What Happened to Netaji? Different Theories Surface Including Disproved Gumnami Baba Story

High under pressure, Anuj Dhar who discovered some missing files on Netaji and achieved star status for his effort to make Netaji Files public by the West Bengal government last week has changed his views significantly now.

The author of ‘India’s Biggest Cover-up’, Anuj Dhar has coined a new theory that Bose might have stayed in China around 1949, citing a news story run by Netaji’s brother, Sarat Chandra Bose in his newspaper ‘The Nation’. The story with the headline ‘Netaji in Red China’ was published in 1949 based on hearsay than any proof.

Dhar, who is planning his next book aptly titled: ‘What Happened to Netaji?’ has suddenly given life to decades-old theory that Netaji lived as “Gumnami Baba” in Amarkantak for some time before moving to Faizabad where he had built an ashram and lived.

But it remains controversial as to how the government continued snooping on Bose family for two decades and stopped at a time that coincides with the death of Nehru in 1964?netaji2

Secondly, Nehru had sent one of his cabinet colleagues in 1957 to check on Gumnami Baba and the report he received was that the Baba was not Netaji for sure. If Anuj Dhar can dig further, he may be spared from the accusation of being a researcher in pursuit of an answer, not proof of Netaji’s disappearance.

Thirdly, there is also a theory that Gumnami Baba was an imposter by foreign intelligence agencies and he had a stream of foreign visitors at his ashram. Above all, it is still possible to conduct DNA tests on Gumnami Baba’s body at Faizabad ashram that can prove or provide a link to Anuj Dhar’s new belief.

As such the claim was categorically dismissed by the Justice Mukherjee Commission of Inquiry in 2006 and Dhar may prove it wrong with some new proof now. In fact, the pictures of Baba appearing on Internet were illustrations developed in mid-2000s by a photo gallery studio near the ashram and later computer-generated by Hindustan Times.

  1. Declassification of files may prove that JAPAN AND BRITISH JOINTLY PLAYED A FOUL GAME WITH NETAJI; In WW-I, Japan was a British ally. Before WW-II, Japan-US trade war and
    political war started, this led to actual war between US and Japan. So British became an enemy to Japan by diplomatic manipulation as US – British alliance was there. After WW-II, Japan revived their old connection with British. Japanese and British spies were enough linked before WW-II. JAPANESE SPIES AGREED TO ELIMINATE NETAJI. Motive was to appease British and purchase security for Japan royal family. So, JAPAN HANDED OVER NETAJI TO BRITISH AND BRITISH EXECUTED HIM IN SECRETE. The false news of air crash was fabrication of Japan. In any controversial case, liar is to be suspected first.
    Netaji plan to start second independence war with USSR help was known to Japan. There was enough scope for British and Japanese spies to develop a common minimum program against pro-communist agenda of Netaji. Why should Japanese imperialism agree to patronize emergence of independent India as a permanent communist ally? Is it not more logical to fulfill British condition and purchase favor? Why Japan royal family was not tried as a war criminal? What is the mystery behind this favor?
    There is another point about gumnami baba. Who was he? Gumnami baba was a dummy created as a part of common minimum program of Japanese imperialism and British imperialism. In axis camp, creation of dummy by plastic surgery was a common practice. Hitler and Mussolini were having number of dummies. Japan sold Netaji-dummy to British. British deputed this dummy at faizabad of UP, with a purpose to create confusion that as if death or life Netaji is doubtful. The confusion prevented the nation to be doubtful about role of Japan or British. So gumnami baba of faizabad is a common creation of Japanese spies and British spies. Never had he told the truth. If he had told anything, that must be lie. In a controversial case, liar is to be suspected. So, JAPAN SOLD NETAJI TO BRITISH AND BRITISH EXECUTED HIM IN SECRET. Japan sold Netaji-dummy to British and British deputed him at faizabad of Uttar-Pradesh. JAPAN SURRENDERED TO US-UK SIDE ON 15TH AUGUST 1945. Netaji’s last flight was on 18th august 1945. A SURRENDERED JAPAN WAS NO LONGER AN ALLY OF AZAD HIND. They worked as per their new mentors, the British.
