Ashok Gehlot Pays Tribute to Revolutionary Amar Shaheed Udham Singh.

Today, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot pays tribute to the courageous freedom fighter Amar Shaheed Udham Singh on his martyrdom day. Amar Shaheed Udham Singh was a fearless patriot who left an indelible mark on the pages of Indian history with his unwavering determination and commitment to seek justice for the victims of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

Born in Punjab on December 26, 1899, Udham Singh’s life was profoundly impacted by the tragic events that unfolded in Amritsar on April 13, 1919. The ruthless massacre at Jallianwala Bagh, orchestrated by the British colonial forces, led to the loss of hundreds of innocent lives. This horrifying incident left an everlasting scar on Udham Singh’s heart, fueling his resolve to avenge the innocent lives lost that fateful day.

Driven by a sense of duty towards his motherland, Udham Singh embarked on a mission to bring the perpetrators of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre to justice. With great determination, he traveled to London, where, on March 13, 1940, he succeeded in assassinating Sir Michael O’Dwyer, the former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab who had endorsed the ruthless actions of General Dyer.

Udham Singh’s brave act of retribution came at a personal cost, as he sacrificed his own freedom and ultimately his life. He was arrested immediately after the assassination and later sentenced to death by the British authorities. On July 31, 1940, Udham Singh embraced martyrdom, leaving behind a legacy that continues to inspire generations of Indians in the fight for independence and justice.

Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, while paying homage to this great revolutionary, stated, “Amar Shaheed Udham Singh ji’s sacrifice for the freedom struggle remains etched in the collective memory of our nation. His bravery and commitment to seeking justice for the innocent victims of Jallianwala Bagh will always be remembered. We are indebted to his sacrifice, and his story continues to inspire us to stand up against oppression and injustice.”
