A lecture on freedom fighter and martyr Bhagat Singh’s ideology was organised by Shaheed Bhagat Singh Sports and Cultural Club and Naujawan Bharat Sabha at Sunet library here on the eve of his 108th birth anniversary.

“You could be a person with a feudal or casteist mindset and still profess to be a fan of Bhagat Singh. The important thing to ponder about is how much of Bhagat Singh’s ideology we have actually adopted,” said professor Jatinder Singh at the lecture. It is the time to think beyond Bhagat Singh because the circumstances have changed and we should analyse our social and economic conditions again, added prof Singh.

Further, he added that at the present time, fundamentalist forces are active in social and political circles and the followers of Bhagat Singh have to be more responsible and sharp as the time to counter the fascist forces has come.

The president of Shaheed Bhagat Singh Sports and Cultural Club, Harpreet Singh said, “It is our responsibility to fulfil the dreams of our martyrs and we are trying to spread awareness about Bhagat Singh’s ideology.”

Blood Donation Camp

The Karantikari Shaheed Bhagat Singh Sewa Dal organised a blood donation camp in the memory of martyr Bhagat Singh and more than 200 people donated blood at the camp. The 17th blood donation camp by the organization was held under the leadership of president Sarvan Attari.

“Our martyrs did a lot for us and it is our responsibility to do something for our country. Our youngsters should leave the path of drugs and other social evils,” Attari said. The other members of the club-Ranjit Singh, Rajwinder Singh Sekhon, Ashok Mittal, Rakesh Chaudhry and Sandeep Verma were also present.
