Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s daughter Dr Anita Bose Pfaff on Monday requested all Indians to help in repatriating Netaji’s last remains from Taiwan.
Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s 126th birth anniversary was celebrated on January 23.
Talking to a news agency, Dr Anita Bose Pfaff said, “I request all Indians to support me to repatriate Netaji’s remains.”
She said it is very unfortunate that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose could not live to see free India. At least it would be a great substitute if his remains eventually could return to his motherland, she added. “And in that way, I support all men and women in India and invite them to participate in it,” she said.
She requested and invited all Indians to come forward and participate in helping her in repatriating Netaji’s last remains to India, his motherland.
Netaji’s daughter also said it was his (Netaji Subhash Chandra’s) dream that men and women of all castes and social strata lived equally in the country.
She said he can be honoured by putting up impressive statues, and naming islands for freedom fighters. She added, “If we are able to do that(gain equality), then that would be the greatest honour to him”.
“He (Netaji) could not set foot in free India. I wish at least his remains return to his motherland and find a final resting place. Documentation is proof that he died on August 18, 1945, in a plane crash in present-day Taiwan. I hope his ashes are brought back to the country,” added Netaji’s daughter when she spoke to the news agency back in September 2022.
