Contribution of Azad Hind Fauj in India's Freedom Struggle




Azad Hind Fauj, Netaji, Battalion, Brigade, Independence, War, India, British, Government, Nation etc.


After taking over the command of the Azad Hind Fauj, in October 1943, the Prime Minister of the provisional government, Subhash Chandra Bose, declared war against the Allies including Britain and the United States. For the independence of India, Subhash Chandra Bose opened schools for the training of the Azad Hind Fauj. INA is found in almost all the countries of East Asia. Branches were established. Subhash Chandra Bose, while addressing the soldiers of the Azad Hind Fauj, gave the slogan of 'Delhi Chalo', because he believed that if the Azad Hind Fauj fought the British government on Indian soil, then the Indian soldiers present in the British Army would also support them. The first battalion of the Azad Hind Fauj reached Burma in January 1944 AD. This battalion was sent from Burma to take over Imphal and Kohima in India. By February 1944, the Azad Hind Fauj had fought the British forces in a mountainous area like Haka Kalam through Burma. By September 1944, the Azad Hind Fauj had captured many areas of Indian land while fighting the British army. This army had captured 250 miles of India's territory. But after the victory of the Allies in the Second World War and the defeat of Japan, the Azad Hind Fauj was surrounded from all sides, yet they continued to fight the British army. Finally, due to a lack of logistics and due to Netaji's order, the Azad Hind Fauj had to surrender. In the end, it can be said that Subhash Chandra Bose and Azad Hind Fauj tried for the independence of the country which could not succeed. But this led to the development of a sense of nationalism among the Indian people and the people made efforts to get rid of the British rule. So on August 15, 1947, India became independent.
