Ram Prasad Bismil and Ashfaqullah Khan were hanged to death by the British


At a function organised by Aam Insaf Muslim Samaj (AIMS), the book ‘Pandit Ram Prasad Bismil and Ashfaqullah Khan’ was released here on Tuesday by social activist and Rashtriya Seva Samithi (RASS) general secretary G. Muniratnam, a ‘Padma Shri’ awardee. The trilingual book focussing on the life history of the fiery revolutionaries, who were hanged to death by the British government, is available in Telugu, English and Urdu for the benefit of readers. The Telugu version was written by noted journalist Syed Naseer Ahamed, while B.V.K. Purnanandam translated it into English. The duo shot to fame with the Kakori train incident, executed by Hindustan Republic Association in August 1925, after which the British regime arrested the two and awarded death sentence to them.

Even before they were to be hanged, the bosom friends gave an immortal call to Indians to stay united and move ahead, transcending the barriers of religion, caste and region.

AIMS president Shamsher Syed and secretary Rahamathulla Sharif appealed to the public to transcend the narrow communal barriers. The book is priced at ₹25.
