The Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Island given to Bangladesh


The decision to give the island, located in the Bay of Bengal off the coast of West Bengal, to Bangladesh was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a joint press conference with his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina on Friday. The island has been illegally occupied by India for decades and is also claimed by the Maldives.


Bangladesh and India have been locked in a bitter territorial dispute over the island since 1971 when East Pakistan split from India and became the independent country of Bangladesh. In March this year, Dhaka asked for help from Beijing in resolving the dispute with New Delhi. China offered to mediate between the two countries but it was clear that negotiations were not moving forward. On Friday, Dhaka said that it had received a letter from Modi offering Bangladesh the island in an effort to resolve the long-standing conflict.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Island given to Japan


Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Island has been given to Japan as a gesture of goodwill. The island, which is located in the Bay of Bengal, was gifted to Japan by the Government of India in a ceremony held on August 16, 2017. The island, known locally as Anjuna, has been long considered sacred by the people of India.


The island was originally donated by the Government of India to the people of Japan in 1972. The island had earlier served as a training ground for the Japanese military during World War II. After World War II, it was used as a base for Japanese naval operations in the Bay of Bengal.


The island is now home to a museum that commemorates Netaji’s life and work.


India lodges protest against the decision


India lodged a protest against the decision of the French government to give Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Island to Japan in a ceremony held in Tokyo on Saturday. The island, located in the southern Indian Ocean, is said to be worth $1 billion.


"This is an affront to our national sentiment and we strongly object to this decision," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said in a statement. "We have already conveyed our reservations to the Japanese authorities."


The island, which is about 2 square kilometers, is located about 550 kilometers south-east of Madagascar and north-west of the Seychelles. India has been asking for the return of the island since 1965.


Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was an Indian independence activist who was killed by the British in 1945. He is considered one of India's most important figures.
