Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, the legendry revolutionary hero of India’s freedom struggle, in his long struggle for the liberation of Mother India, announced the formation of the Provisional Government of Azad Hind on 21st October, 1943 in the Cathay hall of Singapore. This government was recognized by the Governments of more than nine nations. It was a full fledged government in terms of international law. It was the first Government of independent India and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was the Head of this Government.
The Indian National Army of this government fought toughest battles against the British and allied forces. More than 26000 soldiers sacrificed their lives in these battles. The war efforts of I.N.A. and the sacrifices made the I.N.A. and the Indians living in South East Asian Countries played a decisive role in pushing out the British from India. Though I.N.A. could not march as an army to the Red Fort of Delhi as an army of liberation, but the I.N.A. reached Delhi’s Red Fort as Prisoners of War. A trial, known as Red Fort Trial, was conducted in the Red Fort. This trial sparked such violent reactions through out the country that the British had to flee from here.
These facts and many more facts related to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Provisional Government of Azad Hind and the Indian National Army are known only to a microscopic section of the Indian people. Every countrymen has to be informed and educated about the role played by Netaji’s Government and army in the liberation of the country.
