From the Archives (Nov. 4, 1919): The Khaliphate Question.


Lucknow, November 3. — The following cable has been sent by the All-India Moslem League, Lucknow, to the Premier, Secretary of State for India and the Islamia Bureau, London:-- The Council of the All-India Moslem League views with alarm and indignation the attitude of the Premier towards the Turkish question as disclosed by his Sheffield speech which foreshadows anti-Turkish and anti Moslem nature of settlement he seems inclined to favour at the Peace Conference ignorant of universal Moslem protests made in this behalf and even violating the pledge given by himself on behalf of the British Government, Empire and nation to the Moslem world during the war. The Council deplores that the Prime Minister of England which has the largest number of Mussalmans amongst its subjects should show such deliberate disregard of universal Moslem opinion regarding what is to Mussalmans a religious question.
