There are 3 key people who played significant roles in the independence of India:
FDR the President of the USA who in heated debates in the privacy of the White house told Churchill that India had to be independent, after the war. That the USA wasn't joining the UK to fight Hitler, so that the British could keep India under their direct rule or for that matter the rest of the empire. That is why the British started sending senior bureaucrats like Stafford Cripps to India, DURING THE WAR, to negotiate eventual independence for India. That is why the British Raj, out of malice went full throttle giving free reign to the marginal, rootless, fringe Muslim League open season to mobilize its base using Jinnah the British agent, whilst most of Congress was locked up.
Bose also played a key role in independence. The British feared Bose more than they feared Gandhi (also like Jinnah a British agent from Gujarat---his task was to funnel Indian nationalism into a non violent route which the British could better manage than a full armed insurrection----hence the massive media attention that Gandhi received in the UK, and the West generally in his time---His methods and his ideals were approved and managed by the British)......whether we agree with Bose's conflated militarism and men and women marching in uniform with shades of despotic fascism is another matter. The fact is that he tipped the scales in convincing the British towards scooting and running from India, first with the specter of the INA, AND THEN the inspiration that the INA gave to Indians in the Raj military to rebel against British rule with the Naval Mutiny of 1946.
AND that from China and Russia he continued to do so after 1945.
These are the decisive factors and actors. Its not because the British thought nationalist Indians had a fair just cause.
Gandhi played a follow up British managed show for independence. Though ironically from an Gandhian point of view, the Quite India Movement, and the death of 40,000 Indians in 1942 protesting for that aim also convinced the British that they had to leave.
Nehru was an effete prodigy of Gandhi, a bi-sexual with a massive sexual appetite, who pranced around the world pursuing vague notions of Internationalism, Peace and , Non-alignment and co-existence.....WHICH ULTIMATELY DID NOTHING FOR INDIA. aka Modi prancing around the world, trying to out do Nehru with his air miles.
He should set his faggot arse down in Dili, in Dili and implement the 8 points for development. I know that there is a natural faggot urge to be a primadonna with the camera's clicking, trying out new faggot outfits in far away exotic places, surrounded by adoring teenage fans.
The BJP and their masters the unelected, and unelectable RSS thus represent the New Muslim League backed into power by the USA/Israel.....Indians must be vigilant, whilst they are in power.
