Abstract
  • This thesis analyzes the transition of Muhammad Barkatullah, a Muslim-Indian living under British colonial rule, from intellectual to anti-British revolutionary. The thesis assumes that this transition was not inevitable and seeks to explain when, why, and how Barkatullah became radicalized and turned to violent, revolutionary means in order to achieve independence from British rule, and away from demanding justice and equality within an imperial framework. To do this, the focus of the thesis is on the early period of his career leading up to the beginning of WWI. It examines his movements, intellectual production, and connections with various networks in the context of of major global events in order to illuminate his journey to revolutionary anti-colonialism.
