(p.268) 24 Crisis in the Raj

B. R. Nanda

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the political storm unleashed by the arrest of Lajpat Rai, the most prominent Congress leader of the Punjab, on 9 May 1907, and his deportation, without a trial, to Burma. The weeks which followed this drastic step were among the most tense and the most strenuous of Gokhale’s life. He had to batter against the wall of official prejudice; his own aims and motives were impugned by the authorities in Simla and London, who were led to believe that the Punjab was riddled with sedition and a second mutiny was imminent.

Keywords:   Gopal Krishna Gokhale, arrest of Lajpat Rai, deportation to Burma, mutiny, Simla, London
