Chandrasekhar Azad's Jayanti today
Azad's specialty was that neither he could oppress others nor tolerate oppression. In 1919, the Jallianwala Bagh Kard of Amritsar had shocked them. Chandrashekhar was studying at that time. When Mahatma Gandhi ended the Non-Cooperation Movement, Chandra Shekhar along with hundreds of students came to the streets. He was arrested for the first time during the student movement, then he got a 15-day sentence.
How Chandrasekhar got the name Azad?
When the 15-year-old Azad was presented before the judge, he said that my name is Azad, my father's name is freedom and my address is jail, this resulted in the judge and Azad was sentenced to 15 years, hence his name Free Azad
