28th May - Veer Savarkar Jayanti

"Hinduize Politics and Militarize Hindus "

CHOOSE DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR!
IF YOU ARE A HINDU, THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT IN THIS WORLD THAN YOUR MOTHER LAND - BHARAT ! FIGHT IF YOU MUST !! DIE IF YOU MUST !! NO HINDU CAN ASK FOR A BETTER DEATH THAN DEFENDING THEIR MAATRU BHOOMI .

-- Veer Savarkar



Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, commonly known as Swatantryaveer Savarkar was a fearless freedom fighter, social reformer, writer, dramatist, poet, historian, political leader and philosopher. He remains largely unknown to the masses because of the vicious propaganda against him and misunderstanding around him that has been created over several decades. This website attempts to bring the life, thought, actions and relevance of Savarkar before a global audience.

Veer Savarkar - A legend

  • The first political leader to daringly set Absolute Political Independence as India's goal (1900).
  • The first Indian political leader to daringly perform a bonfire of foreign (English) clothes (1905).
