India's Freedom Struggle
British and some Indians never gave a real credit to true freedom fighters, who suffered exiles, torture at Andaman Island or outright murders. Similar experiences were cited in other countries seeking independence like Ireland, Kenya, and other colonies.
In this article, I'm going to examine certain portions of Savarkar's book, 'Six Glorious Epochs of Indian History', which allegedly have contents endorsing rape of Muslim women as a political tool. How true are these claims? Did Savarkar really say something erroneous? It can be understood only after examining the text.
if Godse was a terrorist, so were Khudiram Basu, Binoy Basu, Surya Sen, Bhagat Singh and Chandra Shekhar Azad et al. While the later violently fought against British colonialism, the former killed the perpetrator of self-loathing, apologist, timid and passive Hindu Indian psyche.
Had all Indians taken arms against British and supported Azad Hind Fauz of Netaji from within India in 1942 instead of allowing the Congress to launch non-violent ‘Quite India Movement’ of Gandhi, the history of sub-continent would have been different.
क्या हमने कभी सोंचा है कि कैसा होता अगर भारत को सुभाष चंद्र बॉस जी की आजाद हिन्द फौज ने आज़ादी दिलाई होती, या फिर 1857 की क्रान्ति का अंत देश की आजादी के साथ होता। मेरे विचार से तो तब शायद हमे देश की आज़ादी पर खुशी के साथ-साथ गर्व भी महसूस होता।
The reality of the Veer Savarkar’s mercy petition to the British government; was it really voluntary or out of compulsion?
Nehru never faced the same cruelty which Savarkar faced. Being born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he had family connections with the British authorities, and was friends with them; this spared him from most forms of cruelty.
Our democracy is partially blind and has no way to distinguish between nationalism and rent seeking behaviour and this is where the society must step in to fill the gaps. We need to list out those who use our nation’s democracy and Constitution to further their personal agendas and remove them from electoral process to begin with.
