BUILDING THE MODERN STATE: PUBLIC OPINION AND
World War II was fatal to the European colonial empires.
European states? populations were too devastated to
consider fighting to keep Asia and Africa subjugated. Both
the United States and the Soviet Union were hostile to
continuation of European colonies. A reluctant Britain, in
return for American support, in 1941 agreed to the Atlantic
Charter, a pact recognizing the right of people to choose
their own government.
The Indian National Congress agreed to support the British
war effort in return for a significant share of power in India
and a postwar commitment to independence. The British
rejected the offer. Negotiations failed to lessen increasing
tensions. Mass civil disobedience campaigns, such as the
Quit India movement, began during 1942. Gandhi and other
leaders were imprisoned. The Muslim League, led by
Muhammad Ali Jinnah, gained favor by supporting the
British. The war caused hardship in India through inflation
and famine. When a Labour government came to power in
Britain in 1945, independence in the near future was
conceded. The divided Indians were unable to work out a
compromise between Hindu desires for one nation under
majority rule and Muslim wishes for a separate state. When
communal rioting spread, the British agreed to the creation
of two independent nations, India and Pakistan, in 1947.
