PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE EXHIBITION ON THE

"TRIAL OF BHAGAT SINGH"

  In the series of thematic exhibition on important historic pre independence trials in India, the Supreme Court Museum has organized another exhibition on the Trial of Bhagat Singh which was inaugurated by Hon'ble Shri K.G. Balakrishnan, Chief Justice of India on 27th September 2008 as a tribute to our national heroes of India's freedom. A booklet titled The trial of Bhagat Singh and also a brochure were released by Hon'ble the Chief Justice of India on the occasion.  The exhibition will  continue till 31 March,  2009. 

                The Exhibition has four sections, viz; 

1.       the Genesis

2.       the Retaliation and the Police Action

3.       the Trial and the Judgement, and

4.       the Aftermath  

All of us are aware that the attainment of India's freedom was not an overnight journey. It was a long drawn battle for the rights of the people of India, which led to the death of millions of Indians and uncountable sacrifices. Indeed, the urge for revolt is not an ordinary emotion in the life of people; it has its roots in the dissatisfaction with the prevailing system of injustice and the urge for justice. At various stages of freedom struggle this dissatisfaction and discontent took a revolutionary form. One such stage in the revolutionary struggle for freedom was the Trial of Bhagat Singh. The story of the Trial of Bhagat Singh is as much a story of revolution in India as the farcical system of law and justice under the British rule. 

 Bhagat Singh's trial is an important event in the Indian history because it defied the fundamental doctrine of criminal jurisprudence. The trial was held ex-parte in breach of the principles of natural justice according to which No man shall be condemned unless he is given a hearing.

 The Exhibition on the Trial of Bhagat Singh is an attempt to portray the history of the incident and provides a glimpse of the entire episode.  It aims to create awareness about the contemporary socio-political and economic conditions, and more importantly the justice delivery system during British Indian period.

 The Exhibition provides an opportunity for the visitors to have a glimpse of the national heritage of the country under one roof through rare and unique objects viz; bomb shells, a pair of shoes, shirt and watch of Bhagat Singh, Crown of Ajit Singh, horoscope of Bhagat Singh, pen used by the Judge to write judgement in the Saunders murder case, etc. documents connected with Bhagat Singh and Lala Lajpat Rai, files of Assembly Bomb Case and Lahore Conspiracy Case, jail diary of Bhagat Singh, judgment files of Assembly Bomb Case and Saunders murder Case, jail register of Assembly Bomb Case, FIR of Assembly Bomb and Saunders Murder incidents, contemporary reporting of Tribune newspaper from Lahore, personal belongings of Ajit Singh, books read by Bhagat Singh in Dwarkadass Library, Lahore, besides dioramas with light and sound effects and audio-visual materials.
