As a part of their GCSE studies students will be taught about the British Empire. One aspect they will look at is how Britain dealt with the issue of Indian independence.
The first half of the Twentieth Century saw a rise in the demands for Indian independence. Britain dealt with these demands by gradually handing over powers from British to Indian officials, although Indian nationalists wanted a much faster pace of change. The existence of several different ethnic and religious communities in India was also a major complication.
