The Painful History of
#BatukeshwarDutt

08/04/1929.
A Smoke Bomb Exploded in Central Legislative Assembly, Delhi.
"It Takes A Loud Sound To Make The Deaf Hear"
Read the pamphlets which were thrown into the gallery following a smoke bomb.
The 2 Freedom Fighters, #BhagathSingh
and Batukeshwar Dutt
stood still.

They never wanted to escape. They readily accepted imprisonment, as they believed that it would inspire the next generation of revolutionaries to fight for the cause of freedom.

Tribute to B K Dutta,
close friend of Bhagath on his Punyatithi.
In the book, " The Jail Note book & Other Writings" Chamanlal who compiled various letters, incidents wrote that
"It was clear from the beginning that these bombs were to be harmless, not designed to kill or injure anyone, but to create an explosion that would make the deaf hear
At the appointed time Bhagath Singh & BK Dutta threw the bombs over the empty seats in central assembly, threw the historic pamphlets to make the deaf hear & shouted slogans #InquilabZindabad &
#SamrajyavaadKaNaashHo

After years, Asaf Ali, the lawyer of Batukeshwar disclosed
in an interview that Batukeshwar never threw the bomb but wanted to stay with Bhagath from beginning to the end.
For this case, Bhagath, Sukhdev & Batukeshwar were charged with Life Imprisonment.

In Lahore Jail where they were kept they started hunger strike for better amenities
and they succeeded to.
Few years later, Batukeshwar was released (From Kaalapaani)
under general amnesty (by this time Sukhdev Rajguru & Bhagath were hanged for assassination of Saunders).

In Cellular jail Batukeshwar had contracted Tuberculosis, but it didn't deter him from
Participating in Quit India
Movement, the British jailed him again for 4 years..

When Bharat got independence, many freedom fighters were recognised & honoured, but Dutt didn't get his due, even though there were clear evidence of his part in freedom struggle.

In November 1947
Batukeshwar Dutta married Anjali & spent his remaining life in Poverty & away from political limelight.

Born on November 18th 1910, the Bengali Brahmin attained Mukti from his sufferings caused by Independent Bharat's Ungrateful People on July 20th 1965 at AIIMS, Delhi.
#BatukeshwarDutt was Cremated at the same spot where Bhagath, Rajguru & Sukhdev were cremated.

All those sacrifices, what for?
