Communalism Communalism Presentation Transcript

  • The communal issue was far from being a new element in Indian politics in 1945. Some authorities have looked on the failure of Congress to form coalition ministries in 1937. Others go back to 1928, when the all parties’ conference rejected separate electorates.
  • Some see Jinnah’s departure from the Congress in 1921 as the point of no return; others go back to the birth of Muslim League in 1906. But this problem goes much further.
  • A. SOCIAL CAUSES: The Hindus already established them in government services, as also in key positions in trade, industry and finance. They needed the support of the masses of their community in their struggle with the Hindu rivals for jobs.
  • B. ECONOMIC CAUSES: Due to lack of modern industrial development, unemployment was an acute problem in India. Many thought of such short- sighted remedies as communal and religious and later caste and provincial reservations in an attempt to get a larger share of the existing limited employment opportunities.
  • C. POLITICAL CAUSES: Modern political consciousness was late in developing among the Muslims. Denied British patronage, and relatively uninterested in British education, they slipped ever deeper into political and economic stagnation.
