    Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose wanted ruthless dictatorship in India for 20 years - The Times of India


    Recent allegations about a newly independent India under Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru snooping on the kin of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is what conspiracy theorists and spin doctors needed to push their agenda — that Netaji was a greater patriot than Pandit Nehru. The "see-I-told-you" band of people, some of them public intellectuals, have kept the media and political circles abuzz with all sorts of activity ever since.

    Every day, someone or the other claims to know what really happened to Bose and blames Pandit Nehru and the Congress for it. Any narrative or opinion that runs contrary to this new perception is immediately denounced as a work of traitors. However, Bose's admirers conveniently ignore his Faustian treaty with Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan.

    Netaji Bose, by his own admission in his book, "Indian Struggle" (published in 1935 in London), believed India needed a political system that was a mix of fascism and communism — something that he called samyavad. Netaji made a special trip to Rome in 1935 to present a copy of his book to Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, whom he greatly admired and whose ideals he would follow for the rest of his life. Bose's reactionary views naturally brought him into conflict with the pacifist leaders of Congress, most notably Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Nehru. But the friction didn't happen in 1935, it happened much earlier.

    READ ALSO: What if Netaji had returned to India ...

    Bose had organized the annual session of the Indian National Congress in 1928 in Calcutta. There, he organized a guard of honour in full military style—over 2,000 volunteers were drilled in military fashion and organized into battalions; half of them wore military uniforms with "officers" wearing metal epaulettes. For himself, Bose got a senior British military officer's dress tailored by Calcutta-based British firm, Harman's, complemented by an aiguillette and a field marshal's baton; he also assumed the title of general officer commanding, much to the chagrin of Gandhi, who described the whole thing as 'Bertram Mills circus'. But Bose's love for militarism continued just like his love for a good show.

    The worst piece of trash I have ever read from TOIlet paper of India.

    Bose allied with the Nazis because he wanted freedom from the British. Everyone knows that he did not like the Germans. Bose created the Forward Bloc which follows a communist ideology. He himself had said that India can only gain real freedom if it gave equal importance to people of all classes.(the samyavad) He was one of the first Congress minsters who wanted to abolish zamindari system and advocated the redistribution of land among the poor and landless peasants. Now this Congress paid article tries to demonize Netaji just because he opposed our great Panditji.

    Netaji`s struggle is one every Indian should know. He gave up his life so that we can call ourselves free. He did not sit in a prison and make a false attempt to fast himself unto death. Neither did he run after the wives of British viceroys. If Indians want to forget such a hero then it is their choice. I think the statement that "the evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with the bones" is apt here. Netaji IMO never did anything evil. He gave up his Congress president-ship and sacrificed his life.

    Anyway Gen. V.K. Singh has been vindicated and his opinion about Indian media has been proven right. The Indian MSM is nothing but a bunch of presstitutes.
    @pmaitra sir should read the article and understand how unbiased our media is.

    Sir,
    I have been seeing a disturbing trend in our media recently. NDTV,Timesow,TOI have been posting half truths and whole lies in their articles ever since BJP came to power. The Aum controversy is one such example. I do not understand why these media houses and their Congress patrons think we are so gullible and naive to believe in their hogwash.

    Guys, here's the thing, the files being declassified basically show that the congis are responsible for Netaji's death, possibly after torture, perhaps to prevent him from returning, and posing a threat to congi power in Ind.

    So this seems like an attempt to "lighten the blow". Lets paint Netaji in bad light, and say he was a fascist/ruthless dictator, and show that India is way better without him, indirectly telling you that nice congress protected your freedoms.

    Seems like a hitjob.

    Netaji sacrificed his life while Nehru was busy ravishing lady Mountbatten.

    Exactly that is the point. The Congress has always wanted the Indian people to worship a chosen pantheon of their national heroes. This pantheon has Gandhi and Nehru at the top. The other freedom fighters do not get their due importance there.
