During the Indian Freedom Struggle, why did Rowlatt Act arouse popular indignation? a) t curtailed the freedom of religion b) It suppressed the Indian traditional education c) It authorized the government to imprison people without trial d) It curbed the trade union activities
Answer (C) The Rowlatt Act was a law passed by the British in colonial India in March 1919, indefinitely extending "emergency measures" (of the Defence of India Regulations Act) enacted during the First World War in order to control public unrest and root out conspiracy. Passed on the recommendations of the Rowlatt commission, named for its president British judge Sir Sidney Rowlatt, this act effectively authorized the government to imprison for a maximum period of two years, without trial, any person suspected of terrorism living in the Raj. The Rowlatt Act gave British imperial authorities power to deal with revolutionary activities."
With reference to Simon Commission's recommendations, which one of the following statements is correct? a) It recommended the replacement of diarchy with responsible government in the provinces b) It proposed the setting up of inter-provincial council under the Home Department c) It suggested the abolition of bicameral legislature at the Centre d) It recommended the creation of Indian Police Service with a provision for increased pay and allowances for British recruits as compared to Indian recruits
Answer (A) "The Commission published its 17-volume report in 1930. It proposed the abolition of dyarchy and the establishment of representative government in the provinces It also recommended that separate communal electorates be retained, but only until tensions between Hindus and Muslims had died down. Noting that educated Indians opposed the Commission and also that communal tensions had increased instead of decreased, the British government opted for another method of dealing with the constitutional issues of India. Before the publication of the report, the British government stated that Indian opinion would henceforth be taken into account, and that the natural outcome of the constitutional process would be dominion status for India. The outcome of the Simon Commission was the Government of India Act 1935, which established representative government at the provincial level in India and is the basis of many parts of the Indian Constitution. In 1937 the first elections were held in the Provinces, resulting in Congress Governments being returned in almost all Provinces. In September 1928, Mr. Motilal Nehru presented his Nehru Report to counter British charges that Indians could not find a constitutional consensus among themselves, it advocated that India be given dominion status of complete internal self- government."
Four resolutions were passed at the famous Calcutta session of Indian National Congress in 1906. The question of either retention OR of rejection of these four resolutions became the cause of a split in Congress at the next Congress session held in Surat in 1907. Which one of the following was not one of those resolutions? a) Annulment of partition of Bengal b) Boycot c) National education d) Swadeshi
Answer (A) "In December 1906, at the Calcutta Congress Session, the Congress under the leadership of Dadabhai naoroji adopted swaraj as the goal of the Indian people. In his presedential address, Naoroji declared that the goal of the INC was "Self- government or Swaraj like that of United Kingdom". The session passed the resolution on boycott, swadeshi and national education."
