On August 15, 1947, India was celebrating Independence, but Hyderabad did not get Independence. For 13 months this region was tolerating the injustices and atrocities of the Nizam and Independence only came after Sardar Patel initiated Police Action. For many years, there was a demand from the people of this area that ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’ should be celebrated officially, but due to vote bank politics, those in power did not dare to celebrate Hyderabad Liberation Day. The tradition of celebrating ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’, started by Prime Minister Shri Modi on 17 September,2022, was celebrated in an even grander way in honour of the freedom fighters who liberated Hyderabad.
The Union Home and Cooperation Minister, Shri Amit Shah participated in the 75th Hyderabad Liberation Day celebrations in Telangana on 17 September 2022. On this occasion, the Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri Eknath Shinde, the Union Minister of Culture and Tourism Shri G. Kishan Reddy and the Union Home Secretary and many other dignitaries were present.
In his address, Shri Amit Shah said the purpose of celebrating Hyderabad Liberation Day is to revive the history of this liberation struggle and revived the tales of the known and unknown martyrs by igniting the flame of patriotism in the youth. This will revive the spirit of patriotism in our youth.
Shri Shah said the Iron Man Sardar Patel took the decision to launch ‘Operation Polo’ despite many difficulties and fulfilled the dream of a united India by making this region free. It was the Iron Man Sardar Patel who defeated the Nizam’s Army through police action and gave the people of this region the right to breathe in freedom.
The Union Home and Cooperation Minister said on this day in 1948, Telangana, Marathwada and Kalyan Karnataka became Independent and between 13 and 17 September 1948, many heroes were martyred ere during a 109 hour struggle. He said the Nizam and his Razakars tried to crush the people of the three regions by imposing harsh laws, committing unbearable injustice and mistreating women. Our people had agitated against these misdeeds and atrocities and eventually emerged victorious. Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has shown acceptance and paid tributeto the Hyderabad Liberation Movement by deciding to celebrate Hyderabad Liberation Day through an ‘Executive Order’.
He said the tradition of celebrating Hyderabad Liberation Day started by Shri Modi today, will be celebrated with even greater fervour in the future to honour all freedom fighters who liberated Hyderabad.
