He captioned in the tweet: “ Chronology of contribution of Sanghis and Manuwadis to the country — Among the 95395 (ninety-five thousand three hundred and ninety-five) immortal martyrs who sacrificed their lives in the war against the Firangis on the inscription of India Gate, Delhi – Muslim – 61395, Sikh – 8050, Backward – 14480, Dalit -10777, Savarna 598, Sanghi-00 (Zero)- find Manuwadi Sanghis?”

Fact Check:

To investigate the claim made by Professor Chandrasekhar, the DFRAC team first collected historical information related to India Gate. According to the Britannica Encyclopedia, India Gate whose official name is Delhi Memorial originally called the All India War Memorial. It is dedicated to the soldiers of British India, who were killed in the wars fought between 1914 and 1919.

It has the names of soldiers martyred in World War I and the Third Anglo-Afghan War written on it. According to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the names of over 13,000 individual Indian soldiers are inscribed in small letters on the memorial.

Conclusion:

Therefore, it is clear from the fact check of DFRAC that Bihar Education Minister Professor Chandrashekhar’s claim of the names of freedom fighters at India Gate is fake. Because there are written the names of the soldiers who died fighting in the World War and the Third Anglo-Afghan War on behalf of the British rule.
