Kanpur Bolshevik Conspiracy Case 1924

Kanpur Conspiracy Case was also against the newbie communists which were abhorred by the British Government. Some newly turned communists named M N Roy, Muzaffar Ahamed, S A Dange, Shaukat Usmani, Nalini Gupta, Singaravelu Chettiar, Ghulam Hussain were caught by the Government and were trailed for conspiring against the Government. The Charge on them was

“to deprive the King Emperor of his sovereignty of British India, by complete separation of India from imperialistic Britain by a violent revolution.”

  • But this case, brought the communists in the lime light. The newspapers covered the matter exhaustively and this was for the first time the people of India could know the communist doctrine in details.
  • So, this case was responsible for introduction of Communism to the Indian Public.

    In this case, M N Roy was charged in absentia, so he was not arrested. Ghulam Hussain turned a British informer and was pardoned. Rest all people were arrested and sent to jail for 4 years.

    Newbie communists? Is that the accurate academic terminology?

    And newly turned communists? M.N.Roy? Newly turned communist? M. N. Roy had established the Mexican Communist Party (the first Communist party outside Russia) in 1917 and was a delegate to the Communist International in 1920, where he was invited by Vladimir Lenin himself.

    By the time of 1924, Roy had met international revolutionaries including Lenin, Bordin, Sun Yat-Sen.
