Chandra shekhar azad history
Azad was brought into the Indian public development at a youthful age. At the point when captured by the police at age 15 while taking an interest in Mohandas K. Gandhi’s noncooperation development (1920–22) at Banares (presently Varanasi), he gave his name as Azad (Urdu: “Free” or “Freed”) and his location as “jail.” Although due to his age he was not detained, he was given an extreme flagellating by the police. The Indian National (Congress Party) before long lionized him, and he acquired fame among the Indian public.
Azad was disillusioned by Gandhi’s suspension of the noncooperation development in February 1922, after a few cops had been killed by a progressive crowd at Chauri Chaura. Joining the extreme Hindustan Republican Association (HRA), Azad took an interest in a few rough wrongdoings, quite the Kakori train theft (1925) and the vengeance executing of a British cop (1928).
Known for his hierarchical abilities, Azad assumed a vital part in revamping the HRA as the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association after a large portion of the HRA’s individuals had been executed or detained. His violations had made him a needed man, yet Azad had the option to evade the police and its sources for quite a while. As indicated by Jawaharlal Nehru’s self-portrayal, it was during this time of underground presence that Azad met Nehru in mid 1931 to enquire whether—under the conversations being held that brought about the marking of the Gandhi-Irwin Pact in March—the progressives could expect a reasonable arrangement prompting their fair recovery.
Decided never to be caught by police, Azad was continually progressing. On February 27, 1931, Azad masterminded to meet a progressive at Allahabad’s Alfred Park (presently Azad Park). He was deceived to the police, who encompassed him when he entered the recreation center. A weapon fight resulted, in which two cops were injured, and Azad was lethally shot.
