A quick skim of this article suggests that it's written very much with a nationalist bias, as a narrative of the rise of the Indian nation against a foreign oppressor. The conclusion, for instance, claims that Gandhi's satyagraha technique was responsible for ousting the British - this is very simplistic and fails to consider wider pressures on the British, and especially the economic impact of the Second World War on the Raj. It also suggests, wrongly, that the Independence achieved was the Independence that Gandhi would have wanted to see. Also, I believe that Non-Cooperation was against the 1919 Government of India Act, not the 1918 Rowlatt Act - this prompted a separate satyagraha, the 'Rowlatt Satyagraha', in 1919. I'll check it all over properly when I have time, if nobody gets round to it before me. 15:04, 18 May 2006 (UTC) DH


The article states:

"Millions of India's Muslims were also antagonized by the Government's support of Mustafa Kemal of Turkey, who had overthrown the Sultan of Turkey, considered the Caliph of Islam. Muslim leaders formed the Khilafat committee to protest the actions and find a way to effectively stop the British authorities from neglecting their concerns."

I'm sorry, but this is wrong. The Khilafat moment lasted from 1921 to 1924 until Mustafa Kemal "Atatürk" abolished the sultanate. Mustafa Kemal was waging a war to prevent Anatolia (present-day Turkey) from being divided between Italy, France, the UK, and Greece, and he was successful. The Muslims of India did not know that Mustafa Kemal wanted to create a Western-style republic. They only say him win against the European powers and thought that he would be the hero who would raise the caliph and Islamic civilization to its former glory. When he succeeded in reconquering Turkey and abolished the caliphate in 1924, the Muslims of India were shocked: Their hero had done what they thought he would be fighting against! So the Khilafat movement dissolved after 1924. Curryfranke (talk) 16:18, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
