In India, the interwar years were to be a time of great turbulence. A brief Afghan war broke out in 1919. The Indian nationalist movement had been fractured in various ways from the years before the First World War. The Indian National Congress, founded as far back as 1885, had IMPERIALISM become divided into militant and constitutional wings. The war had invoked a certain amount of “loyalty” and the man who was to become the leading nationalist symbol, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, soon known as the Mahatma, even served in an ambulance corps.
Wilson was convinced, now that “the West” had been “Won,” a substitute had to be found for the frontier. ” So it was not Wilson and the Americans who were naïve at Paris in 1919 but the Europeans, who failed to consider the implications of the American occupation of Cuba and the Philippines, or Wilsonian “intervention” in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti. ” And his formula of self-determination for nations “struggling to be free” would have dismantled all European pretensions to empires that could compete with the American.
Gandhi was nonetheless able to secure a degree of control over the nationalist movement through what was effectively a “third way”: passive resistance, combined with constitutional talks. But another major faction was to develop its power during this period. This was the Muslim League. The original Congress had set out to bring Hindu and Muslim together, but the Muslim League was founded as a separatist Islamic movement in 1905. In 1940, under the leadership of a westernized and secular lawyer, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, it demanded a separate Muslim state.
