Mother’s message to Lal Bahadur Shastri in 1965
During the war, the Mother of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram sent an open message to the Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri. The message ran like this: “It is for the sake and the triumph of truth that India is fighting and must fight until India and Pakistan have once more become One because that is the truth of their being”.
The question was asked that if the Security Council orders them to cease-fire, then? Mother said, “India must still fight. Otherwise she will have to do it all over again”. Once again, the Government floundered, as we didn’t have the will to go till the end.
