After reading this, you will certainly remove a person from the list of “freedom fighters”. The real warriors who fought for India’s struggle were never given their credits and this can is found out when we analyse the rare documents which are hidden from the mainstream.
When we speak of revolutionary freedom fighters, Chandrashekar Azad’s name can never be forgotten. He was born in Madhya Pradesh on June 23, 1906. He came to limelight after he joined the Non-Cooperation Movement but was soon arrested by the British. When he was produced before a magistrate, he gave his name as “Azad” (The Free), his father’s name as “Swatantrata” (Independence). Later he took a vow that he would never be arrested in his life and would embrace death as a free soul. He followed every word of his pledge as he shot himself during his battle with the British on February 27, 1931.
Dushman ki goliyon ka hum saamna karenge, Azad rahein hain, azad hi rahenge! (We will face the bullets of our enemies, We are free, will remain free)
He wasn’t scared to face the enemy’s bullets but he didn’t know that one of his countrymen backstabbed him. How many of you knew that Azad was returning after he had a verbal spat with Jawaharlal Nehru? He was returning from Anand Bhawan and was heading towards Alfred Park to meet his other revolutionary friend Sukhdev Raj. Now the suspicion points towards Nehru because it was not a secret that Nehru had friendly relationship with several British.
There are high chances that people may call this a cooked up story which was planted to tarnish the extreme patriotism of Nehru. But let was once focus on what Chandrashekar Azad’s nephew had said. His nephew, Sujith Azad had said that it was Jawaharlal Nehru who informed the British about Azad’s whereabouts. He also said that Azad had handed over HSRA funds to Nehru and requested him to release Bhagat Singh. As per Sujith, Nehru accepted the money but we all know what had happened with Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru.
It is not a hidden fact that the top Indian National Congress leaders regularly exchanged confidential information with the British on Subhash Chandra Bose. Recently it was even exposed that Nehru had even spied on Subhash Chandra Bose’s kin. It is even said that Nehru awarded the man who looted INA treasures. By looking at this, we cannot deny of Nehru’s involvement in informing Azad’s whereabouts to British.
Nehru has confirmed in his autobiography that Chandrasekhar Azad had come to meet him in his residence in Allahabad in early 1931. In his autobiography, he mentions that in February 1931, he met a stranger and later came to know that it was Chandra Shekar Azad. But this is a pure lie because almost every Indian knew who Azad was.
Nehru further mentions that “Azad had lost interest in terrorism and wanted to make a peace deal”. Now this sentence is even a false claim by Nehru because Azad was a revolutionary freedom fighter and he hated to core the peace policy followed by Nehru and gang. So it is clear that Nehru tried to distort the facts in his autobiography.
Finally, Nehru says that “He tried to defend himself from behind a tree; there was quite a shooting match, and he injured one or two policemen before he was shot down”.
Yes, Nehru mentions that Chandrashekar Azad was shot down. But even a child knows that Azad used the last bullet he had on himself and embraced death instead of getting captured by the British.
So did Nehru really help the British to get Azad killed?
