TITLE

The American Press and the Pakistan Movement

ABSTRACT

The general American apathy and lack of interest in South Asian affairs — and more specifically the inability to understand Muslim aspirations — left a great vacuum in information. The meagre size and scattered nature of the South Asian community in North America as well as its heterogeneous composition, left much to be accomplished. Since they did not have American citizenship they led a precarious existence, which had been exacerbated by the effects of Ghadr activism. Wisely, therefore, the community avoided confrontation with the North American authorities. When based in New York, Lajpat Rai had capably espoused the South Asian political cause under the auspices of the India League of America. His departure for the subcontinent and engagement in his monumental work, Unhappy India, followed by his anti-Simon Commission protest that eventually resulted in his death, placed the League and its organ, Young India, in an uncertain position. In the 1940s, while the South Asians in America were trying to launch the nationalist cause from various platforms, their major preoccupation was still the right to US citizenship. Thus, they operated on a double-track plan.
