Freedom Fighters in Karnataka

This is a List of Freedom Fighters in Karnataka who took leadership roles during India’s freedom struggle against the British.

It is important to remember that at the time of the freedom of India (in 1947), there was no Karnataka as we know it today. Instead, it dispersed into 20 different administrative blocks, kingdoms and administrations.

At this moment I want to remember and share with you the great personalities who sacrificed their entire life for the Freedom of India and Unite Karnataka.

Many Karnataka leaders who are directly or indirectly involved in the freedom movement, I try to gather all the information and you presented it to you, this list will not be static, I will update it again and again when it is researched.

I wanted to highlight these freedom fighters because, when we ask someone they will say about, Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose, etc. but when it comes to local region people don’t remember much of them, so to educate the students and researchers this article will be helpful.

We did not obtain freedom only through the effort of one or two people, millions of people contributed to the struggle. So I am proud to be able to name some Karnataka freedom fighters today.
