Abstract

The aim of this article is to describe the role of Muslims in Khilafat movements in Madras Presidency from 1919 to 1922. The word 'Khilafat' means Caliphate. Historically, the Caliph was the successor to the Prophet Mohammed. In theory, the Caliph was both the spiritual and temporal ruler of the Muslims all over the world. Naturally Indian Muslims has also recognized the Caliph as their religious head. But when Turkey, the seat of the Caliph, entered into the First World War on the side of Germany against Britain the Indian Muslims were in dilemma. They had to stand between the Caliph and the British Government. They decided to defend their religious head. The British with a view to grab support of the Indian Muslims assured that Turkey would be treated sympathetically, that nothing would be done against the Muslim holy places in Asia Minor and that the Turkish Empire would not be dismembered. The Indian Muslims, therefore extended their loyal cooperation to the British Government by enlisting Muslims in strength for service in the army. But when the war came to a close the Turkish Sultan was deprived of all real authority and his Empire was disintegrated. The Indian Muslim thought that this was a clear violation of the solemn promise given to them by the British Government. To protest against this the Indian Muslims launched a mass movement.

Key Words
