Chandrashekhar Azad

In India, freedom struggle happened almost for a centuries. Our Indian men & women faced a lot of problems by British Government & Dutch people. After a united struggle of our freedom fighters only now we can enjoy our freedom living in India. We should remember each one sacrifice their lives for our current free life.  Salute to them! Here is some of the major freedom fighters in India did a major contribute to our nation.

1.Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Date of Birth : Oct 2, 1869

Date of Death : Jan 30, 1948

Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi) was born into a Hindu Modh family in Porbandar, Gujarat, India in 1869. He was the son of Karamchand Gandhi, the diwan (Chief Minister) of Porbandar, and Putlibai, Karamchand’s fourth wife (his previous three wives had died in childbirth), a Hindu of the Pranami Vaishnava order. Growing up with a devout mother and surrounded by the Jain influences of Gujarat, Gandhi learned from an early age the tenets of non-injury to living beings, vegetarianism, fasting for self-purification, and mutual tolerance between members of various creeds and sects. He was born into the vaishya, or business, caste.

In May 1883, at the age of 13, Gandhi was married through his parents’ arrangement to Kasturba Makhanji (also spelled “Kasturbai” or known as “Ba”), who was the same age as he. They had four sons: Harilal Gandhi, born in 1888; Manilal Gandhi, born in 1892; Ramdas Gandhi, born in 1897; and Devdas Gandhi, born in 1900. Gandhi was a mediocre student in his youth at Porbandar and later Rajkot. He barely passed the matriculation exam for the University of Bombay in 1887, where he joined Samaldas College. He was also unhappy at the college, because his family wanted him to become a barrister. He leapt at the opportunity to study in England, which he viewed as “a land of philosophers and poets, the very centre of civilization.” Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was a major political and spiritual leader of India, and the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer and perfector of Satyagraha – the resistance of tyranny through mass civil disobedience strongly founded upon ahimsa (total non-violence) – which led India to independence, and has inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.

Gandhi is commonly known and addressed in India and across the world as Mahatma Gandhi and as Bapu. Though his elders objected, Gandhi could not be prevented from leaving; and it is said that his mother, a devout woman, made him promise that he would keep away from wine, women, and meat during his stay abroad. Gandhi left behind his son Harilal, then a few months old. In London, Gandhi encountered theosophists, vegetarians, and others who were disenchanted not only with industrialism, but with the legacy of Enlightenment thought. They themselves represented the fringe elements of English society. Gandhi was powerfully attracted to them, as he was to the texts of the major religious traditions; and ironically it is in London that he was introduced to the Bhagavad Gita. Here, too, Gandhi showed determination and single-minded pursuit of his purpose, and accomplished his objective of finishing his degree from the Inner Temple.

He was called to the bar in 1891, and even enrolled in the High Court of London; but later that year he left for India. After one year of a none too successful law practice, Gandhi decided to accept an offer from an Indian businessman in South Africa, Dada Abdulla, to join him as a legal adviser. Unbeknown to him, this was to become an exceedingly lengthy stay, and altogether Gandhi was to stay in South Africa for over twenty years. The Indians who had been living in South Africa were without political rights, and were generally known by the derogatory name of ‘coolies’. Gandhi himself came to an awareness of the frightening force and fury of European racism, and how far Indians were from being considered full human beings, when he thrown out of a first-class railway compartment car, though he held a first-class ticket, at Pietermaritzburg. From this political awakening Gandhi was to emerge as the leader of the Indian community, and it is in South Africa that he first coined the term satyagraha to signify his theory and practice of non-violent resistance. Gandhi was to describe himself preeminently as a votary or seeker of satya (truth), which could not be attained other than through ahimsa (non-violence, love) and brahmacharya (celibacy, striving towards God). Gandhi conceived of his own life as a series of experiments to forge the use of satyagraha in such a manner as to make the oppressor and the oppressed alike recognize their common bonding and humanity: as he recognized, freedom is only freedom when it is indivisible. In his book ‘Satyagraha in South Africa’ he was to detail the struggles of the Indians to claim their rights, and their resistance to oppressive legislation and executive measures, such as the imposition of a poll tax on them, or the declaration by the government that all non-Christian marriages were to be construed as invalid. In 1909, on a trip back to India, Gandhi authored a short treatise entitled ‘Hind Swaraj’ or Indian Home Rule, where he all but initiated the critique, not only of industrial civilization, but of modernity in all its aspects.

Gandhi returned to India in early 1915, and was never to leave the country again except for a short trip that took him to Europe in 1931. Though he was not completely unknown in India, Gandhi followed the advice of his political mentor, Gokhale, and took it upon himself to acquire a familiarity with Indian conditions. He traveled widely for one year. Over the next few years, he was to become involved in numerous local struggles, such as at Champaran in Bihar, where workers on indigo plantations complained of oppressive working conditions, and at Ahmedabad, where a dispute had broken out between management and workers at textile mills. His interventions earned Gandhi a considerable reputation, and his rapid ascendancy to the helm of nationalist politics is signified by his leadership of the opposition to repressive legislation (known as the “Rowlatt Acts”) in 1919.

His saintliness was not uncommon, except in someone like him who immersed himself in politics, and by this time he had earned from no less a person than Rabindranath Tagore, India’s most well-known writer, the title of Mahatma, or ‘Great Soul’. When ‘disturbances’ broke out in the Punjab, leading to the massacre of a large crowd of unarmed Indians at the Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar and other atrocities, Gandhi wrote the report of the Punjab Congress Inquiry Committee. Over the next two years, Gandhi initiated the non-cooperation movement, which called upon Indians to withdraw from British institutions, to return honors conferred by the British, and to learn the art of self-reliance; though the British administration was at places paralyzed, the movement was suspended in February 1922 when a score of Indian policemen were brutally killed by a large crowd at Chauri Chaura, a small market town in the United Provinces.

Gandhi himself was arrested shortly thereafter, tried on charges of sedition, and sentenced to imprisonment for six years. At The Great Trial, as it is known to his biographers, Gandhi delivered a masterful indictment of British rule. Owing to his poor health, Gandhi was released from prison in 1925. Over the following years, he worked hard to preserve Hindu-Muslim relations, and in 1924 he observed, from his prison cell, a 21-day fast when Hindu-Muslim riots broke out at Kohat, a military barracks on the Northwest Frontier. This was to be of his many major public fasts, and in 1932 he was to commence the so-called Epic Fast unto death, since he thought of “separate electorates” for the oppressed class of what were then called untouchables (or Harijans in Gandhi’s vocabulary, and dalits in today’s language) as a retrograde measure meant to produce permanent divisions within Hindu society. Gandhi earned the hostility of Ambedkar, the leader of the untouchables, but few doubted that Gandhi was genuinely interested in removing the serious disabilities from which they suffered, just as no one doubt that Gandhi never accepted the argument that Hindus and Muslims constituted two separate elements in Indian society.

These were some of the concerns most prominent in Gandhi’s mind, but he was also to initiate a constructive programme for social reform. Gandhi had ideas — mostly sound — on every subject, from hygiene and nutrition to education and labor, and he relentlessly pursued his ideas in one of the many newspapers which he founded. Indeed, were Gandhi known for nothing else in India, he would still be remembered as one of the principal figures in the history of Indian journalism. In early 1930, as the nationalist movement was revived, the Indian National Congress, the preeminent body of nationalist opinion, declared that it would now be satisfied with nothing short of complete independence (purna swaraj). Once the clarion call had been issued, it was perforce necessary to launch a movement of resistance against British rule. On March 2, Gandhi addressed a letter to the Viceroy, Lord Irwin, informing him that unless Indian demands were met, he would be compelled to break the “salt laws”.

Predictably, his letter was received with bewildered amusement, and accordingly Gandhi set off, on the early morning of March 12, with a small group of followers towards Dandi on the sea. They arrived there on April 5th: Gandhi picked up a small lump of natural salt, and so gave the signal to hundreds of thousands of people to similarly defy the law, since the British exercised a monopoly on the production and sale of salt. This was the beginning of the civil disobedience movement: Gandhi himself was arrested, and thousands of others were also hauled into jail. It is to break this deadlock that Irwin agreed to hold talks with Gandhi, and subsequently the British agreed to hold a Round Table Conference in London to negotiate the possible terms of Indian independence. Gandhi went to London in 1931 and met some of his admirers in Europe, but the negotiations proved inconclusive. On his return to India, he was once again arrested. For the next few years, Gandhi would be engaged mainly in the constructive reform of Indian society.

He had vowed upon undertaking the salt march that he would not return to Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad, where he had made his home, if India did not attain its independence, and in the mid-1930s he established himself in a remote village, in the dead center of India, by the name of Segaon (known as Sevagram). It is to this obscure village, which was without electricity or running water, that India’s political leaders made their way to engage in discussions with Gandhi about the future of the independence movement, and it is here that he received visitors such as Margaret Sanger, the well-known American proponent of birth-control. Gandhi also continued to travel throughout the country, taking him wherever his services were required. One such visit was to the Northwest Frontier, where he had in the imposing Pathan, Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan (known by the endearing term of “Frontier Gandhi”, and at other times as Badshah Khan), a fervent disciple. At the outset of World War II, Gandhi and the Congress leadership assumed a position of neutrality: while clearly critical of fascism, they could not find it in themselves to support British imperialism. Gandhi was opposed by Subhas Chandra Bose, who had served as President of the Congress, and who took to the view that Britain’s moment of weakness was India’s moment of opportunity. When Bose ran for President of the Congress against Gandhi’s wishes and triumphed against Gandhi’s own candidate, he found that Gandhi still exercised influence over the Congress Working Committee, and that it was near impossible to run the Congress if the cooperation of Gandhi and his followers could not be procured. Bose tendered his resignation, and shortly thereafter was to make a dramatic escape from India to find support among the Japanese and the Nazis for his plans to liberate India. In 1942, Gandhi issued the last call for independence from British rule. On the grounds of what is now known as August Kranti Maidan, he delivered a stirring speech, asking every Indian to lay down their life, if necessary, in the cause of freedom.

He gave them this mantra: “Do or Die”; at the same time, he asked the British to ‘Quit India’. The response of the British government was to place Gandhi under arrest, and virtually the entire Congress leadership was to find itself behind bars, not to be released until after the conclusion of the war. A few months after Gandhi and Kasturba had been placed in confinement in the Aga Khan’s Palace in Pune, Kasturba passed away: this was a terrible blow to Gandhi, following closely on the heels of the death of his private secretary of many years, the gifted Mahadev Desai. In the period from 1942 to 1945, the Muslim League, which represented the interest of certain Muslims and by now advocated the creation of a separate homeland for Muslims, increasingly gained the attention of the British, and supported them in their war effort. The new government that came to power in Britain under Clement Atlee was committed to the independence of India, and negotiations for India’s future began in earnest. Sensing that the political leaders were now craving for power, Gandhi largely distanced himself from the negotiations. He declared his opposition to the vivisection of India.

It is generally conceded, even by his detractors, that the last years of his life were in some respects his finest. He walked from village to village in riot-torn Noakhali, where Hindus were being killed in retaliation for the killing of Muslims in Bihar, and nursed the wounded and consoled the widowed; and in Calcutta he came to constitute, in the famous words of the last viceroy, Mountbatten, a “one-man boundary force” between Hindus and Muslims. The ferocious fighting in Calcutta came to a halt, almost entirely on account of Gandhi’s efforts, and even his critics were wont to speak of the Gandhi’s ‘miracle of Calcutta’. When the moment of freedom came, on 15 August 1947, Gandhi was nowhere to be seen in the capital, though Nehru and the entire Constituent Assembly were to salute him as the architect of Indian independence, as the ‘father of the nation’. The last few months of Gandhi’s life were to be spent mainly in the capital city of Delhi. There he divided his time between the ‘Bhangi colony’, where the sweepers and the lowest of the low stayed, and Birla House, the residence of one of the wealthiest men in India and one of the benefactors of Gandhi’s ashrams. Hindu and Sikh refugees had streamed into the capital from what had become Pakistan, and there was much resentment, which easily translated into violence, against Muslims. It was partly in an attempt to put an end to the killings in Delhi, and more generally to the bloodshed following the partition, which may have taken the lives of as many as 1 million people, besides causing the dislocation of no fewer than 11 million, that Gandhi was to commence the last fast unto death of his life. The fast was terminated when representatives of all the communities signed a statement that they were prepared to live in “perfect amity”, and that the lives, property, and faith of the Muslims would be safeguarded.

A few days later, a bomb exploded in Birla House where Gandhi was holding his evening prayers, but it caused no injuries. However, his assassin, a Marathi Chitpavan Brahmin by the name of Nathuram Godse, was not so easily deterred. Gandhi, quite characteristically, refused additional security, and no one could defy his wish to be allowed to move around unhindered. In the early evening hours of 30 January 1948, Gandhi met with India’s Deputy Prime Minister and his close associate in the freedom struggle, Vallabhai Patel, and then proceeded to his prayers. That evening, as Gandhi’s time-piece, which hung from one of the folds of his dhoti (loin-cloth), was to reveal to him, he was uncharacteristically late to his prayers, and he fretted about his inability to be punctual. At 10 minutes past 5 o’clock, with one hand each on the shoulders of Abha and Manu, who were known as his ‘walking sticks’, Gandhi commenced his walk towards the garden where the prayer meeting was held. As he was about to mount the steps of the podium, Gandhi folded his hands and greeted his audience with a namaskar; at that moment, a young man came up to him and roughly pushed aside Manu. Nathuram Godse bent down in the gesture of an obeisance, took a revolver out of his pocket, and shot Gandhi three times in his chest. Bloodstains appeared over Gandhi’s white woolen shawl; his hands still folded in a greeting, Gandhi blessed his assassin: He Ram! He Ram! As Gandhi fell, his faithful time-piece struck the ground, and the hands of the watch came to a standstill. They showed, as they had done before, the precise time: 5:12 P.M.

      I really agree with you Vinay. He put his life in danger for many times. Even in those years he travelled to Berlin,Russia,Japan by Submarine . Those days it used to take 3 months.

      Why all this was required for him. Having got married to Austrian and being a highly qualified and rank student in ICS. Gandhiji himself has mentioned him as “Patriots Patriot”. He coined Jai Hind. His music portrayed in International conference was later become of our National Anthem music.

      Only Indian who dared Britishes. Even the trials of his INA in 1946 made our British indian army Indians to realize about their duties. This helped us to achieve Independence. It was accepted by then British prime minister Atlee.

      He is all times great. He was not given the due respect that he was deserved.

      • Hello Sachin, I really agree that Nethaji is number 1 in the list because of the following reason:
        THE Indian struggle for Independence saw many heroes emerge. Some took the path of non-violence like Gandhiji, some chose the political arena like Nehru, some fought battles like Rani Lakshmibai, somebecame spiritual seekers like Sri Aurobindo and some took to literature like Subramaniya Bharati. But if there was one person who managed to leave
        his mark at all avenues of the freedom struggle, it was Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

        In the book The Last Years of British India, Michael Edwardes, the
        distinguished British historian of the Raj, wrote of Netaji Subhash
        Chandra Bose :

        “Only one outstanding personality of India took a different and violent path, and in a sense India owes more to him than to any other man even though he seemed to be a failure but he is not failure as per the views of great historians.”

        Aready used by the Provisional Government Azad Hind (Free India) formed by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose anthem Jana Gana Mana was adopted as the national anthem of the State of India, as the tricolor of the Indian national flag.

        The generals of the Indian National Army were brought by the British colonial power in court, they hanged 3 INA majors in 1946. This was the major mistake British has done. Because of this, there was a nationwide protest.

        In addition to mass demonstrations there was a mutiny in the Royal Navy.
        First Indian nationalism on Indian soldiers had jumped previously regarded as brave and loyal. The British therefore issued a general amnesty for the armed forces personnel.

        Many historians belevied that this was the main reason for Indias Independence though there were several other reasons.

    • it may be correct. But the ranking given here is based on the activities to serve for our freedom. Anyway we revised our ranking as our visitor’s thoughts.

    • Hello Vinay and Sachin, I really agree with you. Both Gandhiji and Subhas chandra Bose were followed by masses. Nethaji is considerd to be greatest leader ever world has produced for Japanese. He is the true leader,an visionary. He made the concept of Army, otherwise our country would have been like Africa. He is selfless great legend for which he has special person of millions of Indians.

      • HI hello u know the hand behind Nethajis vision is swatyantrya veer Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, once Nethajis and saverkar were on same Dias, it was a time of secound world war. savarker asked nethaji to bild a new army by making friend ship with enemies of bretish aftar a few days Nethaji was not seen any where evry body was afride but saverker said nethaji is doing his work. after few weeks
        Nethaji was in germany he met the hitler later he went to japan and bilt INA

      • Hi RamKrishna,
        I am Viraj.
        I read a lot of Freedom books and found this facts that during the first election in Congress (for PM), Sardar Patel had most votes. Pt. Nehru threatened Gandhi for making him PM or else he will break Congress and leak inner secrets to British..

    • yes you r right mr.vinay. i love subhash chandra bhose. He is the real Hero

    • Please don’t hurt Vinay. Everybody has his own point of view. According to him, he is right…

  58. Top 5 Freedom Fighters –

    1) Bhagat Singh
    2) Chandrashekhar Azad
    3) Sardar Patel
    4) Rajendra Prasad
    5) Lal Bahadur Shastri

    Pandit Nehru is not a Freedom Fighter because he was the one who started politics. During Election, Sardar Patel had the most votes in Congress. Pandit Nehru threatened Gandhi to make him PM or he will break the congress. (By which, British wouldn’t leave.) Gandhi is also not a Freedom Fighter because his point was only FREEDOM. He did not think what will happen later.
    Thank You.

    Thank You.

    P.S. Somebody comment on this one !!! (Nice comments, relating to subject).

  60. Gandhi do not deserve to be in first place.He is the person entered in the ending.

  61. Bhagat Singh should before Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi because of his sign Bhagat Singh died.

  62. where is MANGAL PANDEY….THE FIRST BORN REVOLUTIONIST.
    AND IN VICTORY OF FREEDOM…IT WAS BOSE….SUBHASH CHANDRA BOSE..AT FIRST

  63. Amar kumar

    guys you all are wrong ,the first freedom fighter was Matadin bhangi{valmiki} and the second one mangal pandey in 1847….

  64. but i am talking about freedom fighter…..not talking about RAVOLUTIONIST

  65. I don’t understand why all of you are fighting about the ranking here. the fact is that India is a free country and we have to appreciate all of their efforts because they were united in their cause to making India a better place.
    Can you say that we can rank Indians because of their love for India? NO, we all love India equally and do our best in our own way to make it a better place. If all Indians think like this about ranking, India will never get anywhere in the world!

  66. i think Nethaji should be top person of freedom struggle

  67. this is not a true freedom fighters these are only politician true freedom fighters which are fight and sacrifice of life only for freedom.

  68. Gandhiji and Pt.Nerhu are not Freedom fighters…….

  73. nice but a little improvement is required
    i agree with ajay 100 percent

  74. thank u freedom fighters !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JAI HIND !!!VANDE MATARAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  75. I also agree with all of you must have this sequence for top 10 freedom figher

  76. I am unable to accept the Heading as “Top 10 Freedom Fighters in India” which should be “Top 10 Freedom Fighters in North India” or “Top 10 Freedom Fighters in India other than South”. What a partiality!!!! Apart from those 10, there were number of freedom fighters who have given their lives for the country’s freedom. I respect all the Freedom Fighters. There should not be a comparison between the Freedom Fighters like Top Fighters or Bottom Fighters. Respect all.

  77. yes i agree gandhi and all r real freedom fighter………….. JAI HIND

  78. I love my India. My good Luck I born in India……!
    I love you India……!

  79. Jwahar Lal Nehru should not be at 3rd actually he should not be in the list!!!! wat about Ram Prasad Bismil , Ashfaqulla Khan ??

  80. hi! freinds can i join you?

  81. hey guys lets talk about chandrasekhar ajad

  82. Jawaharlal Nehru was not a freedom fighter……he was a pilitical agent before independece, power broker, who created the cancer called Kashmir. He sideligned Gandhi & Netaji for this post of PM and was the silent force to kill Netaji in Russia.

    To know Netaji, read his facts on Wekipedia and any other bolgs of credibility !!! Unbelievable Courage & Sacrifice………..which is why Nehru murdered him !!! With Netaji around, the ‘ english middleman ‘ Nehru would wiped our of any political circles in India.
