MEA Acknowledges Correspondence With Moscow On Netaji

United News of India
New Delhi (UNI) – India’s External Affairs Ministry has acknowledged having corresponded with the Soviet and the Russian governments on the disappearance six decades ago of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose, but declined to disclose the contents.

This was reported last evening by a research group– Mission Netaji– which invoked the year old Right to Information Act to get the Ministry to share the facts in the matter.

”The requisite copies of correspondence cannot be disclosed as it involves the relations with foreign State,” was what the Mission said it was told by the Ministry’s Central Public Information Officer, E Barwa.
The Mission had inquired whether ”serious efforts were ever made from a higher level to uncover the mystery surrounding the fate of one of the greatest Indians ever.”
A legendary figure of India’s independence movement, Bose disappeared after an alleged plane crash over Taipei on August 18, 1945, which the Taiwanese authorities later said had never occurred.
The Mission sought certified copies of the entire correspondence the Ministry had with the Soviet and the Russian governments in the matter.
Declining the request, Barwa wrote to the Mission that the data ”is exempt as per the provisions of Clause 8(1) (a)&(f).”
The clauses cover ”information received in confidence from foreign Government” and ”information, disclosure of which would prejudicially affect” India’s ”security, strategic” interests.
The Mission also wrote to the Ministry, ”we understand that our Embassy in Moscow had taken up the matter with the Foreign Ministry of Russian Federation in 1992, 1995, 1997, 2001 and 2003 with dissatisfying results.”
”The request to Government of USSR and the Russian Federation were made through diplomatic channels at appropriate levels,” the Ministry replied, without elaborating.
”There was no plane crash that day– August 18, 1945– or the day before that or the day after,” former Human Resource Development Minister Murli Manohar Joshi told a conclave in New Delhi last month.

He and former Defence Minister George Fernandes were speaking on new findings that Bose ”did not die in the plane crash, as alleged” and ”the ashes in the Japanese temple are not of Netaji.”
Those conclusions by retired Supreme Court Judge Manoj Kumar Mukherjee countered the findings by two predecessors– Shah Nawaz Khan in 1956 and G D Khosla in 1970– that Bose was killed in a plane crash over Taipei, Taiwan.
Taiwanese authorities say there were no plane crashes in Taipei between 14 August and 20 September 1945.
Justice Mukherjee headed an Inquiry Commission set up by the National Democratic Alliance government in May 1999 following a Calcutta High Court order.

He gave his 672-page report in May 2006 to the United Progressive Alliance government which tabled it in Parliament declaring it has ”not agreed’ with either key finding.
The Mukherjee Commission was the first inquiry set up by a non-Congress government– the past inquiries having been ordered by Prime Ministers Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi.
Critics have over the years charged both Khan and Khosla with having made half-hearted inquiries, intended essentially to endorse the view taken by the establishment in those years.
Speakers pointed to indications that the news of Bose’s death in August 1945 was a smokescreen for his escape to the Soviet Union to pursue the freedom struggle.
They suggested that Russia be requested formally at the highest level to open its archives to Indian scholars.
Controversy has dogged the issue over the past 61 years– with many Indians refusing to believe that Netaji was killed at the time of the alleged aircrash.
Speculation has been fuelled by the Indian authorities’ refusal to let investigators– even a retired Supreme Court Judge in this case– examine the supposedly secret files.

Published accounts say similar reluctance of Russian, British and Japanese governments to let investigators see relevant files ”strongly point to an international conspiracy.”

  1. Japan sold Netaji and Netaji-dummy to British;
    In WW-I, Japan was an ally of British. Before WW-II, Japan-US trade war and political war started, this led to actual war between US and Japan. So British became an enemy to Japan by diplomatic manipulation as US – British alliance was there. After WW-II, Japan revived their old connection with British via spies. Japanese and British spies were enough linked before WW-II. Japanese spies agreed to eliminate Netaji. Motive was to appease the British and purchase security for Japan royal family. Thus, Japan sold Netaji to British and British eliminated him. The false news of air crash was Japan’s fabrication. In any controversial case, liar is to be suspected first.
    Netaji’s plan to start second independence war with the help of USSR was known to Japan. There was enough scope for British and Japanese spies to develop a common minimum program against pro-communist agenda of Netaji. Why should Japanese imperialism agree to patronize emergence of independent India as a permanent communist ally? Is it not more logical to fulfill British condition and purchase favor? Why Japan royal family was not tried as a war criminal? What is the mystery behind this favor?
    There is another point about gumnami baba. Who was he? Gumnami baba was a dummy created as a part of common minimum program of Japanese imperialism and British imperialism. In axis camp, creation of dummy by plastic surgery was a common practice. Hitler and Mussolini were having number of dummies. Japan sold Netaji-dummy to British. British deputed this dummy at faizabad of Uttar Pradesh, with a purpose to create confusion that as if Netaji’s death or life is doubtful. The confusion prevented the nation to be doubtful about role of Japan or British. So gumnami baba of faizabad is a common creation of Japanese spies and British spies. Never had he told the truth. If he had told anything, that must be lie. In a controversial case, liar is to be suspected. So, Japan sold Netaji to British and British executed him in secret. Japan sold Netaji-dummy to British and British deputed him at faizabad of Uttar-Pradesh. Japan surrendered to US-UK side on 15th august 1945. Netaji’s last flight was on 18th august 1945. A surrendered Japan was no longer an ally of azad hind. They worked as per their new mentors, the British.

  2. British ordered assassination of Netaji.
    Now facts are coming out that British ordered assassination of Netaji Subhas Bose after he escaped from house arrest in 1941 and left India to create first Indian National Army to fight the British imperialists. Eunan O”Halpin of Trinity College, Dublin, made the stunning revelation on Sunday evening while delivering the Sisir Kumar Bose lecture at the Netaji Research Bureau. A history professor, O”Halpin said the British Special Operation Executive’s plan to assassinate Bose, popularly known as “Netaji” (the leader), on his way to Germany was foiled as he changed his route and went via Russia. O”Halpin said he had handed over the classified documents backing this to Krishna Bose, a former MP and wife of Netaji’s nephew Sisir Bose who drove him out of Kolkata on the wintry night of Jan 17, 1941 in secrecy. Netaji’s relative Sugato Bose, a professor of history in the Harvard University, said he had already informed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh about the matter. “I met the prime minister on July 26 and informed him of the existence of the documents and told him that unveiling these documents would not affect bilateral ties with UK in any way. Netaji himself was not against the people of Britain but the imperial government,” said Bose. But who really killed the real Indian hero of independence? Netaji had unified Indians and Muslims in the Indian National Army that drove British Army to its knees and came up to Imphal, Manipur and raised India flags on India soil. The Taiwan plane crash where the world knows Netaji died was the biggest cover up. According to international think tanks, British were behind killing Netaji. British were eager to get rid of Netaji because with Netaji’s presence they could not have split India into India and Pakistan. British ruled India with the policy of divide and rule. Netaji did not like that unlike other Indian leaders like Nehru or Mahatma Gandhi. Some say, Netaji was handed over to Russians by the Japanese and Stalin ordered his execution. But now British archives are making it clear that British may have executed him in secret. This was an act of Anglo-Japan secrete pact. Because Japan is also involved, so they spread the lie on air crash. If that was the case, then it was in violation of international prisoner of war rules and norms. Japan surrendered to Brit & US on 15th august, 1945 and Netaji’s last air trip was on 18th august 1945. So a surrendered Japan was no longer azad hind ally, as because Netaji was not in a mood to surrender. British gained a lot from Netaji’s disappearance forever. They could split India into India and Pakistan. They could make millions of Indians wage war against each other based on religion and make many more millions homeless. It was an ideal lesson taught to Indians by the British before British had diluted their empire in Asia. Netaji would have never tolerated this. And their lies the motivation for killing Netaji. O”Halpin said the British thought Netaji would travel to Germany from Afghanistan via Iran, Iraq and Turkey and informed representatives in Istanbul and Cairo to carry out the operation. “I think the British government should make public all the relevant documents about Netaji, since this issue is not going to affect ties between India and United Kingdom in any way now,” he said. But still British are not competent enough to tell the truth. So it is reasonable to believe that Japan sold Netaji to British and British executed him in secret.
