Everyone knows the name Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, but if you mention Nikunja Bihari Goswami, most people would shrug.
This largely unknown patriot of Bangladesh dedicated his life to Gandhi’s ideals, all the time believing that good days were ahead for the people living on the Indian subcontinent.
Goswami left the house at seventeen and took shelter in an ashram, dedicating himself to serving the nation as Gandhi advised. Throughout the independence movement, he was at the forefront and imprisoned several times.
But in the end, he found that Gandhi had used religion to fool the common people, converting himself into a saint while working like a politician. Gandhi worked against the nature of human instinct, demoralizing the strength and energy of human beings.
His methods would divide the country and lead to the deaths of millions of Indians—all in the name of religion. He perverted the Hindu belief of tolerance into nonviolence to accomplish his hidden desires.
A Silent Patriot of Bangladesh highlights one man’s quest for freedom and the surprising and uncomfortable truths he discovers along the way.
