Nor can one overlook the fact that this document has no mention of a popular uprising or revolution, nothing beyond a reference to “emergencies, that is the general War of Independence”. Naturally, that was not a casual omission. The major banking, as already stated, was on an invasion by a foreign army. In fact, it is for that reason that point “c” of the second paragraph called for Indian soldiers to be dissuaded from fighting against any foreign Power that would assume the mission of liberating India by force of arms.

12. 44 revolutionaries. Thanks to Professor Barakatullah and his outstanding propaganda work in Soviet Russia, we have come into possession of substantive material permitting a closer insight into the. matter at issue. Barakatullah clearly realised that the success or defeat of the Soviet system in the Civil War was fundamental to the success or defeat of many peoples of the East, includ­ ing the peoples of India, in battle for their national libera­ tion. Therefore, as a true revolutionary, he offered his ser­ vices to the Soviet Government to conduct propaganda, both in print and by word, among the Muslim population of the RSFSR as well as among the former Turkish POWs who were staying on Soviet territory.

The authors wrote: 1 “A Short Account o£ the History of the Indian Revolutionary Committee”. (See: ORCSA, s. 5402, r. 1, f. 486, pp. ) m “The Provisional Government expects to have the same relations with Soviet Russia as Denikin’s and Kol­ chak’s Governments have with the Entente, that is to say, Provisional Government hopes that Soviet Russia will help it carry on War against the English in India” . 1 The Kabul revolutionaries must have had the following line of reasoning. Since the Soviet Government had not only proclaimed the right of nations to self-determination, but was lending actual assistance to oppressed peoples in their struggle for freedom and independence, one could, apparently, do without a popular revolution and have So­ viet Russia bear the brunt of military expulsion of the Eng­ lish from India.
