First journalist to be martyred in the Indian independence movement....................89413.

We salute the first martyred journalist in the Indian independence movement:

Moulvi Mohammed Baqir editor of 'Urdu Akhbar Dehli' was the first journalist to be martyred in the Indian independence movement.

He was tied with canon and blown up for his 'seditious' writing against British colonial rule in the first war of independence 1857.

Unfortunately the brave martyr hardly got any recognition in the history books.
