The history of Freedom Struggle started with Swami Dayanand Saraswati with his Nationalist and Reformatory movement. Thereafter, a movement started infusing the spirits enunciated by him into the people of the country.

Following the inspirations given by the Swami, the First war of Independence had begun with Rani Luxmi Bai, Nanaji and others. With the revolt in the so named Mutiny, the fire became big.

Thereafter thousands of martyres sacrificed their lives in the country and also abroad in that struggle.

The struggle culminated in the final strokes of INA Netaji Subhash Chander Bose leading one part and Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Nehru and party leading the other.

Destiny favored the latter and Gandhi and party got the credit.

That was also a political destiny that Mahatma Gandhi who never approved the decision of Partition of the Country had to submit, but this submission though with protest gave him the title of Father of the Nation - Rashtrapita
