Japanese Occupation

In July 1942, Sukarno accepted Japan's offer to hold a public campaign and form a government that can provide answers to the needs of the Japanese military. Sukarno, Mohammad Hatta, and the Master of Muslim gain respect from the Japanese Emperor in 1943. However, experience of the Japanese occupation of Indonesia varied considerably, depending on where one lives and social status of that person. For those who live in areas that are considered important in warfare, they suffered torture, involved sexual slavery, arbitrary detention and execution, and other war crimes. The Dutch and Indonesian-Dutch mix is the target of the Japanese occupation.

In March 1945 the Japanese formed Business Investigation Agency Preparation of Indonesian Independence (BPUPKI). At its first meeting in May, Soepomo spoke of national integration and against personal individualism; while Muhammad Yamin suggested that the new nation should at once claim to Sarawak, Sabah, Malaya, Portuguese Timor, and the whole area of the Netherlands East Indies before the war.

On August 9, 1945 Sukarno, Hatta and Radjiman Wediodiningrat were flown to Vietnam to meet Marshal Terauchi. They were told that Japanese troops were to destruction but the Japanese want the independence of Indonesia on August 24.
