THE HINDU FOUNDATION
Delhi-based NGO Hindu Foundation has taken an initiative to find such martyrs in entire country and help their families get recognition from the government. It started a campaign titled ‘Shaheed Express’ led by city-based youngster Sandeep Gupta that will travel the entire country.
For Hindu Foundation, patriotism doesn’t mean blindly following the conventional idea of just loving our nation, for us, it means that we own up, we take our responsibilities seriously and show our love by making the nation better in whatever way we can.
As Bhagat Singh rightly said: The sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting stone of Ideas. Today Hindu Foundation with a concept of recognizing martyrs and freedom fighters envisions connecting the entire nation and relishing patriotism amongst every Indian. The Hindu Foundation believes that the feeling of patriotism and the sacrifice towards the nation is the biggest religion of any country
Shaheed Express will cover the households of 70 such martyrs, not only in India but also to countries which were earlier part of Akhand Bharat and gather a handful of sand from the their courtyards (aangan), collecting it in a form of Asthi Kalash. The Shaheed Express seeks to mark a journey that reveals the saga of the sacrifice and our salute to those martyrs.
