On April 8, 1929, the Viceroy was introducing the Public Security Bill in the Central Assembly of Delhi. After that the bill was to become law. The gallery was packed with spectators, and as soon as the bill was introduced, there was a loud bang in the house. Two men chanted “Revolution Zindabad” and hurled a bomb in the middle of the house. The bomb was dropped by Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh and Batukeshwar Dutt. Care was also taken not to injure anyone while dropping the bomb. As the bomb was dropped, a loud noise came and darkness enveloped the assembly hall. The whole building was in an uproar. Panicked people started running outside.However, both the bomb-throwing revolutionaries were standing there. Raising the slogan of Inquilab Zindabad, some pamphlets were also thrown in the House. “Explosions are needed to make deaf people hear,” he wrote. Both handed themselves over to the police. After this feat, Bhagat Singh and Batukeshwar Dutt became the heroes of the Indian youth.
Shaheed Bhagat Singh was not in favor of bloodshed at all. He tried to oppose the British government by throwing fake bombs in the assembly against the Public Safety Bill and the TradeDisputes Bill. So, on April 8, 1929, Sardar Bhagat Singh and Batukeshwar Dutt hurled fake bombs at a vacant space in the Central Hall of the Central Assembly and chanted slogans of “Revolution Zindabad” while throwing leaflets.
What were the bills that were bombed?
The revolutionaries were opposing the Public Safety Bill and the Trade Disputes Bill. The Trade Disputes Bill had already been passed, which banned all strikes by workers. The Public Safety Bill would have given the government the right to detain suspects without trial. Both bills were intended to stifle voices against the British government.
Batukeshwar Dutt was sentenced to life imprisonment and Bhagat Singh was hanged
Bhagat Singh and Batukeshwar Dutt were found guilty in the Vidhan Sabha bomb blasts. Both were sentenced to life imprisonment and Batukeshwar Dutt was sent to Kala Pani Jail. Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru were also convicted of Sanders’ murder. On 7 October 1930, it was decided that Bhagat Singh, Suakhdev and Rajguru should be hanged on 24 March 1931, but out of fear of public outrage, the government executed these heroes on 23 March.
