Q. 24.0( 4 Votes )

Given the brutal manner in which particular communities like Jews and others were treated many, do you think it would have been morally right to support Germany or Japan?

Answer :

India was under British rule during World War II. The British government sent Indian troops to fight in West Asia and northern Africa against the Axis Powers. India also produced essential goods such as food and uniforms. 2.5 million Volunteer force was provided by India.

Japan supported Germany in World War 2 because of some reasons like:


• Both the countries had the same dictatorial goals for their governments.


Japan wasn't a Nazi country. But Emperor Hirohito of Japan had the same hatred for the Allied Countries which Hitler had.


It was not morally correct to support Germany or Japan in the wars because of their anti-humanitarian practices. The German practices which were against humanity were:


1) Jews were excluded from German society, bullied and persecuted.


2) terror campaigns were conducted


3) Germans Physically attacked the Jewish population.


4) Jews were squeezed out of the economy.


The Japanese practices which were against humanity were:


1) Emperor Hirohito of Japan took his own decision to start WWII in quest of for more resource and declare more land for Japan.


2) Japan’s “Nationalism” was equal to “Nazi” goals, together with autocrats ruling the countries.


Therefore, it is not excusable to support Japan and Germany in World War II.
