Bhagat Singh’s 88th death anniversary observed in Pakistan


Lahore: A candle-light vigil was held here on Saturday to mark the 88th death anniversary of Indian freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev.

The programme was organised by the Lahore-based Bhagat Singh Memorial Foundation under police security to the participants after the organisation filed an application with the district administration that it feared some ‘religious extremists’ might sabotage the event in the current Pak-India scenario.

Singh was hanged at the age of 23 in Lahore on March 23, 1931, along with Rajguru and Sukhdev. Capital punishment had inspired thousands of people to take up the cause of the freedom movement.
