Undo a commit on Github

I had pushed a commit onto master. It made sense at that time, but I soon realized it wasn't a wise decision.

Wanted to revert it but had to look out for a while to figure out how to.
Here's the procedure:

git reset --hard HEAD^

This would undo last commit.
Keep executing this command till you get to the desired top commit. Then execute the following to finally commit to Github:

git push origin +master

This pushes the changes forcefully.
