On the 44th anniversary of the Emergency, Prime Minister Narendra Modi saluted those who resisted the Emergency that had been imposed by PM Indira Gandhi in 1975 on this day, June 25. Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur responded to his tweet.

Kapur wrote, “Sir, my uncles Dev Anand and Vijay Anand were amongst the first to come out against Emergency. They took out rallies and dared Mrs Gandhi to imprison them. They staked their careers/livelihood on what they believed in. It was a courageous act of defiance.”

Kapur also shared an Instagram post which explained how veteran actor Dev Anand had resisted the Emergency. Dev Anand had actively campaigned against her during the elections and formed a party called National Party of India, which he later disbanded.

Modi tweeted, “India salutes all those greats who fiercely and fearlessly resisted the Emergency. India’s democratic ethos successfully prevailed over an authoritarian mindset.”

Emergency is considered one of the darkest periods in the history of post-independent India, and had been imposed from June 25, 1975 to March 21, 1977. The two years saw a political environment that had led to the suspension of election and the curbing of civil liberties in the nation. Indira Gandhi justified the Emergency under the explanation that the country was under internal as well as external threat.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh tweeted, “The declaration of Emergency on June 25, 1975 and the incidents that followed, mark as one of the darkest chapters in India’s history. On this day, we the people of India should always remember the importance of upholding the integrity of our institutions and the Constitution.”
