Nehru greatly praised the bravery of Bhagat Singh.
November 14 is the birthday of the country’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Before that, we are talking about the stories related to him and his thoughts. Here we will talk about his views regarding Bhagat Singh. What did Bhagat Singh say after he was hanged? How and how right did he consider Bhagat Singh and his ways. Whenever Bhagat Singh is talked about, the question arises that what did Gandhi and Congress do for him? Could Gandhi and Congress have got Bhagat Singh’s death sentence abolished? Nehru praised the bravery of Bhagat Singh, but he said that the path of Congress was different.
On March 23, 1931, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdekh were hanged in Lahore. The next day, on March 24, in Delhi, Nehru said that he remained completely silent during his last days, so that not a single word of mine could harm the chances of commuting his sentence. I remained silent, but my heart continued to boil. Now everything is over. Even all of us could not save him, who was so dear to us and whose magnificent courage and sacrifice is becoming an inspiration for the youth of India. Today India could not even save its dear children from hanging.
Our helplessness will be mourned in the country: Nehru
Book by journalist and author Piyush Babile ‘Nehru Myth and Truth’ According to, Nehru further says that there will be strikes everywhere and mourning processions will be taken out. The country will be saddened by our helplessness, but there will also be pride for the one who is no longer among us. When England talks to us and talks about some settlement, then Bhagat Singh’s dead body will be among us wondering if we have forgotten him.
Speaking at the All India Students Convention on March 27, Nehru says that the hanging of Bhagat Singh and his comrades has reminded us of our helplessness in not being able to save the brave and patriotic youth.
We bow before his bravery: Nehru
After the hanging of Bhagat Singh, Congress session was held in Karachi on 29 March. While proposing Gandhiji here, Nehru said that what is the reason that today the name of Bhagat Singh is on everyone’s lips. He has become everyone’s favorite. He was a young boy for whom the country was full of fire. That was Shola. Within a few months that fire became a spark. There was darkness in the country, a light started appearing in the dark night. We say that we will work peacefully. Apart from peace, we have done evil in other ways. Will do the same today also. Our methods are different from Bhagat Singh, but we bow before his bravery.
Nehru says that we know that legal excesses have taken place in the trial of Bhagat Singh. He should have been tried in the ordinary court only. Bhagat Singh was going to follow a special path. He was going to fight clearly in the field. Today his picture is displayed in every house. People wear his clothes. The buttons have his picture on them. Our resolution says that we should praise his bravery. But Congress does not consider that path right.
He further says that As far as the question is what Congress did for Bhagat Singh and how much we respect Bhagat Singh, then you must be aware that a huge effort was made to pardon these people from punishment. Even if it means life imprisonment. But no hearing took place. The respect I have for Bhagat Singh is no less than yours. Bhagat Singh’s path was different. Gandhiji showed us a different path, you can understand for yourself whether we benefited from it or not.
The country will get freedom only through Gandhi’s path: Nehru
Nehru said that the war of the last one year has shown us how far we have progressed by following the path of Gandhiji. How much progress have we made for the country in 12 months? The fight broke out from one corner to the other and everyone was engrossed in it. Women and children happily entered the jails. This happened because of the path shown by Gandhiji. I clearly say that we will get freedom only by following the path shown by Gandhiji. If we leave the path of peace, we cannot be free even for many years. The path of violence is dangerous for the country.
