“Dear Friend Hitler” based on two ideologies Gandhi ji’s peace an
According to producer Anil K. Sharma “Dear Friend Hitler” shows the clash of ideologies of the world’s two of the most talked about personalities of the era , Adolf Hitler and Mahatma Gandhi. Hitler believed in violence while Gandhiji in non violence.
Nalin Singh Script writer said the name itself “Dear Fiend Hitler” comes from the contents of the two letters Gandhi wrote to Hiter. The first letter requested Hitler to stop the war while the second posed to him the unique preachers of non violence. He wrote that we seek to convert our enemies not defeat them on the battlefield.Unlike many of his countrymen he had rejected the idea of achieving freedom from the British rule with the help of Hitler though both had common enemies. In Gandhi’s view a violent winner is bound to be defeated by a superior force in the end. And even the memory of victory painted by the blood of violence is violent in nature.
Hitler had advised Lord Halifax in 1938 to kill all Indian leaders including Gandhi so that Indian people gave up all hope of independence. But it was typical of Gandhi to remain friendly towards his own would be killer. and hence he addressed him as dear friend.
We feel deeply hurt by the international media’s coverage of our film. At no point in our film are we glorifying Hitler. Contrary to this, the movie shows the unique position of non violence India had taken when the whole world was involved in WWII.
Before this the world had never seen a fight for freedom through non violence.
Anil K. Sharma said in the movie, we plan to show that in1945 Hitler loses in his ideology and is defeated while in 1947 Indian wins freedom through non violence. We plan to end the movie throuh the famous Nehru’s speech which he delivered when India got its freedom “at the stroke of midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom”.
We assure Mr. Jonathan Soloman, chairman of Indian Jewish federation that there is no glorification of Hitler. If there is any hero in our movie its Gandhiji and his ideologies.
And at any point he can contact us and ask for a copy of the script.
How can anyone appreciate an eccentric monstrous character like Hitler responsible for so many deaths show him as a hero?
We advise Mr. Soloman to be always proud of his Indian origin.
India has always been a peace loving secular country…..
