H. N Pandit's book on Subhas Chandra Bose reveals how Britain aided by the Indianpolitical leaders tried its best to erase Subhas Chandra Bose, belittle his contribution and legacy, and worst of all, tried to defame and vilify him in various ways - character assassination, Nazi sympathizer, Japanese stooge and fifth column, supporter of Japanese war crimes and so on. Only an honest and candid unofficial admission of Attlee to Justice P.B Chakrabarty is a testimony to how much the British hid to protect all their wrongdoings, nay, crimes and genocides. They bought their collaborators in India and carefully selected them to occupy the helms so that their disinfromation and misinfromation campaign could continue. But truth has an uncanny way of coming out. And more will tumble out. Writes H. N Pandit in his book Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, from Kabul to Imphal -
Even Hugh Toye who had some appreciation for Netaji and his mens' heroism atned for his sin by claiming that formation of INA was a mistake as Britain was ready to give India her freedom - What a lie! Britain was neither willing, nor ready to give India her freeom even in 1945, i.e. until INA trials shook the concience of the Nation and there was every possibility of mutinies in Indian army and navy. Britain was weakened by the second world war, but thatw as all the more reason for it to continue to loot Indian resources, to fill its coffer. No, there was no pressure from America to give India her freedom. If there would have been pressure other European powers including Britain could not have continued their colkonies elsewhere in Asia and Africa. It was all a white lie to whitewash their conscience, to hoodwink their people and was willingly supported by their pliant Western academicians and historians. Writes Pandit further -
Pandit also refers to Indian leadership and their ambivalent attutude tiowards Netaji - starting with Gandhi's rather infamous remark - "Afterall Subhas Babu is not an enemy of this country." Nehru told Subhas in a letter that he had a poor opinion about Subhas's intelligence and about Nehru's official biographer which throws a light of Nehru's opinions on Subhas further - despite some Nehruphile's claim that he was a "friend" of Subhas -
Needless to say that Pandit's attempt to write about the events was an earlier one and he mightnot have all the information. But he was sincere and had great regards - he was truthful - more than enough to establish his credibility.
Did Britain and the "JLN Combine" succeed? Only time will tell.
