1/n #SadarPranam to Ishvara within you @quizzicalguy !

It was fun reading this hilarious thread by you centered on displaced views about #Netaji & how so called Indian Right looks at him.

This thread has point wise rebuttal. Do respond should you have enough substance.

2/n Firstly, you must know that even once Savarkar wrote lullabies in name of Hindu-Muslim unity, only to latter turn into whom you might call “Hindu Communalist.”

Who knows had #Netaji seen the phase of #DirectActionDay, how would he have behaved?…

3/n Dear @quizzicalguy , I don’t know if you know it or not but once SR Goel whom too you might dismiss as Hindu Communalist stood being a Gandhian & Communist only to change opinion after he had to save his life during #DirectActionDay

4/n Read about Lalmohan Sen, a revolutionary, a communist who was killed by the Muslim rioters while resisting their attempts against Hindus. It was all just the matter of time.

5/n Given the understandings around #Netaji given by @anujdhar @chandrachurg , I’m sure he would have been labelled Hindu Communalist too had he seen formal politics post 1945.

6/n And as you, @quizzicalguy mention about his deification for his militarism and nexus with fascist power, it is indeed a matter of lol.

Firstly, no one deifies him, but respects him for the fact that he was a major reason for breaking shackles of Christian Imperialist.

7/n I’m surprised @quizzicalguy, that you write on history & aren’t aware that the black deeds (like holocaust) of National Socialist German Workers’ Party (which Communists began to address as NAZI) were known to world only after WWII.

I’m sure you know the sources.

8/n The world was not even aware about the menace Communist Totalitarians had up for the world.

Even the letters written by Gandhi to Hitler don’t reflect of what we know “Hitler” for today. Not to miss he was addressed as “Dear Friend.”

9/n Gandhi places Hitler in same plate as British.

Then in this case we mustn’t forget @quizzicalguy , that once Gandhi wanted Indians to cooperate with British during the WW-I. He had an intention, as we are told.

Then why doubt #Netaji drawing support from the Axis powers?

10/n If we never say that Gandhi ji was drawing nexus with our own Imperialist?

If you chose to justify each act of Gandhi then why of #Netaji which seemed way more pragmatic.

11/n Winston Churchill was Hitler for us who engineered the genocide of way more than what Hitler did?

Still we are more worried about #Netaji trying to create his own front against “His Majesty” & the man who was our own Hitler?

12/n Aren’t you the same people @quizzicalguy who have issues with #Hindutva leaders calling against extra perks to minorities?

Aren’t you the same people who see #Hindutva as a threat when the related leaders wish to see government investing in Hindu Cause?

13/n Then what do you have for #BoseBrothers ?

It happens @quizzicalguy , when you haven’t read enough.

As starter, you must know that #Netaji was highly influenced by Aurobindo, hence Bankim Chandra.

He saw motherland as Durga, & worshiped her. Isn’t is similar to #Hindutva ?

14/n You will be surprised to know @quizzicalguy that #SubhashChandraBose & his brother went steps ahead against subjugation of Hindu rights which many current leaders of whom you call Hindu Right, would ever step in.

15/n 1) #Netaji’s biographer, Leonard Gordon writes, “Subhas issued no public statements on religion, but his Hinduism was an essential part of his Indianness.”

Oh @quizzicalguy , again the damn -ness, ie -tva. Does it looks identical to words of #Savarkar?

15/n 1) #Netaji’s biographer, Leonard Gordon writes, “Subhas issued no public statements on religion, but his Hinduism was an essential part of his Indianness.”

16/n Read this one @quizzicalguy . This is from the letter #Netaji wrote to his sister-in-law from Mandlay Jail, December 26, 1925.

He talks about seeing Mother, Motherland in Durga.

What is Bose said this today?
Source: In Burmese Prisons: Correspondence May 1923-July 1926, V3

17/n When it was Vijadashmi of 1926, #Netaji wrote to his brother expressing euphoria, “Today is Bijoya Dasami and throughout Bengal relations, friends and even enemies – children of the same Mother – will be soon embracing one another in fraternal love.”

Note the key words.

18/n When he mentions such, he lives with the belief that Muslims too would be seeing Durga as the mother & be delighted to worship her.

Surely he was not so well versed with the doctrines of Islam. My first 5 tweets should be read along with this again.

19/n Source for 17/n :Brothers Against the Raj: A Biography of Indian Nationalists by Leonard A. Gordon

Let us go ahead.

From the same source we find that in letter written to Dilip Roy, Netaji was indeed influenced by Dharma that MN Roy, Nehru found irrelevant.

20/n Well, @quizzicalguy , you might not know but #Netaji appealed for getting allowance for Saraswati Puja & Holi as was being given to Christians for their festivals in Jail.

Does it seem like #Hindutva or Hindu Right to you? Read this letter

21/n #Savarkar was also asking for no concessions to Minorities. Is it not @quizzicalguy ?

Today too when we ask for freeing Hindu Mandirs, we stand against the discrimination done against Hindus as #Netaji was doing.

Let us give you more shocks. Read on

22/n When no reply to letter of Feb 2, 1926 came he wrote further stiff letter to the Chief Secretary.

Netaji doesn’t hesitates to state that western religion, ie Christianity has “hate” for others while “Hindu Dharma” doesn’t have it. pg 222

How does it feel @quizzicalguy ?

23/n You might be surprised to hear this, but #Netaji had campaigned against the ill treatment given to Sactindhra Sen who had raised the issue of permission to play music in proximity of mosques even during Hindu festivals.

Does it appear like #Hindutva, @quizzicalguy ?

24/n Dear @quizzicalguy , you need to note that #Netaji wrote this letter on September 20, 1940 asking for allowance to let perform Durga Puja in jail exactly with the tradition.

& questions y this can’t be done if Christians & Muslims are given such allowances?
Is it #Hindutva?

26/n What this also clears right away to us that #Netaji had no affinity with Fascism at all. He calls it out here and very rightly mentions British are way to high with Nazism in action.

Got it @quizzicalguy ?…

25/n @quizzicalguy , today too we resist Muslim appeasement. #Netaji did so in 1940. He had called out the Muslim appeasement of the Provincial Government of Bengal.

He does not hesitates to say that government is only moved by Muhammaden/ Muslim cause.

Read the letter!

26/n What this also clears right away to us that #Netaji had no affinity with Fascism at all. He calls it out here and very rightly mentions British are way to high with Nazism in action.

The legacy of loyalty by the great Mughals 


1 The Mughal emperor Humayun blinded his own brother Kamran & murdered his brothers Askari and Hindal.

2 Akbar the “great” killed his own foster brother Adham Khan by throwing him down from the palace walls at Agra, in 1562. Akbar’s murder of Adham Khan was illustrated in the Akbarnama by the Mughal court artists Miskin and Shankar.


3 Jahangir cruelly blinded his own son Khusrau as his father Akbar wanted his grandson as heir, because Jahangir was an alcoholic & drug addict. Khusrau was captured, put on an elephant & paraded down Chandni Chowk, while his kinsmen were held at knife-point on raised platforms.


4 As the elephant approached each platform, each supporter was impaled on a stake (through his bowels), while Khusrau was forced to watch & listen to the screams. This was repeated numerous times, then Khusrau was blinded by his father Jahangir in…

My people uprooted


Courtesy: Shri Tathagata Roy

8 April 1950 a fateful pact signed betn Jawaharlal Nehru & Liaquat Ali Khan,PM of Pakistan. After 2 months of Govt-engineered pogrom,slaughter, rape of Hindus in East Pakistan. Estimated 50,000 Hindus killed. An instance of incredible political stupidity on Nehru’s part.

Upon Liaquat’s glib assurance that Hindu refugees would be taken back and restored,the gullible Nehru decided that no rehabilitation of Hindus was necessary in India. Result: no refugee went back and were forced to live under inhuman conditions in Indian camps.

The Pakis were so insincere about the pact that their Govt issued secret instructions not to restore any Hindu to his property. Even after the pact all Hindu passengers in down Assam Mail were pulled down and killed just outside Santahar station.

The two Bengali ministers…
