National Panthers Party celebrates Netaji’s 125th birth anniversary, demands Mahabharat Ratna for him

Netaji’s Birthday

Jammu, January 23, 2021: National Panthers Party a big celebration on the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, one of the super heroes of Indian Freedom Movement who was born on this day in Cuttack, Odissa. His death has not been confirmed till today as he had left Singapore on an airplane in 1945. Several inquiry commissions and committees could not confirm the exact date or the situation in which Netaji disappeared after boarding a flight in Taiwan.

“In the consensus of scholarly opinion, Subhash Chandra Bose’s death occurred from third-degree burns on 18 August 1945 after his overloaded Japanese plane crashed in Japanese-ruled Formosa (now Taiwan). However, many among his supporters, especially in Bengal, refused at the time, and have refused since, to believe either the fact or the circumstances of his death. Conspiracy theories appeared within hours of his death and have thereafter had a long shelf life, keeping alive various martial myths about Bose.”  

Addressing the Panthers Party activists, several senior political and social leaders, Prof.Bhim Singh, Founder & Chief Patron of J&K National Panthers Party from its Headquarters, Jor Bagh, New Delhi and online communication to the Panthers leaders in different states in India including West Bengal, Odissa, Bihar, Tamilnadu, Telangana, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, J&K, Ladakh, Assam, Manipur and several Union Territories, extended greetings to all countrymen as well as the revolutionary parties of the world about one of the greatest revolutionaries born in India who resisted, fought and made super sacrifices to achieve freedom for his motherland, India.

Prof.Bhim Singh conveyed to all political leaders of India and particularly the young ones who are picking up political threads in life from different platforms, political parties to re-read the life of great freedom fighters in the Indian history including Netaji Subash Chander Bose who had the highest qualification and had written his ICS exam with pencil while sitting in exam at a centre organized by India House (Indian Embassy in London) at that time. Netaji surpassed the result of the ICS (Indian Civil Services) exam with distinction. Netaji was offered the highest position as ICS officer in India but Netaji rejected the offer and took up the Indian Flag of freedom and returned to India to fight the freedom movement of India. It was Netaji who defeated Mahatma Gandhi’s candidate, Mr. Pattabhi Sitaramaiah in the election of Indian National Congress as its President in 1939.

It is great that many political parties’ activists except some chosen politicians are keeping away, yet Netaji remains an international hero and the Panthers Party shall continue demanding ‘Mahabharat Ratna’ for Netaji Subhash Chander Bose and ‘Bharat Ratnas’ for super heroes who had participated in freedom movement and sacrificed everything they had in life for India’s freedom.

Bharat Ratna for heroes of freedom movement

Prof. Bhim Singh said that Netaji Subhash Chander Bose deserves to be decorated as Mahabharat Ratna for the magnificent unimaginable role he played during World War-II in his most difficult work. How did he manage to escape from the British jail and reach Bonn, Germany? How he managed to reach Japan by submarine. Travelling under waters for months particularly when the bombs were raining all over. How Netaji managed to reach Japan and form Indian National Army and persuaded Japan to release all Indian prisoners (many were related to Bhim Singh at that time). How he raised Azad Hind Fouz of Indian British soldiers after getting them released from Japanese jails where dozens of them were massacred everyday in Japan jails. It is also unimaginable how Netaji saved the lives of Indian soldiers in Japanese jails and decorated them as freedom fighters in Indian National Army. How great was Netaji as a freedom fighter, as a nationalist, as a soldier and as a commander who organized Indian National Army and fought for India’s freedom from the British-enemies camp and reached upto Malaysia/Singapore with the national flag.

Netaji and many other heroes who sacrificed for the freedom of the country have been forgotten/neglected only because their ideology and heroism did not suit the ruling leadership in India right from 1947 till day.

The Panthers activists made an appeal to the Parliament of India to act boldly and decorate Netaji Subhash Chander Bose as Mahabharat Ratna. The Panthers Party also demanded decoration of all freedom fighters with Bharat Ratnas including Sr. Bhagat Singh and all others.

The committee released a list of those who fought for freedom of the country and sacrificed their lives. The Panthers Party released the list of decorated heroes of India’s freedom who fought from Rani Jhansi to Sr. Bhagat Singh and after them. The Panthers Party released the list of fighters for India’s freedom and demanded decoration of all of them as Bharat Ratnas that,
