Bhagat Singh never wore a yellow turban, wore a turban of this color throughout his life

Today is the martyrdom day of Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh. This hero of freedom was hanged on this day. Bhagat Singh, who sacrificed India at a young age, is still an inspiration to the youth. The youth follow every style of Bhagat Singh, the owner of 6 feet tall and excellent personality. Whether it is the style of his mustache or the style of tying a turban... the new Chief Minister of Punjab, Bhagwant Mann, also believes in Shaheed-e-Azam a lot. Bhagwant Mann always wears a yellow turban. He once said about this that he wears a yellow turban inspired by Bhagat Singh, but do you know that Bhagat Singh never wore a yellow turban. All his certified photos are black and white.

Bhagat Singh was born on 28 September 1907 in Banga village of Lyallpur district of Punjab, which was then British India and today is Pakistan. After studying till 5th in the village school of Banga, he was admitted to DAV Vidyalaya in Lahore. In 1923, he took admission in the National College in Lahore to study BA, which had been established two years earlier by Lala Lajpat Rai in response to Mahatma Gandhi's non-cooperation movement. However, Bhagat Singh could not complete his BA and had to go underground to avoid the arrest of the British for participating in the freedom struggle. Chaman Lal, a retired professor from Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University, has researched the life of Bhagat Singh. Professor Chaman Lal says that Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh has worn only white turban in his entire life. Bhagat Singh wore a black turban to protest against the British when the Jathas going to Nankana Sahib were being persecuted only due to the British rule. At that time Bhagat Singh had set up a langar of water and food for the jathas going to Nankana Sahib.

Retired Professor Chaman Lal from JNU, who has written many books on the life of the martyr, said that he is saying all this on the basis of available photographs of Bhagat Singh and documents related to him. Only 4 photographs of Bhagat Singh's life are available, one of which is of his childhood, a picture of his youth in a white turban and a picture of him sitting on a bunk and fourth with a hat. The family members of the martyr themselves also confirm these pictures.
