What are his contributions to Freedom Struggle?
Bhagat Singh actively participated in the Indian freedom movement. He was a key figure in several revolutionary movements that shaped Indian history. Along with the Kakori cases and Bomb Explosion in Dusshera, the two other popular incidents are:
Lahore Conspiracy Case
Bhagat Singh was an important part of the infamous Lahore Conspiracy Case. Lala Lajpat Rai suffered some injuries and ultimately passed away in 1928 while participating in a protest agitation against the Simon Commission. Angered by the incident, Bhagat Singh resolved to exact revenge and, as a result of a misunderstanding, killed J. P. Saunders, another official in place of SP James Scott.
Later, an arrest warrant was released in his name, and to avoid this he left Lahore and disguise his appearance.
Central Assembly Bombing Case
The bombing that occurred on April 8, 1929, in Delhi's Central Legislative Assembly was another incident in which Bhagat Singh was involved. Bhagat Singh and his accomplice Batukeshwar Dutt detonated the bomb from the "Visitor's Gallery." Additionally, they dispersed pamphlets and raised the slogan "Inquilab Zindabad". Considering that they needed a platform to get their message out, Batukeshwar Dutt and Bhagat Singh both didn’t oppose their arrest. And at that point, he uttered his most well-known phrase, "to make the deaf hear."
Being an avid reader of leftist writings, Bhagat Singh continued to publish critical articles to express his disapproval of the British government and to incite people to overthrow the rule.
