Jinnah felt, even as Tagore that Gandhi's doctrine of non-cooperation at best one of negation and despair and would not be able to reach the vital condition of Swaraj. Jinnah tried hard for Hindu-Muslim unity . One such effort was the formulation of of the Delhi Muslim Proposal in March, 1927.
Participants of the Conference held in Delhi, 1927 :
Delhi Muslim Proposal, 1927 :
Pandit Motilal Nehru:The Govt. of India Act 1919 was essentially transitional in character. Under section 84 of the said act, a statutory commission was to be appointedat the end of ten years to determine the nextstage in the reaalization of the self rule in India. Accordingly Simon Commission was sent to the Sub-continent under the command of Sir John Simon.All members of the commission were British.This was regarded as highly insulting to the Indians and immedtate protest was raised from all the important political parties. When the Simon Commission arrived, the local masses welcomed it by slogans "go back Simon". All the major political parties except the shafi League of Punjab, Boycotted the Simon Commision.Simon Commission was withdrawn and they asked to frame constitution by the local people. But after sitting about 100 conferences no results were obtained.
