This story was widely circulated on Facebook, forums and other social networks, claiming that Bhagat Singh, the Indian freedom fighter was hanged on Valentine’s day, 14.02.1931 at Lahore. The story further appeals to the people that 14th Feb is not just significant as Valentine’s day, the day Bhagat singh was hanged, and we should pay due respect to the Indian legendary freedom fighter as well.

Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru Were Hanged On 14th February 1931, Fake Facebook Post

It’s that time of the year again when overzealous individuals start demanding that Valentine’s Day should be observed as ‘Black Day’, because they believe legendary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh was hanged on this day. Last year, the Shiv Sena (Punjab) had demanded that the day be marked ‘Black Day’. This year, , Education Officer (Primary), Solapur Zilla Parishad, Tanaji Ghadge had directed all block education officers and administrative officers to organise a “gratitude day” in schools by inviting parents of students and asking students to express gratitude by performing ‘aarti’.

The story claiming Bhagat Singh was hanged on 14th feb Valentine’s day is therefore a hoax.

According to a news report in The Hindu, “The Wikipedia page on Bhagat Singh underwent many editing changes on February 13 and 14, Valentine’s Day.” The date of his hanging had been changed from March 23, 1931, to February 14, 1931. Similarly, on Twitter, this misinformation had spread like a fire.

As per the government records, the date of birth of Bhagat Singh is either September 27 or 28, 1907 and he was born at Banga, Jaranwala Tehsil, Lyallpur district, Punjab. When it comes to the date of his hanging, as per the official records, the date of hanging of all the three was 23rd March, 1931 in Lahore (Punjab), which is now a part of Pakistan. On 7 October 1930 the tribunal delivered its judgement, sentencing Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru to death by hanging

The death warrant for Bhagat Singh was issued on October 7, 1930, and he was hanged on March 23, 1931. The last letter of Bhagat Singh to young political workers dated February 2, 1931, Bhagat Singh wrote, ‘Social reconstruction on new, i.e, Marxist, basis’. In the same letter, he strongly pitches for the formation of a communist party to carry out the task of revolution.

Anything and everything on social media is not true and we have asked you over and over again to verify facts before spreading any fake news!
