apologies for the delay but, thanks to an incognito benefactor (not a BK), we know have a PDF copy of the book, "Is this Justice?" written in the name of Om Radhe. Full title;
"Is this Justice? Being an account of the founding of the Om Mandli & the Om Nivas and their suppression by application of the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1908" by Om Radhe, 1939;

Don't allow this to put anyone off reading this, there is plenty of good material even for BK followers, but one of the more salient points in this book is that the given age of Lekhraj Kripalani/Kirpalani contradicts "God's" the predictions. "God" says even in the Murlis the BKWSU published that he "enters when the Chariot is 60 years old".
On page 171, it is written that Lekhraj Khubchand Kripalani was 54 in 1938.
This has been discussed elsewhere, including an intermediatory excerpt from a BK Jagdish Chander book, where the BKWSU leadership are attempting to fudge the issue by saying he was "55 to 60" when "God" entered him. The BKWSU has, of course, resolved this by faking, or lying, Lekhraj Kirpalani's age on their websites or in their publications and changing his date of birth.
I find this remarkable. There are no two ways about it.
- Either "God" and the Murli is wrong.
Or Lekhraj Kirpalani was not the Chariot.
(Or, of course, it is not God at all but just some trickster spook - albeit however powerful - messing about with peoples' mind ...)
There are other interesting elements, Numbered by the PDF's pages, on;
- page 125 ... Narain Shewakram is mentioned as the secretary to the Om Mandli Bhaibund Committee. The Anti-Party in BK terms.
p 168 ... Hakibhai Kismatrai, the sister of Lekhraj Kripalani is mentioned who I understand the PBKs believe is "Gita Mata", the wife of Shewkram, and the very first and very temporary Chariot/medium. I do not know this but merely report it as told.
The original book, which is complete and in good condition, has been photocopied and then scanned. After scanning it has been hand-edited to remove the black borders. This accounts for the slightly irregular page sizes. There is one missing page only, to my knowledge, and this was a blank page in the original book. To the sweet children in the BKWSU ... no it has not been in any other way changed or edited. I also see there is one page still needing its border removed and so if you want a "best" version to print out, wait until tomorrow and I will correct it.
I did not want to disclose this before, because I was afraid that some zealot BK would go in and remove, deface or apply pressure on the institution that holds them to remove them - as they do with other media - but the original copies of these books, documents, letters and others are available in the archive of 'The India Office'. That is to say, the official archives of the government of the British Empire in India. However, I have also discovered that there is also other material elsewhere.
And I am pretty damned sure that the BKWSU thought that they had got off Scot free with their historical revisionism and that these would never come back to;
- a) haunt them and,
b) clearly prove what a bunch of charlatans the leadership is
c) the extent to which they will go to hide the truth.
I do have more to say about it. I am very interested to read others' comments ... AND ESPECIALLY ... to read any supporting evidence that others can provide. I note that leading BKs and BK supporters in the West are aware of these and have covered them up. This material's existence has never been made public to my knowledge, and certainly not in my, or my associates' time in the BKWSU.
In general, I think that you get a good 'smell' of the BKWSU that pervades to this day. I will qualify that later.
