Shaheed Diwas 2021 Wishes and messages:

The presence of the nation stands on the foundation that has been laid on the lives of the freedom fighters. These martyrs sacrificed their lives to ensure that the future generation gets the freedom from chains of slavery.

These martyrs of patriotism gave their lives for an idea.

They may torture my body, break my bones, even kill me. Then they will have my dead body, but not my obedience.

The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the nation.

The martyr sacrifices themselves entirely in vain. Or rather not in vain; for they make the selfish more selfish, the lazy more lazy, the narrow narrower.

The tyrant dies and his rule is over, the martyr dies and his rule begins.

A martyr can never cooperate with death, go to death in a way that they’re not trying to escape.

The people who have made history are martyrs.

Martyrdom is a price one pays to ensure freedom for coming generations. Salute to all martyrs who ensured our freedom by sacrificing their lives.

The martyr cannot be dishonoured. Every lash inflicted is a tongue of fame; every prison a more illustrious abode.
