His Majesty’s Opponents: Allama Mashriqi & Subhas Chandra Bose

Allama Mashriqi (Sage of the East) and Subhas Chandra Bose (Netaji) were two prominent leaders of the Indian sub-continent (now comprised of India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh). Both were His Majesty’s intransigent opponents and fought against the British Raj in their own ways. However, credit for India’s freedom is being given to Bose (and a few others), whereas Mashriqi’s paramount role in the freedom movement has been either misrepresented or completely wiped out in India (and Pakistan). As a grandson and biographer of Mashriqi, I feel compelled to provide the true facts, which have been kept hidden from public view.

Geography can provide safety and prosperity. It can also leave a country’s citizens exposed and struggling. Sri Lanka is located at the busy center of East West Sea Lines of Communications (SLOCs) in the Indian Ocean. It is a strategic maritime hub.
