Remove last commit from Git repository

For example, git log command gives me the following commit history.

A -> B -> C -> D [HEAD, ORIGIN]

I need to remove my last commit D for local & remote repo like below one.

A ->B -> C [HEAD,ORIGIN]

Answer

Step 1: Remove commit from local repo

git reset HEAD^

Step 2: Forcefully push the new HEAD commit

git push origin +HEAD

If we want to still have it in our local repo and only remove it from the remote, then we can use below command.

git push origin +HEAD^:<name-of-our-branch>
