Discovery Of Bhagat Singhs Pistol And His Ahimsa Book Review


Bhagat Singh was one of the most influential revolutionaries of the Indian independence movement. We know how his .32 US Colt pistol shook the British Rule when he killed British Police officer JP Saunders outside Lahore Police station on December 17, 1928.

But, no one ever tried to go the extra mile. No one tried to trace his gun which was raised for the freedom of our nation 89 years ago. They said the gun was untraceable, they said it is impossible, but a journalist with self-belief and good intentions embarked on a journey to find it.

He just had a number - 168896 which was enough for a journalist with passion and love for his country. The number was a key to the treasure but the path was unknown.

The book - Discovery Of Bhagat Singh's Pistol And His Ahimsa covers the path and entire journey of the gun from the very beginning. It also covers Bhagat Singh's thoughts and ideas. How he inspired the youth to fight against Britishers to take back what is ours.

It also has all the documents which prove that .32 US Colt Pistol no. 168896 is the gun which was used by Bhagat Singh to kill JP Saunders. Photographs and News-Clippings at the end of the book prove the authenticity of the story.

It is unbelievable, but it's TRUE.

Overall, Discovery Of Bhagat Singh's Pistol And His Ahimsa will inspire, motivate and move you towards a better future. So, go ahead and buy this book from Amazon now!



This book traces a fascinating journey of a journalist who set out to discover Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s pistol, lost not only in the realms of time but government records also. It is a gripping tale of over eight decades-long journey of the weapon, a.32 US Colt pistol, used by Shaheed Bhagat Singh to gun down British Police officer, JP Saunders outside Lahore Police station on December 17, 1928. After Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were sentenced to death, the pistol and other case properties were handed over to the Lahore Police to be kept at the Fire Arms Bureau at Police Training School (now Academy), Phillaur in Jalandhar district. That was the last written record about the pistol. The weapon was, however, not seen in Phillaur or elsewhere. In an exemplary journalistic investigation, Jupinderjit Singh brought the pistol of the much revered hero of India out of oblivion. At the same time the writer has delved deeper into Bhagat Singh’s idea of non-violence.
