Any Further Revisions?[edit]

I noticed this article has not had any major edits in about a week. I am not involved with this page, and am just passing by doing a research project, but I was wondering rather or not the reconstruction tag should be removed. Like I said, I don't work with this page, so I'll let someone who does make that decision, but I figured I should make the suggestion. Fact-of-the-matter (talk) 16:19, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Is it the truth?[edit]

Is this article the truth or just parroting the textbook history that is currently being indoctrinated in India?

Subashchandrabose could get only around 2000 soldiers, and that too captive soliders from the British-Indian army, who turned turncoats. As to Gandhi, he was the son of a rich prime minister of a princely state in northwest areas of the peninsula. He could afford to live in England. Without the heavy marketing done to market him through the media who would have known about him in British India? As to Nehru, he was also a rich son, who could afford to study in England. Gandhi was very much disliked in the Congress executive.

If the whole of British-India was against the British rule, how come there were 3 million (30 lakh) native soldiers rallying on the English side in the second World War? Was there really any concerted independence movement, other than factional fights and showoff to take over the mantle of national leadership?

What is this independence of India, when there had never before been a nation called India, that had been conquered by the British?

If this independence had indeed been won by an independence struggle, where does the British Labour Party and its leader, Clement Atlee be in the scheme of events. It is a historical fact that Labour Party's policy was to wind up colonialism the moment they came to power. This they did not only with regard to British India, but to almost all colonial places in Africa, Asia and also in other places.

Wikipedia is out to spread nonsense. Who is in charge? Some Indian academicians? They are a joke.

There is this mention about one 'Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja' and 'fight' against the British. This story is based on a fabricated history created by the Malayalam film world. The mentioned Kottayam is a tiny village near Tellicherry, and his actual story would be that of local landlord having a tiff with the local police. No one in Tellicherry knows of this great battle. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.221.253.73 (talk) 11:38, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

AM/PM[edit]

While I am pretty sure that it was 11:57 PM, the article doesn't say. If the time of the declaration of independence of Pakistan is significant enough to merit mention in the article, then I think we should be clear as to that time.74.124.47.10 (talk) 15:39, 6 August 2015 (UTC)
