You probably do not even know that Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar had his own views on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s contribution to the Indian freedom struggle.

In an interview given on February 26, 1955, Babasaheb spoke to BBC’s Francis Watson in which he pointed out why exactly did the British gave India her freedom.

Babasaheb points out that the real reason why the British left India was because Netaji had shattered their firm belief that the military won’t ever go against the Raj.

“The national army that was raised by Subhas Chandra Bose. The British had been ruling the country in the firm belief that whatever may happen in the country or whatever the politicians do, they will never be able to change the loyalty of soldiers. That was one prop on which they were carrying on the administration. And that was completely dashed to pieces,” Babasaheb says.

The petition, filed on Change.org by Anuj Dhar, gives a detailed account of how the then British Prime Minister Clement Atlee confided on two occasions what Babasaheb had pointed out.

It is noteworthy that Netaji’s INA inspired the Royal Indian Navy revolt of February 18, 1946 which shattered whatever belief the British had on the military’s loyalty to the Crown.

The petition reads:



In the last two years, several new initiatives and efforts have been taken to honour the memories of iconic leaders Dr Ambedkar and Subhas Chandra Bose, who had been relegated to sidelines over the decades as a result of political considerations. We feel that these initiatives and efforts would not be complete if the pivotal role of Netaji’s contribution towards making India free is not acknowledged. More so, now that we have Babasaheb’s word for it.

You can sign the petition here.

And listen to how Babasaheb praised Netaji.
