The First World War, Khilafat and Non-Cooperation

A new economic and political situation was created by the war.

  • The prices of all the commodities went up.

  • Common people faced extreme hardship.

  • Villages were called upon to supply soldiers.

  • Forced recruitment in rural areas caused widespread anger.

During these times crops also failed and caused a lot of shortage of food. This was accompanied by an influenza epidemic. 12 to 13 million people perished as a result of famines and the epidemic, according to the census of 1921. The major thought of the people was that after the wars they will have a peaceful life. But that did not happen. At this stage a new mode of struggle was suggested by a new leader.
