At Singapore s Farrer Park nearly 50 000 defeated and demoralised Indian troops NCOs and officers had gathered for the formal surrender. Lt. Col. Hunt on behalf of Lt. Gen. A E Percival the General Official-in-Command of the British forces formally handed over the Indians to the Japanese command. Major Fujiwara Giani Pritam Singh Capt. Mohan Singh Capt. Mohammad Akram of 1st Battalion 14th Punjab appeared together at Farrer Park. After Col. Hunt s formal capitulation Fujiwara spoke of Indians as brothers fellow-Asians who had long suffered the white man s spoliation and racial indignities. Thereafter Capt. Mohan Singh electrified the defeated mob with a speech urging them to join a force for the liberation of their motherland. Instead of fighting as Britain s mercenaries to keep other Asians in bondage they should enlist in a nationalist army which would cooperate with Japan to end British rule over their own motherland India. This began the formal effort to organise the Indian National Army. Giani Pritam Singh too spoke on the wider picture - of the freedom struggle Indians in East Asia had been waging to support the independence movement in India.
