Ferozepur, District in Punjab: A Land of Martyrs and History

Ferozepur City

Ferozepur is one of the oldest and largest districts in the state of Punjab, India. It is located on the banks of the Sutlej river, which forms the border with Pakistan. The district has a rich and diverse history, culture, and heritage, and is known as the land of martyrs for its role in the freedom struggle of India.

History of Ferozepur District

The district was founded by Firuz Shah Tughlaq, a ruler of the Delhi Sultanate, in the 14th century. He named it after himself and built several forts and mosques in the area. The district witnessed many battles and invasions by various dynasties and empires, such as the Mughals, the Sikhs, the Marathas, and the British.

The district played a significant role in the first Anglo-Sikh war in 1845, when the Khalsa army crossed the Sutlej river and fought against the British forces. The district also saw the heroic sacrifice of 21 Sikh soldiers of the 36th Sikh Regiment, who defended the Saragarhi post against thousands of Afghan tribesmen in 1897. The Saragarhi Memorial Gurudwara in Firozpur city commemorates their bravery and martyrdom.

The district was also the birthplace and final resting place of some of the most prominent freedom fighters of India, such as Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, and Sukhdev. They were hanged by the British in Lahore on March 23, 1931, and their bodies were secretly cremated on the banks of the Sutlej river near Firozepur. The National Martyrs Memorial at Hussainiwala marks their cremation site and pays tribute to their revolutionary spirit.
