Abstract

In 1914, over 300 passengers from India onboard the Komagata Maru were refused landing in Canada. After a standoff, the ship returned to India, where many of the passengers were imprisoned — and some even killed — by British Raj forces. These forces viewed the passengers as dangerous political agitators seeking the independence of India from British rule.
