Babu Sher Bahadur Singh

Gonda, Uttar Pradesh

April 02, 2024 to April 02, 2026

Babu Sher Bahadur Singh was born in 1910 in Khazuri village, Chapiya block, Gonda district, Uttar Pradesh, and was the son of the Late Shri Jang Bahadur Singh. He received his early education in his village and married Smt. Phool Kumari Singh. Driven by a fervent patriotism, he mobilized villagers to join the freedom struggle.

Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's ideology, Singh actively participated in the Non-Cooperation Movement of 1920, rallying others to serve the nation. However, he was arrested and imprisoned in Gonda district jail. Upon release, he continued his revolutionary activities and was again arrested, this time sentenced to Lucknow jail. Later, when fellow freedom fighter Dwarika Singh faced severe torture in British custody, Singh and other prisoners, fearing rebellion, were transferred to Calcutta Jail for 10 months.

Babu Sher Bahadur Singh passed away on 21 May 1993, at his residence in Khajuri Village, Gonda district.
