Lahore: A Pakistan-based non-profit organization has urged its country and India to confer the highest civilian award on freedom fighter Bhagat Singh. The Bhagat Singh Memorial Foundation on Wednesday celebrated the 115th birth anniversary of Bhagat Singh in the premises of the Lahore High Court (LHC). The community of lawyers raised slogans and cut cakes for Bhagat Singh and his associates Shivram Hari Rajguru and Sukhdev.
Foundation President Imtiaz Rashid Qureshi paid tribute to Singh on the occasion. He urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif to honor the bravery and sacrifice made by Bhagat Singh for the people of the subcontinent, to give the highest civilian award to the freedom fighter.
He urged them to restore social and economic ties between the two countries and to formulate an easy visa policy, so as to encourage peace between the two neighbours. The foundation demanded that King Charles III of Britain should apologize to Pakistan, India and the families of these three revolutionaries and give them a huge compensation.
