Celebrating Hyderabad Liberation Day
The central government is organizing an event in Hyderabad to commemorate Hyderabad Liberation Day, with Amit Shah as the chief guest. The event aims to remember the sacrifices made by the people of Telangana, Hyderabad-Karnataka, and the Marathwada region. It also honors their unwavering patriotism and their struggle for freedom.
Shah extended his heartfelt best wishes to the people of these regions, emphasizing the significance of the day. He acknowledged the people’s determination to free themselves from the oppressive rule of the Nizam and paid homage to the martyrs of the Hyderabad Mukti Sangram.
Struggle Against the Razakars
During the Hyderabad Liberation movement, the people of the region fought valiantly against the atrocities committed by the private militia known as the ‘Razakars.’ These militias defended the oppressive Nizam rule and called for Hyderabad state to either join Pakistan or become a Muslim dominion.
However, the people of the region resisted these demands and fought for their integration into the Union of India. Eventually, their efforts were successful, and Hyderabad state was annexed into the Union following military action initiated by Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
