Amit Shah pays tribute to the revolutionaries of the Kakori incident


Union Home Secretary Amit Shah on Sunday paid tribute to freedom fighters Veer P Ramprasad Bismil, Thakur Roshan Singh and Ashfaq Ullah Khan who were sentenced to death by the British government for their involvement in the Kakori plot. “When an independent nation was only a dream for the countrymen, then Veer P. Ramprasad Bismil, Thakur Roshan Singh and Ashfaq Ullah Khan rekindled the flame of independence among the people by challenging the foreign domination that was stolen to Kakori Tribute to the brave sons of Mother Bharati on the day of their sacrifice, “Shah tweeted.

The Kakori Train Action or Kakori Conspiracy was a train theft that took place in Kakori, a village near Lucknow, on August 9, 1925 during the Indian independence movement from British colonial rule. The robbery was organized by the Hindustan Republican Association and more than 40 people were arrested in this incident and they were ultimately sentenced to death by the UK government and severe sentences were also given to those who helped to this incident.

Earlier in August, the government of Uttar Pradesh renamed “Kakori Kand” to “Kakori Train action” because the word “Kand” denotes a sense of insult to this incident as part of the struggle for the independence of India. (ANI)
