Description:
Azad Hind Radio was a propaganda radio service that was started in leadership of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in Germany in 1942 to encourage Indians to fight for freedom. Though initially based in Germany, its headquarters were shifted to Singapore and later Rangoon following the course of the war in South East Asia. Following Netaji's departure to South East Asia, the German operations were continued by A.C.N. Nambiar, the head of the Indian Legion (in Germany) and later Ambassador of the Arzi Hukumate Azad Hind in Germany.

The radio broadcast weekly news bulletins in English, Hindi, Tamil, Bengali, Marathi , Punjabi, Pashtu, and Urdu only as these were the languages of potential volunteers for the Indian Legion in Germany and the Indian National Army in southeast Asia. The majority of the volunteers spoke these Indian languages only.

Azad Hind Radio aimed to counter the broadcasts of Allied radio stations. Netaji had on the Azad Hind Radio referred the British Broadcasting Corporation as the Bluff and Bluster Corporation and the All India Radio as the Anti Indian Radio.
