Emergency declared in India in 1975

On June 25, 1975, at midnight, the then President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed declared a state of emergency in India following advice from Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The emergency lasted until March 21, 1977. Indira Gandhi made the announcement in a broadcast on All India Radio late that night, shortly after the Supreme Court granted a conditional stay on the Allahabad High Court's decision declaring her election to the Lok Sabha invalid. The Supreme Court had also instructed Gandhi to refrain from participating in parliamentary proceedings. Gandhi reassured the nation in her address, stating, "The President has declared an Emergency. There is no need to panic," but her declaration led to the widespread arrest of opposition leaders.
