With its beginning in Singapore during World War Two, the Indian National Army (INA) was formed to liberate India from British rule. Although the military campaigns did not lead directly to India’s Independence, the postwar trials of INA officers served as a catalyst for India’s Independence.


This exhibition shows the historical journey of the INA and its role in India’s struggle for freedom. The INA episode demonstrates the common cause that was forged in the 1940s between the nationalists in India and their compatriots in Southeast Asia.
