Martyrs Day is being observed across the country today by paying tributes and respects to those who sacrificed their lives for the sake of the country and people, quoting RSS.
Magh 16 in the Nepali lunar calendar every year is marked as the National Martyrs Day, commemorating those who were executed by the autocratic Rana rulers for voicing for people’s rights and those who lost their lives in various movements launched for democracy and people’s sovereignty.
Freedom fighters Shukra Raj Shastri, Dharma Bhakta Mathema, Dashrath Chand and Gangalal Shrestha who were sentenced to death for their battle for people’s rights are remembered and respected as the four leading martyrs in country’s political history.
