Over the years, the young men who were tortured and hanged during the fight for India’s independence have been largely forgotten.
“Shaheed Bhagat Singh and the Forgotten Indian Martyrs,” by Reginald Massey follows the journey of India’s independence movement during the early 1900s. Published by Abhinav Publications in New Delhi, the book is a homage to freedom fighters, revolutionaries and patriots like Bhagat Singh, Khudiram Bose and Ashfaqulla Khan, who are remembered for their immense courage in their work and in the face of being hanged.
Massey discusses the uprisings and revolts against the British annexation of South Asia in the book, uncovering facts that had long been buried.
