Today is the 112th Birth Anniversary of the Greatest
Indian Revolutionary. I will share few of his best quotes. #THREAD

“Merciless criticism and independent thinking are the two necessary traits of revolutionary thinking.”

― Bhagat Singh
"What is your view about punishments inflicted on the people who were deliberately kept ignorant by selfish and proud Brahmans? If by chance these poor creatures heard a few words of your sacred books, Vedas, these Brahmans poured melted lead into their ears."

- Bhagat Singh
"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."

- Bhagat Singh
"You, the Hindus, Let me say it plainly that your ancestors were shrewd people. They were always in search of petty hoaxes to play upon people and snatch from them the power of Reason."

- Bhagat Singh (Why I am an Atheist)
"Open your eyes, see millions of people dying of hunger in slums dirtier than the grim dungeons of prisons; just see the labourers patiently or say apathetically while the rich vampires suck their blood."

- Bhagat Singh
"If the deaf have to hear, the sound has to be very loud."

- Bhagat Singh
"Don't you think it is too late."

Bhagat Singh spent his last days in cell No. 14 in Lahore Central Jail which was under the command of Jail Warden Charat Singh.
On January 21, 1930, the accused (Bhagat Singh), in the Lahore Conspiracy Case, appeared in the court wearing red scarves.

As soon as the magistrate took his chair he raised these slogans,

"Long Live Socialist Revolution"
"Lenin's Name Will Never Die"
"Down with Imperialism"
"Bombs and pistols don't make a revolution. The sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting stone of ideas".

- Bhagat Singh
"Revolution is an inalienable right of mankind. Freedom is an imperishable birth right of all."

- Bhagat Singh

Bhagat Singh was reading Lenin's 'State and Revolution' during his last hours, and a guard came to him & said, "It's time."

A 22 year old boy wrote this these words with such clarity and precision.

'Why I am an Atheist' by Bhagat Singh should be a must read book for all Indians.

He wrote the book while he was in Lahore Central Jail. His words still echoes even after 90 years
