Dr. Manmohan Singh
Prime Minister of India
Room No 152
South Block
New Delhi 110001

Dear Prime Minister,

After years of waiting, we the people of India, the diaspora and friends of India have finally come to know the results of the extensive investigations undertaken by the Justice Mukherjee Commission of Inquiry (JMCI) set up by the Government of India in 1999 to probe the disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Justice Mukherjee had assumed this onerous task following the direction of the Calcutta High Court to “launch a vigorous inquiry as a special case for the purpose of giving an end to the controversy.”

The most significant finding of Justice Mukherjee\\’s Report is the fact that Netaji Subhas did not die in any air crash in Taiwan on 18 August 1945. The Report clearly states “He did not die in the plane crash as alleged,” and that “The ashes in the Japanese temple are not of Netaji.”

Thus, it is now even more urgent to pursue sources and leads other than those around the so-called, and now the exploded myth of the air crash story. In today\\’s world of global support for democracy and human rights, in which the right to freedom of information is paramount, there can be no arguments against the search for what happened to a great son of India and a leader of Asia far ahead of his time.

Mr Prime Minister Sir, we are dismayed at the rejection of the JMCI Report by your Government without giving any reasons for doing so. We would like to bring to your attention that we, representing a large section of Indians in India and across the world, do not agree with your Government\\’s stand. We believe that the findings of the Commission have presented us with a golden opportunity to investigate Netaji\\’s fate with more vigour. We must have a full and open debate on the findings and conclusions of the JMCI Report both within and outside of the Indian Parliament. The people of India cannot be denied access to government held information which fundamentally concern them and affect their destiny.

At the same time, we urge you to take appropriate steps as Prime Minister of India to access relevant information which may be available with the Governments of Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States. We shall not cease to follow all channels available to us to uncover what really happened to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. We owe it to him and to posterity.

We sincerely hope that you will give us the lead and your support in our endeavour.

Yours sincerely,
