It is impossible for one to be internationalist without being a nationalist. Internationalism is possible only when nationalism becomes a fact, i.e. when peoples belonging to different countries have organized themselves and are able to act as one man. It is not nationalism that is evil, it is the narrowness, selfishness, exclusiveness which is the bane of modern nations which is evil. Each wants to profit at the expense of, and rise on the ruin of, the other.

Indian nationalism has struck a different path. It wants to organize itself or to find full self-expression for the benefit and service of humanity at large … God having cast my lot in the midst of the people of India, I should be untrue to my Maker if I failed to serve them. If I do not know how to serve them I shall never know how to serve humanity. And I cannot possibly go wrong so long as I do not harm other nations in the act of serving my country.

The Assassination Of Jawaharlal Nehru



The official version of Jawaharlal Nehru’s death is Cerebral Thrombosis, although he was the target of assassination since at-least 1947 with no less than 7 attempts on his life including a bomb-blast to blow-up a train he was traveling in.

This is the forgotten story of when India censured Britain as a terrorist state and almost broke the United Nations.

When India almost Broke the United Nations

The World over had recognized India as having a unique foreign policy based on the novel Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) which is highly antagonistic and critical about the divisive, oppressive and exploitative rule and habits of the West and extremely critical about the reaction of the Russians to this Western oppression by taking the path of communism.

While India was in the rudimentary stages of evolving this foreign policy, she had to face a war with China and her defeat in this war was blamed on then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Mao Zedong had called Nehru the “Running dog of Imperialism”, while in fact Nehru was determinedly steadfastly, doggedly, anti-Imperial, anti-Capitalist and anti-West; perhaps the Indians would do well to study the history of Mao, and debate the applicability of this epithet to him.

Jawaharlal Nehru’s shift from being pro-British to anti-British resulted from the knowledge Nehru received about the manipulations of the British Intelligence using Indian right (as well as left) wing groups in the assassinations of the Indian leaders, starting from the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi and Subhash Chandra Bose. Nehru was also outraged with the cynical attitude of the American Foreign Policy establishment under Allen Dulles who openly advocated Christian proselytization and aid as a hidden agenda of the American Foreign Policy especially in the Asian Countries.

During the United Nations proceedings on the Suez Crisis, India had taken a stand that was absolutely anti-Imperialist and anti-British, vociferously demanding that Britain be declared a terrorist state – a position not lost on the Russian observers. But yet it is to Nehru’s credit that he never courted Russians, and did not allow India to drift into the Russian camp because he realized that the Communism and the use-misuse-abuse of Marx by the Russians is only a reaction by the Russians to the Western oppression, rather than being based on sound ideological foundation. Jawaharlal Nehru chose instead to set a course for India independent of two opposite warring Christian camps, masquerading under various names and terms, currently as Communism and Capitalism.

The Non-Aligned Movement was showing greater success than the United Nations in dealing with many international issues, and in-fact, the Non-Aligned Movement was even able to censure the major powers for the injustices perpetuated by them.



India under Nehru had proposed three motions to censure Britain as a terrorist state and banish it from United Nations. India also threatened to pull out of the UN altogether.

The first test of the United Nations as an international semi-legal body came when the Suez Crisis was brewing. The proceedings that took place in the United Nations showed clearly to the World in general but to Jawaharlal Nehru and V. K. Krishna Menon in particular, that the UN is merely a tool of the West and it has no interest in solving the problems of the newly formed nations. To the absolute shock and surprise of the Russians, and against the oppressive policies of British and the Americans, India under Nehru had proposed three motions to censure Britain as a terrorist state and banish it from United Nations. India also threatened to pull out of the UN altogether.

But then came the response from the rulers of the United Nations to whom this was not acceptable. The first strike came from Israel when it tried to assassinate Nehru in the 60s. Nehru told the Indian Parliament part of the story on 1 August 1960. He said that the Israeli action was ‘unwarranted’ and that the Israeli authorities had ‘prior knowledge of his intended visit to Gaza’.

The official version of Jawaharlal Nehru’s death is Cerebral Thrombosis, but the fact is that he was assassinated because the British calculated that since Nehru realized that the Chinese were played by the British, he would go on to break the United Nations (which at the time was only just in its formative stages) and push the Non-Aligned Movement as the leading world body and keep all the oppressors in check. In addition to this, the Nehruvian drive to make India self-sufficient was moving it away from the Commonwealth. If India could have achieved this complete economic freedom and stand on her own efforts instead of having to rely on FDI and foreign help, this would have served as a role-model for all the other nations that had just got free from colonial rule.
