  3. CWC Meeting at Wardha- (September 10-14, 1939): Different opinions were voiced on the question of Indian support to British war efforts Gandhi advocated an unconditional support to the Allied powers as he made a clear distinction between the democratic states of Western Europe and the totalitarian Nazis Subhash Bose and the socialists argued that the war was an imperialist one since both sides were fighting for gaining or defending colonial territories Therefore, the question of supporting either of the two sides did not arise. Instead, advantage should be taken of the situation to wrest freedom by immediately starting a civil disobedience movement Nehru made a sharp distinction between democracy and Fascism. He believed that justice was on the side of Britain, France and Poland, but he was also convinced that Britain and France were imperialist powers, and that the war was the result of the inner contradictions of capitalism maturing since the end of World War l. He, therefore, advocated no Indian participation till India itself was free. However, at the, same time, no advantage was to be taken of Britain's difficulty by starting an immediate struggle

  4. Government's Response The Government's response was entirely negative. Linlithgow, in his statement (October 17, 1939), tried to use the Muslim League and the princes against the Congress. The Government refused to define British war aims beyond stating that Britain was resisting aggression; March 23rd 1940 Pakistan Resolution-Lahore (March 1940) The Muslim League passed a resolution calling for "grouping of geographically contiguous areas where Muslims are in majority (NorthWest, East) into independent states in which constituent units shall be autonomous and sovereign and adequate safeguards to Muslims where they are in minority". Lahore (Pakistan) Resolution Day

  5. August Offer Hitler's astounding success and the fall of Belgium, Holland and France put England in a conciliatory mood. To get Indian cooperation in the war effort, the viceroy announced the August Offer (August 1940) which proposed Dominion status as the objective for India Expansion of viceroy's executive council Setting up of a constituent assembly after the war. Indians would decide the constitution according to their social, economic and political conceptions, subject to fulfilment of the obligation of the Government regarding defence, minority rights, treaties with states, all India services No future constitution to be adopted without the consent of minorities. The Congress rejected the August Offer. Nehru said, "Dominion status concept is dead as a door nail." Gandhi said that the declaration had widened the gulf between the nationalists and the British rulers The Muslim League welcomed the veto assurance given to the League, and reiterated its position that partition was the only solution to the deadlock
