Sonia's call to defend freedom

Vrindavan widows holding their rakhis for PM Modi

"We need to bring a positive change in this regard", he said. "Today, 75 years later the issues are different", PM Modi tweeted earlier in the day.

The Quit India Movement also known as the India August Movement in August 1942, during World War II, demanding an end to British Rule from India. He said that it was important for the younger generation to know about the historical movements like Quit India.

Many historians have written about the RSS having had no role in the freedom movement, led largely by the Indian National Congress - a claim rejected by the ideologues of the BJP today. "As we pause and take stock of the situation on the 75th anniversary of the launch of the Quit India movement, we are deeply anguished by the assault on the freedoms that our people have enjoyed since".

Sonia further said millions of people threw themselves into the Quit India movement.

Speaking at the Lok Sabha on the 75th anniversary of the Quit India Movement, Sonia said India cannot be allowed to be taken over communal and dark forces.

Molenbeek, a poor district of the capital with a large Moroccan Muslim population, has been dubbed the "jihadi capital of Europe". Brussels public prosecutor's office spokesman Ine Van Wymersch said, noting that an explosives team was deployed to the scene.

Saluting to the 75-year-old Quit India Movement as an Indian, YS Jagan said that the movement reminded him that everyone is constantly inspiring. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also expected to speak today.

"People followed the clarion call of Mahatma Gandhi of "Do or Die". Let us pledge to free India from poverty, dirt, corruption, terrorism, casteism, communalism and create a "New India" of our dreams by 2022". They supported Mahatma Gandhi during the movement. "There is politics of divide; If we have to preserve freedom, we'll have to defeat forces endangering it".

"Let us work shoulder to shoulder to create the India that our freedom fighters would be proud of".

The Congress President added there were certain organisations that had opposed the Quit India Movement and did not participate in it.
