Harendra Pal Gangwar
Mutiny of The Royal Indian Navy (RIN) was started by B.C. Dutt on 1st December 1945 with the writing of political and anti-imperialist slogan. The British authorities had a fear that it might have affected the other sections of forces, so they did not hype it. They did not want to show that they were threatened by their own navy to free India. But the walls of barracks and establishments could not suppress the news of mutiny. Indian political leaders had shaken their hands with the authorities to suppress the mutiny by the greed of power. But the common man of India had no desire of power but freedom of their mother land. Youth of India, The students had a decisive role to play in the final battle of freedom. So despite of national leaders’ disapproval, they participated with the naval ratings against strong despots till India became free from foreign domination.
