Anti-terror pledge to mark Netaji birth anniversary
New Delhi: School children and activists
here on Friday remembered Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and took a
pledge to fight terrorism on the eve of his 113th birth
Leading a march at Subhash Chandra Bose Park in the city
was Anti-Terrorist Front chairman M S Bitta who said the birth
anniversary of Netaji "provides us an opportunity to remember
our great freedom fighters".
"Let`s take a pledge to fight terrorism, including
political terrorism on this day. Together we can and together
we will do it. Rukhsana and her brother provide us an example
in fighting terrorism," he told the children.
Rukhsana and her brother, two youngsters hailing from
Rajouri, Jammu and Kashmir, killed a top Pakistani militant
and injured another after a group of ultras barged into their
house in Shahdra Sharief village on September 27.
Netaji`s slogans -- "Give me blood and I will give you
freedom" and `Jai Hind` -- reverberated in the air.
Bose was born on January 23, 1897 in Cuttack, Orissa.
