When Sardar Udham Singh Was Released From Prison And Escaped To Germany Through Kashmir

The hype that the upcoming movie ‘Sardar Udham’ has created is very amazing. Vicky Kaushal is being praised for his super act as Shaheed Udham Singh in the movie. Equally Amol Parashar is also being admired after his revelation of the look of Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s role in the film. 

Sardar Udham was a revolutionary who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer in London to take revenge for the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar, Punjab. He was deeply influenced by Bhagat Singh & his group. Vicky Kaushal who is playing Udham Singh’s character shared a post regarding Sardar Udham’s  imprisonment and escaping from India to Europe to plan the murder of Michael O’Dwyer, who was the main reason behind the Jallianwala Bagh firing. 


In 1924, Udham Singh was involved with the Ghadar Party which ran an international movement to overthrow British rule in India. In 1927, he came back to India after the orders of Bhagat Singh. After returning, he got arrested for the possession of unlicensed weapons and possessions and copies of prohibited Ghadar Party paper called “Ghadr-i-Gunj” (Voice Of Revolt). Sardar Udham was summoned and sentenced to five years of imprisonment.
