There was also the Khadga and the shield in this war, in a short time, in the short time, non-violence and sloppy slogans and songs were dominated . Everyone was busy only in the pigeon of peace and in the charkha of non-violence etc. But at that time, there was a big movement of preparations in history.
There was an arrow too, there was also a sword, it was fought with khad and shield that war. Yes, the villains who were forgotten by the inexperienced crime of counterfeit writers know about Vijay Singh. Today is the sacrifice day. Even before 1857, the hero of the independence was not given the heroic position in the history books. In general, the struggle of independence in India is considered to be started from 1857; But the truth is that since the invasions of foreigners and the aliens started coming to India, this struggle had just begun.
The self-respecting heroes of India have dug dust from Mughal, Turk, Hun, Shaka, Pathan, Baloch and Portuguese to the British. One such hero was King Vijay Singh. Haridwar is a world famous pilgrim center in Uttarakhand state. Here the Ganges enters the plain area, leaving the shelter of the mountains. In this district there is a village named Kunja Bahadurpur. The brave king Vijay Singh here started a struggle of independence against the British in 1824 long before 1857.
Kunja Bahadurpur was a part of Lantaura principality in those days. There were 44 villages in that time. After the death of King Ramdial Singh of Landhaura in 1813, his son Raja Vijay Singh took over the reins of the princely state. Often all the Indian kings and landlords were accepting the subordination of the British; But Gangaputra king Vijay Singh was made of some other soil. Instead of bowing down to foreign and heresy British, King Vijay Singh, he heard the order to get out of his kingdom
The valiant general Kalyan Singh was also the right hand of the king. On the suggestion of the Senapati in 1822 AD, King Vijay Singh ordered his people not to give the money to the British, to remove all symbols symbolized by the British State, to take the treasures of the tahsil and to capture all the prisoners from the prison. Get rid of it. The people were also proud of their king and commander. Following these orders, they slept in the British. The British thought that if such a practice continued, revolt would spread everywhere.
So, first of all, he explained to King Vijay Singh and offered a treaty to him; But the self-respecting king rejected it. Now the two sides started preparing for battle. On the night of September 7, 1824, the British attacked the village Kunja Bahadurpur. His army also included the Ninth Battalion of the Gurkha Regiment, which had fought several wars. King Vijay Singh and commander Kalyan Singh knew that the British had a lot of army and they also have weapons of modern type;
But they decided to fight rather than bending. Under the leadership of Raja Vijay Singh, the heroes of the village took a furore for several days; But finally, on October 3, 1824, the king received Veergati in the battleground. From this, the British army came down on the arbitrariness. They did not show any mercy to women, men, children, old men, while making tremendous clashes in the village. They arrested hundreds of people. 152 people were hanged in the same day, hanging on the golden orchard tree in the village.
The horrific massacre is mentioned in the then government gazette. How wonder that the two-four-day prisoners were given freedom fighter certificates and pensions; But no one remembers the brave heroes of King Vijay Singh and Kunja Bahadurpur, who had sacrificed his life. The reason for the defeat of Indians was primarily lack of modern weapons, they mostly fought with arms like sword, spearheaded guns. While the British army had modern rifles (303 bore) and carbine at that time.
On this, the Indians fought bravely, and they fought the British till the last breath. According to the figures of the British government, 40 of the 152 freedom fighter immortals were arrested. But in reality the number of martyrs was very high. The martyrdom of the Indian revolutionaries also did not fill the heart of the English army. After the battle, they also dropped the walls of the Kujah fort.
The British army arrived in Dehradun celebrating the celebration of victory, he also took with him two chefts of revolutionaries, Kalyan Singh Kaa Singh and Vijaya Singh’s breasts. These toes were placed on the Purdah of Dehradun. In order to disturb Indians, the British Government hung Rajaya Singh’s chest and Kalyan Singh’s head in an iron pigeon and hung on the gate of Dehra Dun jail. In the initial stage of Kalyan Singh’s war, the revolution ended in its infancy due to martyrdom.
Captain Young had accepted after the battle of Kunja that if this revolt had not been suppressed, then in the time of two days, this war would have gained support of thousands of other people. Today, the Sudarshan family reiterates the supremacy of the great freedom fighter on his sacrifice day, and his promise to keep his promise of eternal life forever. Raja Vijay Singh Ji remains immortal.
