Freedom Fighters

Freedom Fighters are those people that have fought hard for the freedom of this country. These people often time have gone on fasting, strike and have raised their voice against the injustice present in the society. During British rule they used several ways to express their dissatisfaction towards the British colonial rule. They often sacrificed years of their life and sometimes even their life to stand against any form of injustice been done to them whether directly or indirectly. They suffered a  lot for the freedom of the country and often time went on strike,  fasting or stop working to protest against British rule in India. Some of them were physically and mentally tortured but they still didn't lose their will to fight and gave us freedom ultimately.

Names of some freedom fighters are Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Mangal Pandey, Mahatma Gandhi, Rani Laxmi Bai, Subhash Chandra Bose, Jwaharlal Nehru, Rajguru, Lok Manya Tilak, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Chnadra Shekhar and Rajguru. Here, we are going to talk about the contribution of selected few. Firstly Mangal Pandey he was a sepoy or soldier or a police staff who refused to use guns as the cartridge was rumored to be made from pig's meat. The process of loading guns required the soldiers to bite down the pork cartridge. This was prohibited to Brahman and Muslim due to religious reasons. The sepoy protested against it by not firing the guns. This created a fight among Britishers and sepoy which ultimately resulted in hanging of Mangal Pandey. 

Another example is of Rani Laxmi Bai who fought against Britishers. She was against the British rule of taking a kingdom as a colony in the absence of a male child who can rule the kingdom. Jhasi, her kingdom was at a state of being taken by Britishers due to the lack of a male child being born out of the marriage between her and Raja Gangadhar Rao Newalkar.  She fought against this rule and even adopted a male child to protect her kingdom from Britishers. Next is Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose who fought for India's freedom. He was a freedom fighter who didn't believe in peace and non violence. He took Hitler's help to build Indian National Army and fight against British Raj. His campaign for freedom was 'You give me blood and I will give you freedom'.

Next is Mahatma Gandhi whose philosophy of Satyagraha, non violence, non cooperation and firm belief in truth ultimately lead India to freedom. On several occssions he expressed his discontent towards the British rule. He encouraged the Indians to unite against the Britishers to fight against their rules. Next is Pandit Jwaharlal Nehru, he was the first Prime Minister of the independent country. He was taken into custody or put in jail for supporting Gandhi ji on Salt Act. Next was Lal Bahadur Shastri, the second prime minister of India. He joined non cooperation movement and Satyagraha with Gandhi and was even jailed for it. Thus, all freedom fighter contributed to the cause of freedom.
