Asit Krishna Mukherji (1898-March 21, 1977) was a Bengali with National Socialist convictions who published pro-Axis journals. He married Savitri Devi in 1940 in order to protect her from deportation or internment.
Mukherji attended the University of London taking a doctorate in history. After graduating, he traveled in the Soviet Union. Unimpressed with Marxist materialism, he turned down several offers to work for communist newspapers back in India. He began, instead, to publish The New Mercury in collaboration with Sri Vinaya Datta. Openly proclaiming its support for Nazi Germany and Aryan racism, it expressed admiration for the race laws and Hellenic ideals. Mukherji recognised parallels between the Third Reich and Hindu nationalism: common use of the swastika on the Nazi and pan-Hindu flag; the similarity of the Hitler Youth and K.B. Hedgewar's Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh boys; the challenging of British authority.
After the war he made his living as an astrologer and had Savitri's books printed.
