Cuttack ( Odisha ): On the memorial day, Shaheed Diwas, a program was organized at Swargdham by Brahma Kumaris in Cuttack.
BK Sulochana; Niranjan Rath, Publisher, The Samaj; Sachikanta Nath, former Naval Officer; and Professor Dr. Krupasindhu Panda joined as chief guests. A candle was lit before Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru.
BK Sulochana expressed how we are still unfree as we are tied up with the net of the 5 vices, i.e., kaam, krodh, lobh, moha and ahankar (lust, greed, anger, attachment and ego) and only the Supreme Soul can rehabilitate from these. The President of Swargdham co-ordinated the whole program.
Shaheed Diwas 2022 is observed across India on Wednesday (March 23, 2022) to pay homage to the legendary freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev who made supreme sacrifices for the motherland on this day in 1931.
March 23, which is also known as Shaheed Diwas or Martyrs’ Day, is observed every year on this day in remembrance of India’s three young revolutionaries who were hanged to death in the Lahore Central Jail (now Pakistan) by the British Raj in 1931.
