Writer who wrote Bhagat Singh's biography had to serve a 2-year jail term

New Delhi: Today, Bhagat Singh Singh may not be among us, but he will always be immortal in our memories. There is a large section in the country, which considers him a freedom fighter and a big hero ahead of the revolutionary. But as popular as he was among the youth, his name remained controversial. This is because, sometimes his statue was objected to in Parliament, there was a dispute over the coins that were issued. Even a writer who wrote his biography had to serve a 2-year jail term.

Today (March 23) is martyrdom day. On this day, revolutionary Bhagat Singh was hanged along with his friends. On this occasion, PM Narendra Modi posted a tweet in the morning. He paid homage to Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru and remembered them. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi has said that the views of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru will always remain immortal. Whenever there is a voice against justice, there will be a curse of these martyrs in that voice. In the heart that will have the spirit of dying for India, there will be the name of these three heroes in that heart.

In the year 1970, the then Chief Minister Giani Zail Singh had unveiled the statue of Bhagat Singh. In Nawanshahr (now Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar), his brother Kaltar Singh was also present and the statue showed Singh wearing a cap. However, this statue was later replaced and in the new statue, he was shown with a turban. On the occasion of the Martyrs' Day, the Congress party said- By crushing individuals, ideas cannot be killed, one idea can bring about change. The ideological battle for the same change continues. When the government issued five rupees and 100 rupee coins on the centenary year (2007-08) of Bhagat Singh, they showed the martyred revolutionary wearing a cap. Akali Dal leaders in Punjab had expressed their opposition to the issue and said that the turbaned look of Bhagat Singh was not portrayed. At the same time, Jitendra Nath Sanyal had to serve two years in jail for writing the biography of Bhagat Singh. He was released in the Lahore conspiracy case and he knew Singh personally.

Before hanging, Bhagat Singh had told this man his last wish, which was not fulfilled
