Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was the President of the Congress twice. Before independence Bose and RSS founder Dr. An organization advocating for Hindutva Vidharchara claims that there was a meeting between Hedgewar. The organization has been paying tribute to Netaji for years. Bose was born on January 23, 1897 in Cuttack. He spent most of his life in Kolkata. Ajay Kumar, East Zone Sangchal, said that it is completely wrong to say that Netaji criticized the Sangh. There is no proof of this anywhere.
How did the two part ways with the Congress?
Subhash Chandra Bose and Dr. Historians say that Hedgewar also has its roots in the Congress. Both of them started their freedom struggle from here. He was known as Subhash Netaji and Hedgewar Doctorji. Within a short span of time, the stature of these two leaders grew. Subhash became the most popular leader in the Congress. After Gandhi, there was no one like him in the party. Dr. Hedgewar became the secretary of the Vidarbha Congress Committee at the age of 30-35. Disgruntled with the appeasement policy of the Congress, both of them left the Congress. Both had a deep connection with the land of Bengal. Netaji is from here since his birth. Hedgewar, meanwhile, had graduated as a doctor from the National Medical College, Calcutta. Graduated in June 2014 and left here. Hedgewar chose Calcutta for his studies because it was the center of the revolution against British rule. Hedgewar soon joined the freedom struggle. He was known as ‘Cocaine’ among the revolutionaries. Hedgewar founded the RSS in 1925 in Nagpur with 12 children.
Netaji met Hedgewar in 1940
Netaji took command of the Indian National Army (INA) during World War II. Ras Bihari Bose is called the father of this organization. While passing through Maharashtra by train, Netaji saw volunteers parading in uniform. On investigation, the organization was run by none other than his colleague in Congress, Dr. He is said to have understood that Hedgewar. He found that the uniform of the volunteers was similar to that of the soldiers of the Indian National Army. After this the desire to see Dr. Hedgewar increased. The two leaders met in Nagpur in 1940. A section of historians say that Netaji wanted to meet him on a matter of national importance. On the other hand, another section says that Netaji wanted to unite the INA and the RSS into a single force in the freedom struggle. Dr. It was another matter that Hedgewar was seriously ill. He also could not speak. Seeing this, Netaji did not disturb him. Unfortunately, Hedgewar passed away in a week when the two could have discussed an issue of national importance. There is also a photograph of this meeting between the two leaders in the Delhi RSS office.
There are many similarities between RSS and INA
At the organizational level, the RSS and the INA had a lot in common. The ways and principles of both were very similar. However, the RSS also had a social structure based on geography and population. Both organizations included physical training. However, their status was different. Aditya Mukherjee, a prominent historian and professor who has written several books on the Indian freedom struggle, says that Bose’s ideology of secular and democratic principles and his staunch opposition to British rule were against the RSS and the Hindu Mahasabha. He made this clear during his lifetime.
MS Golwalkar also received a letter from Gunnami Baba, who many believe to be Subhash, who was in hiding in UP after independence. Gunnami Baba passed away on 16 September 1985. However, whether he was actually Netaji Subhash or not remains a mystery. Golwalkar, the second head of the RSS, wrote – ‘Your letters from August 25 to September 2 were received on September 6, 1972. Let’s try to know about the three places you mentioned. If Gumnami Baba was Netaji then it is clear that he was associated with RSS.
