and logic denied Amazon!

    Don't mind, I am within her logic. I am not a PM aspirant!

    So, why feel hurt that Bhagat Singh and others are not officially acknowledged as martyrs? Take heart, Gandhi and Nehru and the Gandhi Nehru family are! Isn't that a great thing? Shed a tear of patriotism, please.

    And so is Renuka C and Mansh T and that adjective Sangvi. They sacrifice their logic and brains every TV show for the Gandhi Nehrus. Yes, daily! And can you deny that the Gandhi Nehrus are alone the Nation?

    Poor sods!

    There is really no clear evidence to suggest that Bhagat Singh was a communist. At most, it could be said that he was studying some of the communist ideology. One has to remember that it had been only few years since the communist take over of Russia and a lot of radicals of all sorts all over the world were excited about this wonderful "communist scientific revolution".

    BTW who will declare them as Martyr, i mean which department of Govt?

    MHA will go as per record of the case at the time of British Raj.

    BTW if they have not done it, they can do so now, may be name Airport or some big hospital after them.

    He is a martyr.

    The central government had taken a decision — Pakistan will not be given Rs 55 crores. On January 13 Gandhi started a fast unto death that Pakistan must be given the money. On January 13, the central government changed its earlier decision and announced that Pakistan would be given the amount. On January 13, Nathuram decided to assassinate Gandhi.

    Therefore, Gandhi is a martyr!.
