On 23 March 1931, Bhagat Singh and two of his associates were hanged at the Lahore Central Jail. This was the culmination of the Lahore Conspiracy Case, one of the most controversial, not to say notorious, trials to take place in India under the Raj. In this book A.G.Noorani argues that Singh and his comrades were the victims of a travesty of justice that amounted to ...more

India’s struggle for freedom had charted along two prominent currents. The nonviolent stream was headed by Gandhi and Nehru, who was ultimately successful in reaching their goal. The violent stream had no consistent leader. It was led by various people at various times, including Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Veer Damodar Savarkar, Chandra Sekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh and a lot of other heroes. Even when the resources of the empire on which the sun never sets was at its lowest ebb in the Second World ...more

Bhagat Singh's trial was counter to any code of law that could be perceived as civilized, it was the antithesis of justice, it was blatant abuse of judicial process to meet political ends. This is what A. G. Noornai quite ably demonstrates in this well researched, three hundred odd page book, complete with appendices containing all relevant documents.

The author excavates the gravest injustice cloaked under the procedure of law, committed by a vindictive government. 'The Trial of Bhagat Singh' i

I started 2012 with a vow to diversify my reading. The focus was not only to increase nonfiction, but also to read new authors. In that regard, 2012 was definitely a year well spent. The books that stand out are Manu Joseph’s “The Illicit Happiness of Other People” Shehan Karunatilaka’s “Chinaman” and Junot Diaz’s “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao”. All of these books absorbed me and more importantly reaffirmed my belief in the power of fiction.

However the book that really got me going was s

Justice AG Noorani is a brilliant man! I had chills run through my body while reading the book, MULTIPLE times! The book really was the foundation of my admiration for the hero Bhagat Singh. Apart from introducing us to such an inspirational man, the book also presents a picture of the working of the colonial government in India, the English administration, the political working and ramifications of the case. It can be a heavy read but after you reach the final pages you are a changed man/woman, ...more

The book is a factual account of how trial of Bhagat Singh took place along with some great details about the events that lead to capturing of him and comrades. However the author took laying out facts a bit too far, the book is full of legal jargon's and technical details, these may be nice for a law students to read, but for a normal person they become a nightmare at times. There is no doubt that author named the book "The Trial of Bhagat Singh" and he delivered on this point in full honesty. ...more
