Difficulty: Medium

Cripps Mission 1942:

      The British Government sent a Mission to the Sub-continent in 1942 headed by Sir Stafford Cripps.

Scope of the Mission:

       It tried to unite all the political parties on some points but it failed in its attempt. Cripps did not declare any party responsible for that failure of the Mission, rather he accepted himself the failure. The Muslims had made a demand for Pakistan through Pakistan Resolution. The leaders of the Congress were launching movements against the Government because anticipating the defeat of the British in World War II (1939-1945), it had decided that Japanese would now decide the future of the Sub-continent.
