India celebrates Shaheed Diwas on March 23 every year to pay its respects to Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru, who were stripped off their esteem and executed before dawn.

New Delhi: On 88th martyrdom of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru, India commemorates its fallen sons who relentlessly struggled for the country's freedom from the British colonisers. India celebrates Shaheed Diwas on March 23 every year to pay its respects to the trio who were stripped off their esteem and executed before dawn for their alleged involvement in the killing of John Saunders. In October 1928, the trio confused Saunders with JA Scott, a police officer who was believed to have thrashed Lala Lajpat Rai during a lathi charge.

On Saturday, social media was flooded with messages of patriotism and ‘Shaheed Diwas’, ‘Bhagat Singh’ and ‘Sukhdev’ emerged as top trends on Twitter. Some tweets have been enlisted below.
