British Inquisition in India

A pamphlet published by the Friends of Freedom for India featuring Ghadar activist Surendra Karr's essay "British Inquisition in India" (originally published in the June 28, 1919 issue of the Nation). Karr criticizes the Rowlatt Bills, and methodically takes apart its two main features: an amendment of the Indian Penal Code and the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1898, and provisions for emergency powers for the Government. The front of the pamphlet contains a quotation from Rabindranath Tagore.
