Undertones in the article about Bhagat Singh[edit]

I find the undertones in the article offensive. I am not sure if it is just a typo or deliberate maligning. Please see the text:

1929 Assembly incident For some time, Singh had been exploiting the power of drama as a means to inspire the revolt against the British, purchasing a magic lantern to show slides that enlivened his talks about revolutionaries such as Ram Prasad Bismil who had died as a result of the Kakori conspiracy.

"exploiting", really?! Maybe you meant "exploring"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Raghav.chandran (talkcontribs) 19:53, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

You'll need to see the source to figure this out. Exploiting and exploring have different meanings, neither of which is negative, and we need to be faithful to the source. --regentspark (comment) 20:12, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

Popularity[edit]

Wall painting of Singh, Rewalsar, Himachal Pradesh.

Subhas Chandra Bose said that: "Bhagat Singh had become the symbol of the new awakening among the youths." Nehru acknowledged that Bhagat Singh's popularity was leading to a new national awakening, saying: "He was a clean fighter who faced his enemy in the open field ... he was like a spark that became a flame in a short time and spread from one end of the country to the other dispelling the prevailing darkness everywhere".[1] Four years after Singh's hanging, the Director of the Intelligence Bureau, Sir Horace Williamson, wrote: "His photograph was on sale in every city and township and for a time rivaled in popularity even that of Mr. Gandhi himself".[1] Surwasevb (talk) 14:36, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
