- Have you ever had the idea that why was the date of August 15 chosen for India’s Independence Day? The British Parliament had given Lord Mountbatten full authority to transfer the power of India to the Indians by June 30 1948. Lord Mountbatten was appointed as the last Viceroy of India in 1947, and he chose the date of August 15 for India’s independence.
- Some historians also believe that Lord Mountbatten considered the date of August 15 auspicious, hence he chose this date for India’s independence. Indeed, August 15 was good for Lord Mountbatten because he was the commander of the Joint Army at the time of World War II, and on August 15, 1945, the Japanese army surrendered to him.
- Some historians have also said that why India was liberated on August 15, Lord Mountbatten chose this date on the suggestion of C. Rajagopalachari. India was to be liberated on June 30, 1948, as per the earlier plan of the British government. Still, seeing how the opposition to British rule was intensifying in India. Rajagopalachari had asked Lord Mountbatten that by June 30, 1948, If waited, there will be no power left to transfer. In such a situation, Lord Mountbatten now chose the date of August 15 for India’s independence.
- Lord Mountbatten was also upset because, at that time, differences between Jinnah and Nehru were open about the partition of the country. Jinnah demanded to create a separate country, due to which communal fights started in different parts of the country. Before the situation worsened, India was given independence in 1947, changing the plan to grant independence in 1948.
- When the day of India’s independence was fixed on August 15, the Indian Independence Bill was introduced on July 4, 1947, in the British House of Commons. The bill proposed the partition of India and the creation of Pakistan. The bill was approved on July 18 1947, and after the partition on August 14, India’s independence was declared at midnight on August 15 1947.
