National Desk: On a somber January 30th, India remembered Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, on the 76th anniversary of his assassination. Across the political spectrum, leaders bowed their heads in reverence for the iconic figure whose legacy of non-violent resistance continues to inspire millions.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the way, taking to social media to express his deep respect. “We remember Pujya Bapu on his Punya Tithi,” he wrote, alongside a poignant image of Gandhi with folded hands. “His sacrifices, along with those of countless martyrs, illuminate the path for us to serve the people and fulfill their vision for our nation.”

Union Home Minister Amit Shah lauded Gandhi’s unwavering principles, stating, “Salute to Mahatma Gandhi ji on his death anniversary. He awakened the spirit of self-reliance in the hearts of our countrymen by walking the path of truth and non-violence. His messages of peace and harmony remain relevant even today, guiding us to dedicate ourselves to the nation.”

BJP National President JP Nadda emphasized the timeless nature of Gandhi’s ideals, saying, “I pay my tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, the priest of truth and non-violence, who paved the way for India’s independence through self-reliance. The paths shown by Bapu are relevant in every era. His ideals and thoughts will forever inspire us.”

Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy transcends borders and ideologies. His philosophy of Satyagraha, or non-violent resistance, has influenced countless civil rights movements around the world, inspiring leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela. In today’s complex and often divided world, Gandhi’s message of peace, tolerance, and social justice continues to offer a path towards a more just and equitable future.

Martyrs’ Day serves as a stark reminder of the struggle for freedom and the sacrifices made by countless individuals like Gandhi. His assassination on this day in 1948 by Nathuram Godse underscores the ongoing fight for justice and equality.

The annual commemoration of Martyrs’ Day serves as a powerful reminder of Mahatma Gandhi’s sacrifices and those of countless others who dedicated their lives to the cause of freedom. His unwavering commitment to truth, non-violence, and self-reliance remains a beacon of hope in the 21st century, offering a blueprint for building a more just and peaceful world.

India’s leaders echoed this sentiment, urging the nation to carry the torch of Gandhi’s ideals forward. As Prime Minister Modi aptly stated, “Let us reaffirm our commitment to building a strong, prosperous, and inclusive India, a tribute to the dreams of Bapu and all the martyrs who laid down their lives for our nation.”

This Martyrs’ Day, let us not only remember the sacrifices of the past but also work towards building a future that embodies Gandhi’s values of peace, tolerance, and equality.
