This is the fourth and last volume of our project, Gandhi and the Punjab. The present volume covers the last phase of Gandhi’s struggle for the Independence of the country and Hindu-Muslim unity. It studies the events with a view to assessing the role that Punjab played during this crucial period and Indian history in the context of Muslim league’s demand for partition of the country.
This study, therefore, may be helpful in seeking answers to two fundamental questions: (i) Was Pakistan inevitable? (ii) Why did Gandhi fail to prevent partition?
The preceding volumes include From Civil Disobedience to Quit India (1932-1942), Gandhi-an experiment with communal politics (1922-1932) and Gandhi and the Punjab (1919-1922).
