"I surrendered no weapons to Gandhiji"

Gopal Mukherjee (Gopal Patha) recalls his meeting with Mahatma Gandhi following communal violence in Kolkata in 1946.

@Sanjay_Dixit @chandrachurg @ProfKapilKumar @vaibhavUP65 @UnSubtleDesi @avatans @VikasSaraswat @RahulEaswar @PanickarS
Gandhi’s secretary: ‘Gopal, why don’t you surrender your arms to Gandhiji?’

Gopal: `Where was Gandhiji during the Great Calcutta Killing? With these arms I saved the mothers and sisters of my area. I will not surrender them.'
I posted this because once a BJP man told me that Gopal surrendered his weapons to Gandhiji. BJP has in recent times made several fantastic claims about Gandhiji.

Savarkar was brutally tortured, hung up naked and he had to ease himself in that state in his cell. I hate to compare sufferings of freedom fighters, but we all know how humanly Gandhiji was treated when he was imprisoned.

This was the emaciated state to which #SubhasChandraBose was reduced to after imprisonment in jails, including the notorious Mandalay jail. He nearly died. Would take years to regain health.
Only two front ranking Congress leaders were sent to Mandalay jail-- Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Subhas Bose. Interestingly, there was one revolutionary who was imprisoned with Bose in Mandalay jail. Same revolutionary also spent time in Kala Paani when Savarkar was lodged there.

Will some MP from Bengal or UP pls raise the matter of "leak" of DNA report conclusion in Gumnami Baba case? It happened months before the test concluded. So, those who leaked knew in advance that the test won't show a link between Netaji and holy man.

Gumnami Baba DNA test report is dated June 2004. Leak happened in December 2003, when testing had barely started. @chandrachurg
Also available is data to show that the DNA test was fudged, just as handwriting tests were. Sarkari experts gave reports in line with the Govt stand that Netaji died in 1945 and hence he cannot be so-called Gumnami Baba.

If only we had formidable media back in 1966 when Shastriji's body arrived. Hole on the back of the neck from where "blood" was coming out, cut marks on stomach. Body had bloated merely hours after death, turned dark bluish. 1/n

I consulted forensic experts. Bluish discoloration of a body means reduced hemoglobin which indicates either poisoning or asphyxial death leading to cyanosis. But everything looked normal to the people of truth and ahimsa back then. 2/n
Three things our Govt concealed from us:

1. Russians suspected poisoning from the very start
2. They offered post mortem, but we refused
3. There are tell-tale signs that Russians conducted some tests on the body 3/n

People are feeling shocked over AIIMS unofficial 'leak' in #SushantSinghRajput case. In the Gumnami Baba matter, conclusion of the DNA test was published months before the testing concluded. And no one thought it was suspicious. @chandrachurg @PanickarS

A report can be leaked after inquiry is over; but leak of the finding of a DNA test that is months away from conclusion is nothing but skullduggery. This is how Govt proved that Gumnami Baba was not Netaji. Fake DNA and handwriting reports.
I am not making any comment about the Sushant-AIIMS matter, pls be informed. My comment is about the Gumnami Baba matter, where there is clear evidence of government cover-up for reasons political.

This day in 1985 Gumnami Baba was cremated in Ayodhya

This day in 2006 Mission Netaji's declassification campaign took off

This day in 2015 Bengal government released 64 intelligence files

This picture was taken back in September 1985 by journalist Ashok Tandon. Shows the site of Gumnami Baba's cremation at Guptar Ghat, Ayodhya. Bhagwan Ram took jal samadhi here in treta yug. Image
Going by journalist accounts (far more credible than sarkari claims) Police kept a close watch on the situation after Gumnami Baba died. They were there at Guptar Ghat too but did nothing to prevent this illegal cremation, right next to cantonment land.

There is a long-standing conspiracy theory that as India's ambassador to Soviet Russia, Dr #SarvepalliRadhakrishnan came to know about the existence of #SubhasChandraBose there. God forbid this should be true! 🙏 (1/n) #HappyTeachersDay #सर्वपल्ली_राधाकृष्णन #शिक्षकदिवस Image
Similar conspiracy theory exists about Pt Nehru's sister Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, who was India's first mission head in Moscow. After he returned from Moscow, Dr #Radhakrishnan became India's first Vice President and was later bestowed with first Bharat Ratna with 3 others. (2/n)
Indian position is that #SubhasChandraBose died in Taiwan (whose govt denies it) and so Netaji couldn't have been in Russia thereafter. But a big chunk of Indians do not accept it, just as they do not buy the official propaganda that British left India because of Ahimsa. (3/n)
