Chandigarh – “Bhagat Singh killed a young British officer, Amritdhari Sikh constable Channan Singh and hurled a bomb at the National Assembly. So, was Bhagat Singh a terrorist or not ? Isn’t it a shame to kill people and throw bombs in the Parliament”, questioned Simranjit Singh Mann, the newly elected MP from Sangrur in Punjab and a leader of Shiromani Akali Dal. When journalists told him that Bhagat Singh fought the British for freedom, he said, it may be your ideology, but whatever it is, Bhagat Singh was a terrorist.
