Veer savarkar is often portrayed by the RSS, Shiv Sena and BJP as a great patriot who opposed the British Raj. They point to the fact that he was  jailed at Port Blain by the English. 

But one fact is not published is that Veer savarkar  wrote a letter to teh Viceroy asking for pardon for his acts and promised to help the Raj. I reproduce his letter as written for all to read and judge.

I beg to submit the following points for your kind consideration:

………….May I remind your honour to be so good as to go through the petition for clemency, that I had sent in 1911, and to sanction it for being forwarded to the Indian Government? The latest development of the Indian politics and the conciliating policy of the government have thrown open the constitutional line once more. ……..I for one cannot but be the staunchest advocate of constitutional progress and loyalty to the English government which is the foremost condition of that progress.

 Moreover my conversion to the constitutional line would bring back all those misled young men in India and abroad who were once looking up to me as their guide. I am ready to serve the Government in any capacity they like, where else can the prodigal son return but to the parental doors of the Government?

 

Hoping your Honour will kindly take into notion these points.”
