Historically, the liberation of
British India in 1947 has been primarily credited
to the All-India Muslim League and the Indian National Congress, who were
involved in the negotiations for partition with the British Government. By
contrast, this article follows the events leading up to the freedom of British India as seen through the lens of Allama Mashraqi
and his Khaksar Movement. It examines the grassroots efforts of Mashraqi and
the Khaksars to mobilize the Indian nation towards freedom as well as the
Government’s attempts to crush the Movement. Ultimately, the article concludes
that the true liberation of British India was
not merely the result of negotiations or “drawing room politics,” but rather an
outcome of the continued resistance of the Khaksars and other political parties.
