One curious aspect of the movement to restore the caliphate, back in the 1920s, was its support for a time by Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian National Congress. That was because the movement had elicited strong support from Indian Muslims. For Gandhi, and his associates, the anti-British tones of the movement had some appeal, and for a while they believed that by lending their support to that movement, they could win the support of Indian Muslims for their own independence movement.
