John Brazier Paid Tribute to Ganapathy

In Tim Harper and Christopher Bayly 's Forgotten War: The End of Britain's Asian Empire, it is stated on the notes of Ganapathy's execution on the 4th May 1949,

The World Federation of Trade Union called it "murder". The British were shocked when the key note speaker at a conference of local moderate trade unionist, orchestrated by the trade union adviser, John Brazier, paid tribute to Ganapathy:

"His sincere services to the workers for a long time cannot be forgotten. In appreciation of these service it is, but right to express our sympathy to him in his dark days."
