Sukhdev Thapar, the forgotten men who shook up the British Raj, was born on today in 1907. He was a famous Indian revolutionary who played a major role in India’s struggle for Independence. Sukhdev was born in Ludhiana, Punjab to Ramlal Thapar and Ralli Devi in a Khatri family.
Sukhdev took an active part in several revolutionary activities and was a senior member of Hindustani Socialist Republican Association. He is best remembered for his daring yet courageous attack in the Lahore Conspiracy.
His name has been instilled in the history of the war of Indian Independence. He was a collaborator of Bhagat Singh and Shivaram Rajguru in the assassination of Deputy Superintendent of Police, J. P. Saunders in 1928 in response to the violent death of the veteran leader Lala Lajpat Rai. They were hanged on 23rd March 1931 at the age of 23.
Mintage World pays tribute to this great hero who readily gave up his life to pave the path for the independence of his nation. Though dead, He is still living in the history of humanity and remembered as prominent faces of the freedom struggle.
Sukhdev is featured on an Rs5.00 commemorative stamp issued in 2013.
