      False

    The Khilafat movement did not bring Hindu-Muslim communities to a conflict. In fact, it was a political movement in India during the 1920s that aimed to unite Muslims in support of the Caliphate in Turkey. The movement was led by Indian Muslims, with support from Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian National Congress. While the movement did create a sense of solidarity among Muslims, it did not lead to a conflict between Hindus and Muslims.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    According to the Nehru report, Muslim seats in Punjab and Bengal were not reserved. Instead, they were allocated seats based on the population in the Hindu majority provinces.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Quaid-e-Azam did not succeed in getting amendments in the Nehru Report during the All Parties Conference held in Calcutta. In fact, Quaid-e-Azam and the Muslim League rejected the Nehru Report as it did not adequately address the concerns and demands of the Muslim community in India. Quaid-e-Azam went on to present the Fourteen Points as an alternative proposal to safeguard the rights and interests of Muslims in India.

    Correct Answer
    D. Sind and Bombay merged to be made a separate province.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Sind and Bombay merged to be made a separate province. This is not part of the 14 points presented by Quaid-e-Azam. The 14 points focused on issues such as representation of Muslims in the legislature, constitutional reforms in certain regions, and Muslim representation in government jobs. However, the merging of Sind and Bombay into a separate province was not one of the points presented by Quaid-e-Azam.

    Simon commission presented its report in 1930 after which some of the Indian political parties boycotted it.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the Simon Commission presented its report in 1930, and it was met with widespread protests and boycotts by Indian political parties. The Indian National Congress, in particular, boycotted the commission as it did not include any Indian members. The boycott was a significant event in the Indian independence movement and demonstrated the growing demand for self-governance and representation in the decision-making process.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Government of India Act 1935 failed to address the concerns and demands of the Muslim community. It did not provide adequate safeguards for their political representation and protection of their rights. The Act maintained the dominance of the Hindu majority and did not adequately address the fears and aspirations of the Muslim minority. This failure to address the vital issues of the Muslims ultimately led to their dissatisfaction and the demand for a separate homeland, culminating in the eventual creation of Pakistan.
