Freedom struggles of more than tousands countries were accelerated and intensified after the WWI, a country known as Socialist Russia came out of the clutches of imperialism, a new avenue was opened for organising freedom struggle of different countriesi.e., socialist way of reconstruction after independence. But WWI could not satisfy the two blocks of the WWI and as a result WWII happend for redistribution of the world market.
The Indian National Congress, led by M.k.Gandhi, Sarder Patel, Maulana Azad etc, took a strong stance against fascism and Nazism. Gandhi in an open letter to Adolf Hitler, touted tolerance and viewed Nazism as asource of violence.Several other Indian leaders and politicians expressed concerns over the rise of ascism and Nazism and supported the British cause.
In 1939, the British Viceroy, Lord linlithgow declared India's entry into the war without consulting prominent Indian Congress leaders who were just elected in previous elections.
