ਕੀ ਕਹੀਏ ਤੈਨੂੰ ਅੱਜ ਦੇ ਦਿਨ ਬੱਸ ਮਾਫੀ ਚਾਹੁੰਦੇ ਹਾਂ ਤੇਰੇ ਤੋਂ
ਅਜੇ ਤੱਕ ਨਾ ਸਿਰਜ ਸਕੇ ਤੇਰੇ ਸੁਪਨਿਆਂ ਦਾ ਸਮਾਜ
ਲਿਆ ਨਾ ਸਕੇ ਆਜ਼ਾਦੀ ਜੋ ਤੂੰ ਚਾਹੀ ਸੀ
ਇੱਥੇ ਤਾਂ ਬੱਸ ਹਾਕਮਾਂ ਦਾ ਰੰਗ ਬਦਲਿਆ
ਗੋਰਿਆਂ ਦੀ ਥਾਂ ਆ ਗਏ ਨੇ ਕਾਲੇ ਅੰਗਰੇਜ਼

ਜੋ ਹੱਕ ਮੰਗਣ ਤੇ ਦਿੰਦੇ ਨੇ ਡੰਡੇ ਤੇ ਜੇਲ੍ਹਾਂ
ਫੁੱਟਪਾਥਾਂ ਤੇ ਨੰਗੇ ਅਸਮਾਨ ਹੇਠ ਭੁੱਖੇ ਢਿੱਡੀਂ ਸੌਂਦੇ ਨੇ ਸਾਡੇ ਲੋਕ
ਦੋ ਡੰਗ ਦੀ ਰੋਟੀ ਲਈ ਕਰਨੀ ਪੈਂਦੀ ਹੈ
ਜਿਸਮਾਂ ਦੀ ਸੌਦੇਬਾਜ਼ੀ ਸਾਡੇ ਦੇਸ਼ ਦੀ ਔਰਤ ਨੂੰ

ਗਰੀਬੀ ਕਾਰਨ ਖੁਦਕੁਸ਼ੀਆਂ ਕਰ ਰਹੇ ਨੇ
ਮਜ਼ਦੂਰ ਕਿਸਾਨ ਇੱਥੇ

ਪਰ ਤੂੰ ਉਦਾਸ ਨਾ ਹੋਵੀਂ ਵੀਰੇ,
ਤੇਰੀ ਜੰਗ ਜਾਰੀ ਰੱਖੀ ਹੋਈ ਹੈ ਤੇਰੇ ਵਾਰਸਾਂ ਨੇ

ਚਾਹੇ ਨੰਦੀਗ੍ਰਾਮ ਹੋਵੇ ਚਾਹੇ ਬਰਨਾਲੇ ਦੀ ਧਰਤੀ
ਤੇਰੇ ਵਾਰਸ ਭਿੜ ਰਹੇ ਨੇ ਇਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਕਾਲੇ ਅੰਗ੍ਰੇਜ਼ਾਂ ਨਾਲ

ਤੇਰੇ ਨਾਲ ਸਾਡਾ ਵਾਅਦਾ ਤੇ ਤੈਨੂੰ ਸਾਡੀ ਸ਼ਰਧਾਜ਼ਲੀ ਵੀ
ਕਿ ਤੇਰੀ ਅਧੂਰੀ ਜੰਗ ਜਾਰੀ ਰੱਖਾਂਗੇ
ਲਹੂ ਦੀ ਆਖਰੀ ਬੂੰਦ ਤੱਕ ਸਾਡੇ ਆਖਰੀ ਸਾਹ ਤੱਕ......

...Last Speech In Court in UK...
"I say down with British Imperialism. You say India does not have peace. We have only slavery. Generations of so called civilization has brought for us everything filthy and degrading known to the human race. All you have to do is read your own history. If you have any human decency about you, you should die with shame. The brutality and blood thirsty way in which the so called intellectuals, who call themselves the rulers of civilization in the world are of bastard blood…"
"I DO NOT CARE ABOUT SENTENCE OF DEATH. IT MEANS NOTHING AT ALL. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT DYING OR ANYTHING." (Thumping the rail of the dock, he exclaimed): "WE ARE SUFFERING FROM THE British EMPIRE. (He continued more quietly): "I am not afraid to die. I am proud to die. I want to help my native land, and I hope when I have gone, that in my place will come others of my countrymen to drive the dirty dogs. I am standing before an English jury in an English court. You people go to India and when you come back you are given prizes and put into the House of Commons, but when we come to England we are put to death. In my case I do not care about it, but when you dirty dogs come to India - the intellectuals they call themselves, the rulers - they are of bastard blood caste, and they order machine guns to fire on Indian students without hesitation… Machine guns on the streets of India now down thousands of poor women and children wherever your so-called flag of democracy and Christianity flies.I have nothing against the public. I have great sympathy with the workers of England, but I am against the dirty British Government. You people are suffering the same as I am suffering through those dirty dogs and mad beasts. India is only slavery. Killing, mutilating and destroying. We know what is going on in India, people do not read about it in the press. Hundreds of thousands of people being killed by your dirty dogs…"

Udham Singh (December 26, 1899 – July 31, 1940), born Sher Singh Jammu, was an Indian independence activist, best known for assassinating Michael O'Dwyer in March 1940 in what has been described as an avenging of the Jallianwalla Bagh Massacre.
Singh was also known as Ram Mohammed Singh Azad, symbolizing the unification of the three major religions of India: Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism. Singh is considered one of the best-known of the more extremist revolutionaries of the Indian freedom struggle; he is also sometimes referred to as Shaheed-e-Azam Sardar Udham Singh (the expression "Shaheed-e-Azam," "the great martyr"). Bhagat Singh and Udham Singh along with Chandrasekhar Azad, Rajguru and Sukhdev, were the more famous names out of scores of young firebrand "freedom fighters" in the early part of 20th-century India. These young men believed their motherland would win her freedom only through the forceful removal of the British rulers. For their strong belief in the use of violent means to achieve India's freedom, a nervous England labelled these men as "India's earliest Marxists/Bolsheviks".
In 1940, almost 21 years after the Amritsar Massacre of 1919 in Punjab province of India, Singh shot dead Michael O'Dwyer at Caxton Hall in London. O'Dwyer had been Governor of the Punjab in 1919, when General Reginald Edward Harry Dyer ordered British troops to fire on unarmed Indian protesters, mostly Sikhs.

A joint meeting of the East India Association and the Royal Central Asian Society was scheduled at Caxton Hall, and among the speakers was Michael O'Dwyer. Singh concealed his revolver in a book specially cut for the purpose and managed to enter Caxton Hall. He took up his position against the wall. At the end of the meeting, the gathering stood up, and O'Dwyer moved towards the platform to talk to Lord Zetland. Singh pulled his revolver and fired. O'Dwyer was hit twice and died immediately. Then Singh fired at Lord Zetland, the Secretary of State for India, injuring him but not seriously. Incidentally, Sir Luis Dane was hit by one shot, which broke his radius bone and dropped him to the ground with serious injuries. A bullet also hit Lord Lamington, whose right hand was shattered. Udham Singh did not intend to escape. He was arrested on the spot.
His weapon,a knife, his diary, along with a bullet fired on the day are now kept in the Black Museum of Scotland Yard.

While in Police custody, Singh remarked: "Is Zetland dead? He ought to be. I put two into him right there" indicating with his hand the pit of his stomach in left side. Singh remained quiet for several minutes and then again said: "Only one dead eh'. I thought I could get more. I must have been too slow. There were a lot of women about, you know".

On 1 April 1940, Udham Singh was formally charged with the murder of Michael O'Dwyer. While awaiting trial in Brixton Prison Udham Singh went on a 42 day hungerstrike and had to be forcibly fed daily. On 4 June 1940, he was committed to trial, at the Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey, before Justice Atkinson. When the court asked about his name, he replied "Ram Mohammad Singh Azad", which Singh believed would demonstrate his transcendence of race, caste, creed, and religion. Singh explained his actions to the court at his trial:
I did it because I had a grudge against him. He deserved it.
Atkinson sentenced him to death. On 31 July 1940, Udham Singh was hanged at Pentonville Prison. As with other executed prisoners, he was buried later that afternoon within the prison grounds. In March 1940, Indian National Congress leaders, including Jawahar Lal Nehru and Mahatama Gandhi, condemned the action of Udham as senseless, but in 1962, Nehru did an about-turn and applauded Singh with the following statement in the daily Partap: "I salute Shaheed-i-Azam Udham Singh with reverence who had kissed the noose so that we may be free.
Hindustan Socialist Republican Army condemned Mahatama Gandhi's statement referring to Bhagat Singh as well as also to the capital punishment of Udham Singh, which it considered to be a challenge to the Indian Youths.
