The Gradual Formation of India’s First Israel Policy (1922–1947)
The question of Palestine had been a concern for Indian leaders long before independence in August 1947 and the proclamation of the state of Israel in May 1948. Chapter 1 details and traces the process leading to the definition of India’s initial policy towards Israel in 1947. At the time, the Indian national movement, represented by the INC, decided to oppose the partition of Palestine and the creation of the state of Israel. As the INC eventually formed the government of independent India, this became India’s official position in the immediate post-independence years. This initial debate and its outcome remained an important institutional and ideational precedent for all of the Prime Ministers of India that followed Nehru.
