A Viral Message Claims Bhagat Singh Was Hanged On February 14. Here Is The Truth

Published on 14 February, 2017 at 7:02 pm By

First things first – Bhagat Singh did not attain martyrdom on February 14. He did that on March 23, 1931. There is nothing at all to prove that the great freedom fighter was hanged along with Sukhdev and Rajguru on February 14.

There is, however, a campaign on social media which claims that Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru were hanged on February 14.

The campaign, which some reports claim was launched by Shiv Sena’s Punjab unit, urges people to recognise the day as “gratitude day”.

The campaign actually tells people to stop celebrating Valentine’s Day because it is a day of martyrdom.

Reports say that the district education officer in Punjab had acted on the demand and asked schools to remember the freedom fighters on the day. Upon learning the truth from official records, they withdrew the notice.

 



Every right-wing organisation, including Islamic, demands a stop on the celebration of Valentine’s Day.

 


Moral policing on this day is common and couples are often rounded up by hooligans who claim that celebrating the day is an affront to the tradition or religion.

While opposition to Valentine’s Day is purely on the political fringes in India and is opposed only by a handful, it is firmly prohibited by Islamists in Pakistan and in every Islamic republic. In fact, such is the religious opposition in the fundamentally-rooted Pakistani society that even the court banned Valentine’s Day celebrations in the country.
