Statement of the Central Committee of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, 10th March, 2018The 23rd of March is observed as Martyrs’ Day. It is on that day in 1931 that Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Shaheed Sukhdev and Shaheed Rajguru were hanged to death by the British Raj. Ever since the Great Ghadar of 1857 and from even before, the British Raj put to death countless patriots all over the Indian sub-continent. They branded them as “enemies of the State”. Martyrs’ Day is an occasion to recall what such patriots fought for and why the British rulers put them to death.
