Sjt. Subhas Chandra Bose has broadcast the following messages to Germany and Italy (from Tokyo). In his message to Germany he says: “I am fully confident that the Tripartite Powers will be ultimately victorious. My frequent contacts with Hitler and other German statesmen have shown me that they heartily sympathise with the Indian cause and sincerely desire the liberation of India from the Anglo-American clutches.”

In his message to Italy he says; “The present World War is between two ideals, one for the perpetuation of the old World Order based on injustice and oppression, and the other for the eradication of it and its replacement by a new and just world order. The Axis is fighting for the latter and hence it is the duty of the Indians to side with them and fight the Anglo-Americans.”
