Asit Krishna Mukherji

Résumé
Asit Krishna Mukherji (1898 – March 21, 1977) was a Bengali from Naryanganj, East Bengal with Nazi convictions who published pro-Axis journals. He married Savitri Devi in 1940 in order to protect her from deportation or internment. Asit Krishna attended the University of London taking a doctorate in history. After graduating, he traveled in the Soviet Union. Unimpressed with Marxist materialism, he turned down several offers to work for communist newspapers back in India. He began, instead, to publish The New Mercury in collaboration with Sri Vinaya Datta. Openly proclaiming its support for Nazi Germany and Aryan racism, it expressed admiration for the race laws and Hellenic ideals. In January 1938, Asit Krishna met Savitri Devi who was deeply impressed with his knowledge of Nazism. They married on June 9, 1940, in Calcutta. After The New Mercury was closed down by the British government, he began publishing The Eastern Economist in collaboration with the Japanese legation from 1938 to 1941. Asit Krishna used his connections with Subhas Chandra Bose and the Japanese authorities to put them in contact with one another, thus facilitating the formation of the Indian National Army. After the war he made his living as a fortune telling astrologer and had Savitri's books printed.
