NPP pays highest tributes to S. Udham Singh on his 73rd Martyrdom day

Shaheed-e-Azam Udham Singh as described by Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru in 1962 was martyred by the colonial British empire in London on 31st July, 1940. Udham Singh recorded his name as Ram Mohd. Singh Azad with his trial judge in London in 1940.

S.Udham Singh taught General Dwyer a lesson, by blowing him with his pistol right inside Caxton Hall, London, which Dwyer deserved for the commission of genocide in Jallianwala Bagh, India against the innocent Indians on 13th April, 1919.

          Hundreds of NPP activists gathered at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi to pay highest tributes to S. Udham Singh, Shaheed-e-Azam for his supreme sacrifice an act of unprecedented bravery by killing British General in his hometown in London.

Addressing the Panthers Party activists who observed this day at Jantar Mantar, Prof. Bhim Singh, Supremo of the Panthers Movement and Chief Patron of Rashtriya Chetna Abhiyan called on the youth and students to strengthen the movement so that the correct history of the freedom movement is recorded and taught in the country. Panthers Party leader said that the supreme sacrifices made by the freedom fighters which include Mangal Pandey, S. Bhagat Singh, S.Udham Singh have not been projected properly and sincerely in the history of freedom. He cautioned the younger generation to study the role of the leaders which have been decorated by the colonial British empire. The fact was both Gandhi and Nehru failed to acknowledge the sacrifice of S. Udham Singh. Mahatma Gandhi himself had condemned 10, Caxton Hall shooting. Mahatma Gandhi though had to launch Quit India Movement two years after the Caxton Hall victory of S. Udham Singh.

It was only Subhash Chander Bose who had acknowledged the supreme sacrifice and brave act of S.Udham Singh for India’s freedom. He said that role of Congress Party was doubtful and discouraging.

The Panthers Party while narrating the victorious role of S. Udham Singh, a young revolutionary from Sangroor, Punjab stated;

“S. Udham Singh, after 21 years got an opportunity to bring General Dwyer to justice. On 13 March 1940, almost 21 years after the Jallianwala Bagh killings: A joint meeting of the East India Association and the Central Asian Society (now Royal Society for Asian Affairs) was scheduled at Caxton Hall, and among the speakers was Michael O’Dwyer. Singh concealed his revolver in a book specially cut for the purpose and managed to enter the hall. He took up his position against the wall. At the end of the meeting, the gathering stood up, and O’Dwyer moved towards the platform to talk to Zetland. Singh pulled his revolver and fired. O’Dwyer was hit twice and died immediately. Then Singh fired at Zetland, the Secretary of State for India, injuring him but not seriously. Incidentally, Luis Dane was hit by one shot, which broke his radius bone and dropped him to the ground with serious injuries. A bullet also hit Lord Lamington, whose right hand was shattered. Singh did not intend to escape. He was arrested on the spot.

His weapon, a knife, his diary, along with a bullet fired on the day are now kept in the Black Museum of Scotland Yard.”

The Panthers Party activists announced that the Rashtriya Chetna Abhiyan launched by the Panthers Party under the leadership of its founder Prof. Bhim Singh shall reach every corner of the country and knock at every door of the students and youth with the awakening call to re-write the history of past freedom struggle and get ready for the achievement of Ultimate Revolution in the future so that India shall be free from corruption, communalism, criminalization and authoritarianism. Let India awake once again.
