Why is 31st July important? #Thread

"He is a mad man" - said Gandhi !

"His act was a senseless deed" - said Nehru !

"We condemn his act of terror and apologise and hope we are not punished for it" - - resolution passed by Congress!
He was Shaheed #UdhamSingh and the senseless deed he did was that he killed Michael Dwyer.

Michael was the monster who massacred 1526 innocent unarmed peaceful Indians in Jalian wala Bagh in 1919
Udham Singh was 19 year old volunteer who was serving water to the 20,000 people gathered in the garden on festival of Baisakhi

They were brutally massacred by Gen Dwyer & Udham was live witness to it

He wanted to avenge the brutality & get some sense of justice to the martyrs

" It is easy to kill individuals but you cannot kill the ideas. Great empires crumbled, while the ideas survived. "

These days, I often see people comparing Kashmiri Jihadis with #BhagatSingh, this is an awful comparison because Bhagat Singh was staunchest atheist who was fighting imperialism to establish democracy, these jihadis are fighting against democracy to establish Islamic Caliphate.

#LestWeForget On this date in 1931, #BhagatSingh , #Rajguru and #Sukhdev were hanged to death. 3 young men who gave their lives for our freedom. This thread is more on the trial and execution of #BhagatSingh, the circumstances leading up to it.
Bhagat Singh, a man who was an icon of sorts in the revolutionary spectrum of India’s freedom movement. A man who smilingly went to the gallows, whose only purpose in throwing the bomb was to make the deaf hear.
Contrary to popular perception, Bhagat Singh was not really a believer in revolutionary violence. For him violence was more to be used as a last resort, he believed more in mass awakening, educating the people. He felt that mere violence per se wud not serve any purpose.

Since many people question the contribution of RSS /Hindutva ideology towards India's freedom struggle...

I am writing this #RightFactsThread

Let's start:

1. Contribution of Congress Vs that of Hindutva in

#IndianFreedomMovement

1/n
Congress origin was to maintain status-Quo of British policies, also to act as a safety valve..to prevent a repeat of 1857

Hindutva came up as Tilak, Aurobindo, thought "Hindu mythology" vl help mobilisation of people & achievements of Vedic civilization vl instill pride

2/n
While Britishers were claiming their aim was 'civilising mission"

Congress (Nehruvians) adopted the #SuitBoot Culture surrendering to prayers& petition politics

While Hindutva says we knew Democracy, Republican ideas from times of Lichchhavis, Yaudheyas, Vaishali..
