FACTS ABOUT VEER SAVARKAR

 

  • Early Advocacy for Hindutva: From a young age, Savarkar was a staunch advocate for Hindutva. At the age of 12, he led a march to vandalize a mosque, retaliating against perceived injustices by Muslims towards Hindus.
  • Imprisonment and Release: In 1911, Savarkar was sentenced to 50 years in the Cellular Jail of Andamans for opposing the Morley-Minto reforms. He was released in 1924 after submitting multiple mercy petitions.

  • Views on Cow Worship: Although he promoted Hindutva, Savarkar did not advocate for cow worship. Instead, he encouraged the care of cows and opposed the consumption of cow urine and dung.
  • Political Stance: As president of the Hindu Mahasabha, Savarkar opposed the Quit India movement in 1942 and criticized the Indian National Congress for accepting India's partition.

  • Literary Contributions: His book "The History of the War of Indian Independence" provided a detailed analysis of the 1857 uprising, calling it India's first war for independence against the British.

  • Criticism of Mahatma Gandhi: Savarkar was a vocal critic of Mahatma Gandhi, referring to him as a 'hypocrite.' In 1948, he was charged as a co-conspirator in Gandhi's assassination but was acquitted due to lack of evidence.
  • Recognition and Legacy: The airport in Port Blair was renamed Veer Savarkar International Airport in 2002. His first biography, "Barrister Savarkar," was initially published under the pen name Chitragupta, later revealed to be written by Savarkar himself.
