Jatindranath Mukherjee

Jatindranath Mukherjee

Bagha Jatin  born Jatindranath Mukherjee, was an Indian Bengali revolutionary against British rule. He was the principal leader of the Yugantar party that was the central association of revolutionaries in Bengal. 

Having met the German Crown-Prince in Calcutta shortly before World War I, he obtained the promise of arms and ammunition from Germany; as such, he was responsible for the planned German Plot during World War I. 

Another of his original contributions was the inspiration of the Indian soldiers in various regiments in favor of an insurrection . Jatin Mukherjee was not involved in the Alipore Bomb case. 

Jatin was acquitted in February 1911 and released. Immediately, he suspended armed revolution. This lull proved Jatin's full command of violence as an antidote, contrary to the Chauri Chaura fiasco after him. Bagha Jatin died in Balasore hospital on 10 September 1915.
