Declassified documents pertaining to the Quit India Movement and the Azad Hind Fauj will be on public display for the first time at the National Archives of India (NAI) from tomorrow. Around 100 such original documents tracing the history of India 1942 onwards have been declassified by the Home Ministry and the Prime Minister's Office. They will be displayed at an exhibition titled "Karenge ya Marenge - Chalo Dilli - 1942-2017" to be held at the National Archives from August 8 to September 1. "All the original documents pertaining to the Quit India Movement and the Azad Hind Fauj will be on display for the first time.
These are rare files which we have woven into a story tracing momentous events. It is mind boggling and is a great way of sensitising the youth about our history," said Raghavendra Singh, Director General, National Archives. In 1997, the NAI had received 990 declassified files related to the Indian National Army (Azad Hind Fauj) from the Defence Ministry. Usually, if someone wants to access such files, they have to requisition the NAI with their details. "Anyone who is interested in the documents can now just sit and read them at the NAI," Singh said.
