HISTORY OF INDIAN INDEPENDENCE DAY
British Arrival In India
Nearly 400 years ago, the East India Company of British came to India with the objective of doing business in India. In those days Pakistan and Bangladesh used to be part of India. The British along with their trade here began to examine the poverty, compulsion, and weaknesses of the people and took advantage of their compulsions.
The British gradually took advantage of the compulsions of the Indians and started torturing them as slaves, and mainly they used to suppress the poor and forced people under their debt. On not paying the debt, they made him their slave and started doing arbitrary work and torture on them. One by one, they took control of the kingdoms and their kings and took control of almost all of India.
Persecution of Indians
During the occupation of India by the British, they started committing atrocious persecution of the people, such as incurring revenue, capturing their fields and grains, etc. Due to this, the people here had to suffer a lot of their atrocities. When they opposed this atrocity, they were gunned down with bullets like the Jallianwala Bagh incident.
Indian Anger Against English Rule
The attitude of the British towards Indians and their atrocities was increasing day by day and the anger of Indians and the fire of revenge were also increasing among them. The fire of this barbaric attitude of the British was first seen as an uprising of Mangal Pandey in 1857. Due to this rebellion of Mangal Pandey, he was killed, due to this people got angry towards the British, and new movements started to appear.
Demand For Freedom
Anger and demand for their freedom started coming in the people due to the increasing atrocities of the British. Due to which many incidents and incidents of skirmishes against the English government continued to increase. Mangal Pandey first protested in 1857, and because of this, he lost his life. Gradually, the voices demanding freedom from the tyranny of the British started coming from elsewhere in India.
Important Contribution Of Freedom Fighters For Freedom
Many freedom fighters have sacrificed their lives to give India freedom from British tyranny, Mahatma Gandhi’s most outstanding contribution among them. The British rulers, who had been ruling India for nearly 200 years, were forced by Gandhi to defeat them with two arms like truth and non-violence. Mahatma Gandhi made truth and non-violence his weapon and also inspired the people and asked people to adopt it and fight against the tyranny of the British. The people of the country supported him and participated in freedom. People used to call him Bapu with love and respect.
Some Other Freedom Fighters Contribute To Freedom
Although the whole of India contributed something in their own way in the freedom struggle, there were some people who contributed to freedom by presenting their leadership, strategy, and skills.
Many other freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Ballabh Bhai Patel, Bal Gangadhar Tilak fought together against the British. Some continued their fight by adopting truth and non-violence. On the other side, there were some freedom fighters who took the path of violence against British rule, who was named as a revolutionary. These revolutionaries mainly joined the organization and fought the war against the British. Mainly Mangal Pandey, Chandrashekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru & Sukhdev, etc. were many such revolutionaries who contributed to freedom in their own way.
