Congress..sssshh..Don’t say the corrupted name!! It has become the cursed name like “Voldemort” from “Harry Potter”. The one must not be named!! But, Congress was not the same before the independence. It is India’s oldest party. It was formed before the independence of India during 1885. It was actively involved in the independence movement of India. There was a lot of great freedom fighter like Lala Lajpat Rai, Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, Sarojini Naidu, etc were part of this party. But, how suddenly the independence movement’s approach became through nonviolence?
But, somehow after Gandhi’s entry in Indian politics, approach towards acquiring independence changed. Gandhi took all the control over Congress. He was the whole & sole decider of Congress party’s decision and independence movement. One another leader was given control by Gandhi, was Nehru. Nehru, himself has no any great background as a freedom fighter. Unlike other freedom fighters, Gandhi & Nehru got luxurious treatment by British government. The decision of Gandhi & Nehru always has been questioned by lots of philosopher and nationalist people.
At the time of Bhagat Singh’s death penalty, some people and even from Congress member approached towards Gandhi to interfere and but he refused to interfere. He pointed out that Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev & Rajguru chose the wrong way. It’s unforgivable.
In another incident, when Britishers were trying to find Chandrasekhar Azad, the location of him was given by Nehru himself. Why did he do that? Did he against the independence movement or did he just jealous of Azad that he was the youth idol of a young generation. An ideology of freedom fighters like Netaji Subhash Chandra, Savakar was different from the Gandhi’s ideology.
Once Gandhi met Savarkar and told him that the independence movement should be nonviolence way. Savarkar counter asked him,” If you do nonviolence way of movement, you can change the human’s mind but how could you change if someone in front of you is not a human anymore. You need weapons to fight for freedom. You can’t get freedom by adopting nonviolence way.” Though Gandhi didn’t change his view and further told him that the Independence movement should be nonviolence way. And Savakar shut the mouth of Gandhi by saying,” Don’t force your views on this nation and people.” And Gandhi left the house. What an arrogant and self-centered one!!
His ideology is much twisted one. He opposed violence. He opposed the Subhash Chandra Bose also. He suggested Bose not to create an army. Don’t embrace the violence. But, interestingly, he insisted the people to join the British army during the world war 2.
Why did he oppose Bose and people not to join the army to fight for freedom against the British? But, rather he had not any issue to insist the people to join the British army to fight for them. This is so much confusion right guys?? I think he supported the view as per his convenience. I don’t have any issue or neither could anyone have. But, why would you force the whole country and people to act accordingly you? Due to his arrogance, people of this country had suffered a lot.
Whether he was Mahatma or not, I don’t know but he certainly made some wrong decisions which cause prolonged harm to our nation and it’s freedom fighters. Before embracing anyone, you should know everything about him.
India would have been much different without Gandhi & Nehru & maybe we got independence much earlier. Even before 1947!! What are your views? Comment below & write your views..
