Independence Day is a great day to celebrate and commemorate the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence. India became an independent country in the year 1947. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged the citizens of India to change their social media display of pictures with the National Flag of India (Tiranga) and he also encouraged people to hoist the national flag at their homes on Independence day, which is on 15 August 2022.
Movement is going on with zeal in the country on the call of PM Modi, under the acumen of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. Initially, it started six years ago in Ujjain. At that time, the students of the Youth of India disturbed by the anti-national statements in JU had raised thousands of tirangas in the country. The organization wrote a letter from CM to PM, to appeal for the tiranga campaign. Under the Purview world, Record has been Made.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi updated his social media picture to Tiranga on August 2, 2022. All the citizens of India can be part of this campaign and get an opportunity to put their pictures on the official website of the Har Ghar Tiranga Campaign – harghartiranga.com.
As part of the viral campaign, you may post a selfie with the flag to the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ website, electronically pin a flag, change your social media display photo to the tricolor, and even obtain a personal Tiranga certificate for participation. The campaign also has an official anthem, which incorporates important figures from sports and entertainment. According to the Information and Broadcast Ministry, the anthem is the most popular patriotic music of the year, and it may be heard while hoisting the national flag at home.
PM Modi used video conferencing to address a Tiranga Rally in Surat, recalling that India will celebrate 75 years of independence in a few days and that all of us are preparing for this historic Independence Day as the Tricolour is raised in every corner of the nation. The Prime Minister expressed his delight that the Tiranga Yatras being held across the country are a reflection of the Har Ghar Tiranga Abhiyan’s power and dedication.
The Tiranga is inextricably related to the Indian Constitution. In June 1947, the Constituent Assembly (CA) formed a 12-member ad hoc committee to decide on the national flag. It was called the “Flag Committee,” and its members were Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Sarojini Naidu, C Rajagopalachari, K M Munshi, KM Pannikar, Frank Anthony, Pattabhi Sitaramayya, Hiralal Shastry, Baldev Singh, Satyanarayan Sinha, and SN Gupta. The members of this committee were expected to advocate the adoption of the tricolor as the national flag, with the significant amendment of replacing the charkha with the Ashoka Chakra.
Previously, Indian citizens were only permitted to hoist the National Flag on special occasions. This changed after a decade-long legal battle by industrialist Naveen Jindal culminated in the landmark Supreme Court decision of January 23, 2004, which declared that the right of an Indian citizen to fly the National Flag freely with respect and dignity is a fundamental right under Article 19(1)(a) of the Indian Constitution.
As part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations ahead of Independence Day, a 6,600-foot-long Tricolour yatra was held in Jhajjar.
