New DelhiAjit Doval, National Security Advisor (NSA), stated on Saturday that if Subhas Chandra Bose had been alive, India would not have been partitioned.
During the first Subhas Chandra Bose memorial lecture organized by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham) in the nation’s capital, the NSA stated that Netaji displayed a great deal of audacity throughout his life, including the audacity to challenge Mahatma Gandhi.
“I am not saying whether he was good or bad, but there are very few parallels in Indian and world history of people who had the audacity to sail against the current,” Doval said, adding that Netaji was a solitary individual who had the support of only Japan.
Gandhi was at his peak when Bose quit and left the Congress.
The thought that entered his mind was, “I will fight the British and not plead for liberty. It is my prerogative, and I will pursue it,” the NSA explained. “Had Subhas Bose existed, India would not have been partitioned. Doval stated that Jinnah had stated, “I can accept only one leader, and that is Subhas Bose.”
He also stated that Subhas Chandra Bose desired for Indians to feel as liberated as animals and never compromised on the country’s independence. Doval added that Bose desired not only to liberate India from political subjugation, but also to alter the political, social, and cultural mindset of the people.
“Netaji (Subhas Chandra Bose) stated that I will accept nothing less than complete independence and liberty. The national security adviser stated that it is necessary to alter the political, social, and cultural mindset of the people in order for them to feel as liberated as birds in the heavens.
The NSA stated that Bose was a profoundly religious and secular individual. He added that Bose’s efforts were motivated by his fervent patriotism and his unwavering desire for India to be successful.
“Bose’s efforts were monumental, fueled by his romantic notions of patriotism and his unyielding optimism for India’s greatness. Even though history was harsh to him, his influence and nationalism endured after his death. “His extraordinary journey left an indelible impression on the hearts and minds of countless Indians,” he said.
