‘Balidan Diwas’ cancelled by South administration insult to Sahid Durga Malla

The Sikkim Gorkha Jagran Sangh today voiced their protest against the south district administration for cancelling the previously accorded permission to hold a function on August 25 at Namchi community hall.

The function was to observe ‘Balidan Diwas’ in memory of martyred national freedom fighter Major Durga Malla. Permission had been given earlier but later it was cancelled by the administration apprehending problems.

“We were initially given written permission to hold the function but we received another letter on August 21 that the permission has been cancelled. The reason cited by the district administration is that there is likelihood of tension if speech related with any specific community is delivered on the occasion,” said Sangh east district president Deo Kumar Pradhan.

 He was speaking to reporters here at Press Club of Sikkim.

“Sikkim Gorkha Jagran Samaj is an apolitical organization and has never been involved in any undesired activities. We strongly condemn this kind of treatment from the administration,” said Pradhan.

The denial of permission by the south district administration is an insult to national freedom fighter Major Malla, asserted the Sangh office-bearer.

 Major Malla had been hanged to death by the British India government on August 25, 1994. In recognition of his contributions for the national freedom movement, the Indian government installed his statue at the Parliament complex in 2004. The statue had been unveiled by the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

August 25 is annually celebrated by various Gorkha associations across the country as Balidan Diwas in memory of the freedom fighter from Indian Gorkha community.

“We had a programme of unveiling a four feet tall wooden statue of Malla on the occasion. The function was supposed to be attended by around 3000 people. This act has deeply hurt us and we have also submitted a letter to the Chief Secretary in this matter,” said the Sikkim Gorkha Jagran Sangh members.

The Sangh has now decided to organize the function at a private hall in Jorethang.

When contacted, south district collector Raj Yadav said: “The organization is not registered and there is a police report that the members of the Sangh have given speeches in particular

'Balidan Diwas' Indian Gorkhas
From the right Saheed Maj. Durga Malla and Saheed Subedar Niranjan Singh Chhetri
On this day in 1944, Durga Malla was hanged to death by the British at Red Fort Delhi.

Hence on August 25th we, the Indian Gorkhas, pay our homage to Saheed Durga Malla and several others who laid down their lives for securing freedom to our country.

Indian Gorkha political and apolitical organisations like Bharatiya Gorkha Parisangh (BGP), Gorkha Public Panchayat (GPP),  AAGSU, All Manipur Gorkha Students’ Union (AMGSU) observes 'Balidan Diwas' throughout India in honour of those brave freedom fighters who sacrificed their life for the sake of the country.

He joined 2/1 Gorkha Rifles at the age of 18 .

Indian National Army (INA) was formed under the leadership of Subhash Chandra Bose, Durga Malla left the British Army and joined the INA,

He was captured by the British at Ukhrul in Manipur on March 27, 1944 and hanged on August 25, 1944 .

His statue was installed within the premises of Parliament which was unveiled by Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh in September 17, 2004 .

We should also pay due homage to the following Indian Gorkha Freedom Fighters on this day.

Niranjan Singh Chhetri who was hanged by the Colonial British on 8th June in the year 1891.

Krishna Bahadur Mukhia  was the personal body guard of Netaji and used to gather intelligence, comb areas that he would visit and fought in the front lines.Later wounded in Burma , captured by the British on January 31, 1944 and taken to a prison in Bangladesh . He was kept in a prison in Burma for 6 months, faced a military tribunal and dismissed from the Gorkha Regiment under the British.

Saheed Indreni Thapa and Saheed Sabitri Thapa were teenagers when they joined the ‘Bal Sena’ or ‘Janbaz Dal’of the Indian National Army led by Netaji Subash Chandra Bose. One of the main functions of the “Janbaz Dal” was akin to modem day suicide squads or human bombs. Indreni Thapa and Sabitri Thapa, the two Gorkha teenagers of ‘Janbaz Dal’ attained martyrdom by blowing up British tanks. They did this by virtually making themselves human bombs by strapping mines on their bodies and crawling under the British tanks camouflaged as bushes, and blowing up the British tanks.
