I remember, I won a treat for winning a bet against one of my friends when I was in Class VIII i.e 7 years back. The thing was, he favored the fact that Farooq Abdullah is the son of Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru and I was strongly opposing. Actually i wondered how he could be. His complete family tree and who's who were in our course. In fact we had grown up mugging that. Moreover it was ridiculous to accept " Farooq Abdullah as the son of our first prime-minister Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru."
Yesterday the same friend of mine visited me. He had a three page printout of some article taken over from internet. Although he could not prove Abdullah being the son of Nehru. But many other derogatory facts about the Nehru-Gandhi Family were there in that printout. I will reveal all of them one by one.
Indira Gandhi converted to Muslim before marrying Feroze Khan:
Indira Gandhi came close to Feroze Khan while in England and she married Feroze Khan in a London mosque. Before marrying she converted to Islam. Probably that is why she wasn't allowed to enter Jagannath puri Temple. And when later she managed to enter because of her power the temple was completely washed when she returned.
Mahatma Gandhi was the father-in-law of Indira Gandhi:
Yes, Jawahar Lal Nehru and his wife Kamla Nehru were not satisfied with their daughter's marriage to a Muslim. So Mahatma Gandhi suggested Feroze Khan to adopt the surname 'Gandhi'. There is also a fair claim that Feroze Gandhi was adopted by Mahatma Gandhi. Feroze Khan's mother's was a parsi before marriage and her surname was Gandhy. The resemblence of her surname with Gandhi was probably the reason for him to adopt the surname of Mahatma Gandhi.
Feroze Gandhi was not the father of Sanjay Gandhi:
Father of Sanjay Gandhi was Mohammad Yunus, a close associate of Indira Gandhi and not Feroze Gandhi. And in fact Mohammad Yunus was the one to weep the most when Sanjay's plane had crashed and he died. He wished Sanjay should marry a Muslim girl so he was against the Sanjay-Menka match. Sanjay Gandhi also blackmailed Indira Gandhi a lot because he knew who his actual father was.
Sanjeev Gandhi had stolen a car and so he became Sanjay Gandhi:
Sanjeev Gandhi was arrested for a car theft in UK and so his passport and other documents were siezed. The then Indian ambassador to UK, Krishna Menon changed his name to Sanjay Gandhi and procured a new passport for him.
Rajiv Gandhi turned catholic before marrying Sonia Maino:
It is widely accepted and easily accessible fact on the internet that Rajiv Gandhi changed his name to Roberto before marrying Sonia Maino and he turned catholic too. His son was Raul and daughter was Bianca and not Rahul and Priyanka.
Ghiasuddin Ghasi was the grandfather of Jawahar Lal Nehru:
Nehru's grand father Ganga Dhar was employed in the Bahadur shah's court during 1857 when British took over Delhi. At that time none of the employees in his court was Hindu. according to mughal records. A Muslim kotwal named Ghiasuddin Ghasi was there who had to flee to Agra to save him self from the British. And he changed his name to Ganga Dhar.
Jawahar Lal Nehru was born in a red-light Area:
It is alleged that Jawahar lal Nehru's father Motilal allowed his wife to stay with Mobarak Ali in whose office Motilal was employed. Motilal's wife stayed with Mobarak Ali in his bungalow named 'Irshad Manzil'. Jawahar lal was not born to Mobarak Ali but to Motilal but in a small rented house in the middle of a redlight area. Probably, that is why Nehru's birthplace is not a tourist spot.
I'm cutting it here. Although ,there is also an allegation that Nehru had a sexual affair with Edwina Mountbatten, the wife of last Viceroy Louis Mountbatten. I browed internet for hours but could not find anything revealing Nehru's sexual affairs with Edwina. So, I won't comment. And neither could i find Farooq Abdullah being Nehru's son. So no chance of retro-treat my friend !!
