Mahatma Gandhi and Lala Lajpat Rai had a great influence on their lives. At the age of just 15, Azad Gandhiji joined the Non-Cooperation Movement.

Not only this, but Azad also said his father’s name was freedom and his home address was also a jail. Angered by his reply, the judge sentenced him to 15 lashes. Azad kept saying Vande Mataram and Mahatma Gandhi ki Jai on every whip. Since then, his name has become independent.
During the non-cooperation movement, when Gandhiji withdrew the movement due to the Chauri Chaura incident, Azad became disenchanted with Gandhiji.
During this time, he met Ram Prasad Bismil. This meeting with Bismil proved to be a major turning point in Azad’s life. After this, he became a revolutionary by becoming an active member of the Hindustan Republican Association.
Though the management of the social gathering was within the palms of Bismil, however quickly Azad grew to become the selection of all of the companions, together with Bhagat Singh, together with his clear and sensible concepts.

The purpose of looting this treasure was to buy weapons to achieve revolutionary goals. This loot is also known as Kakori Kand. The Kakori incident shook British rule. And the British government fell behind Azad and his comrades, but Azad continued to succeed in dodging the police repeatedly.

For this, these people gathered outside the Lahore Superintendent of Police office on 17 December 1928. Bhagat Singh and Rajguru shot and killed Assistant Superintendent of Police JP Sanders.
