Freedom Fighters’ sacrifice

On this Day: Contributions and Sacrifices in the Freedom Struggle

The struggle for independence in India was not merely a singular event but a tapestry woven with countless acts of bravery, sacrifice, and resistance against colonial oppression. March 5th holds a significant place in history as it witnessed pivotal moments and individuals who epitomized the spirit of defiance against British rule.

The Uprising of 1857: A Call for Freedom

During the Uprising of 1857, also known as the Indian Rebellion or the First War of Independence, individuals from various regions and backgrounds united in the quest for liberation from British dominance. Among them were figures like Captain Surjoo Singh, Captain Umrao Singh, Jahangir Khan, Mirza Kazim Ali, Sheikh Sukun, and Wajid Ali Khan, all hailing from Lucknow and neighboring areas. These brave souls organized rebel forces, led attacks against British strongholds, and fought valiantly against advancing British armies.

At Dilkushabagh, Lucknow, on March 5, 1858, these freedom fighters faced Colonel Muir’s British forces in a fierce battle. Despite heavy fighting, many like Captain Surjoo Singh, Captain Umrao Singh, Jahangir Khan, Mirza Kazim Ali, Sheikh Sukun, and Wajid Ali Khan laid down their lives, their sacrifice etching a poignant chapter in India’s struggle for independence.

Similarly, individuals from Garhakota, Saugor (Sagar), Madhya Pradesh, such as Ganput, Goolab, Jalleem, and Paharsingh, displayed remarkable courage and determination. They joined hands with local rebels, engaged British forces in multiple skirmishes, and stood steadfast against colonial oppression. However, their resistance met a tragic end as they were caught by British troops and executed by hanging on March 5, 1858.

Continuing the Fight: Jagdeo Rao Patil and Jahoor Gurariah

The legacy of resistance transcended generations, as evidenced by the contributions of individuals like Jagdeo Rao Patil and Jahoor Gurariah. Born on March 5, 1900, Jagdeo Rao Patil actively participated in the Civil Disobedience Movement of 1930. His commitment to the cause led to his arrest and imprisonment, yet he remained undeterred, continuing his activism through journalism and political leadership until his mysterious death on March 17, 1939.

Similarly, Jahoor Gurariah, a former soldier of the English East India Company army, defied colonial authority during the Uprising of 1857. Advocating for liberation, he encouraged fellow Sepoys to abandon their service and revolt against British rule. However, his efforts were met with capture and condemnation, as he was sentenced to transportation for life on March 5, 1858, ultimately perishing in detention on November 1, 1858, in the Andaman Islands.


March 5th stands as a testament to the indomitable spirit of those who fought tirelessly for India’s freedom. Their sacrifices, courage, and unwavering resolve laid the foundation for a nation’s independence. As we commemorate their bravery, let us remember their legacy and honor their contributions in shaping the destiny of a nation.
