gradually became the first princely state to come under British paramountcy signing a subsidiary alliance agreement. After the Partition of India, Hyderabad

History[edit] Early history[edit] Hyderabad
Hyderabad
State was founded by Mir Qamar-ud-din Khan who was the governor of Deccan under the Mughals from 1713 to 1721. In 1724, he once again resumed rule under the title of Asaf Jah. His other title Nizam ul-Mulk (Order of the Realm), became the title of his position "Nizam of Hyderabad". By the end of his rule, the Nizam had become independent from the Mughals, and had founded the Asaf Jahi dynasty.[10] Following the decline of the Mughal power, the region of Deccan saw the rise of Maratha Empire. The Nizam himself saw many invasions by the Marathas in the 1720s, which resulted in the Nizam paying a regular tax (Chauth) to the Marathas. The major battles fought between the Marathas and the Nizam include Palkhed, Rakshasbhuvan, and Kharda, in all of which the Nizam lost.[11][12] Following the conquest of Deccan by Bajirao I
Bajirao I
and the imposition of chauth by him, Nizam remained a tributary of the Marathas for all intent and purposes.[13] From 1778, a British resident and soldiers were installed in his dominions. In 1795, the Nizam lost some of his own territories to the Marathas. The territorial gains of the Nizam from Mysore as an ally of the British were ceded to the British to meet the cost of maintaining the British soldiers.[10] British suzerainty[edit] See also: Northern Circars

was a 212,000 km² (82,000 square mile) region in the Deccan, ruled by the head of the Asif Jahi dynasty, who had the title of Nizam and on whom was bestowed the style of "His Exalted Highness" by the British. The last Nizam, Osman Ali Khan, was one of the world's richest men in the 1930s.[14] Hyderabad's Muslim nizams ruled over a predominantly Hindu population.[10] In 1798, Nizam ʿĀlī Khan (Nizam Ali Khan Nizam-ul-Mulk (Asaf Jah II)) was forced to enter into an agreement that put Hyderabad

under British protection. He was the first Indian prince to sign such an agreement. Consequently, Hyderabad

was the senior-most (23-gun) salute state during the period of British India. The Crown retained the right to intervene in case of misrule.[10] Hyderabad
Hyderabad
under Nizam Ali Khan(Asif Jah II) was a British ally in the second and third Maratha Wars (1803–05, 1817–19), and remained loyal to the British during the Indian Rebellion of 1857 (1857–58).[10] The Nizam Mīr Us̄mān ʿĀlī (Ruled 1911–48) was given British titles. Hyderabad

was considered backward, but peaceful, during this time.[10] After Indian Independence (1947–48)[edit] Main article: Operation Polo In 1947 India

gained independence and Pakistan

came into existence; the British left the local rulers of the princely states the choice of whether to join one or the other, or to remain independent. On 11 June 1947, the Nizam issued a declaration to the effect that he had decided not to participate in the Constituent Assembly of either Pakistan

or India. India

insisted that the great majority of residents wanted to join India.[15] The Nizam was in a weak position as his army numbered only 24,000 men, of whom only some 6,000 were fully trained and equipped.[16] On 21 August 1948, the Secretary-General of the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
Department of External Affairs requested the President of the United Nations's Security Council, under Article 35(2) of the United Nations Charter, to consider the "grave dispute, which, unless settled in accordance with international law and justice, is likely to endanger the maintenance of international peace and security."[17][non-primary source needed] On 4 September the Prime Minister of Hyderabad

Department of External Affairs in a cablegram informed the United Nations Security Council that Hyderabad was being invaded by Indian forces and that hostilities had broken out. The Security Council took notice of it on 16 September in Paris. The representative of Hyderabad

On 22 February 1937 a cover story by TIME
TIME
called Osman Ali Khan, Asif Jah VII the wealthiest man in the world

Wilfred Cantwell Smith states that Hyderabad
Hyderabad
was an area where the political and social structure from medieval Muslim rule had been preserved more or less intact into the modern times.[26] At the head of the social order was the Nizam, who owned 5 million acres (10% of the land area) of the state, earning him Rs. 25 million a year. Another Rs. 5 million was granted to him from the state treasury. He was reputed to be the wealthiest man in the world.[27] He was supported by an aristocracy of 1,100 feudal lords who owned a further 30% of the state's land, with some 4 million tenant farmers. The state also owned 50% or more of the capital in all the major enterprises, allowing the Nizam to earn further profits and control their affairs. All of these were almost 100% Muslim.[28] Next in the social structure were the administrative and official class, comprising about 1,500 officials, who were also chiefly Muslim. A number of them were recruited from outside the state. The lower level government employees were also predominantly Muslim. Effectively, the Muslims of the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
represented an 'upper caste' of the social structure. They dominated the state's extensive Hindu population, who resented their dominance.[29] All power was vested in the Nizam. He ruled with the help of an Executive Council or Cabinet, established in 1893, whose members he was free to appoint and dismiss. The Prime Minister was generally a Muslim, often from outside the state. There was also an Assembly, whose role was mostly advisory. More than half its members were appointed by the Nizam and the rest elected from a carefully limited franchise. There were representatives of Hindus, Parsis, Christians and Depressed Classes in the Assembly. Their influence was however limited due to their small numbers.[30][31] The state government also had a large number of outsiders (called non-mulkis) — 46,800 of them in 1933, including all the members of the Nizam's Executive Council. Hindus and Muslims united in protesting against the practice which robbed the locals of government employment. The movement however fizzled out after the Hindu members raised the issue of 'responsible government', which was of no interest to the Muslim members and led to their resignation.[32] Political movements[edit] Up to 1920, there was no political organisation of any kind in Hyderabad. In that year, following British pressure, the Nizam issued a firman appointing a special officer to investigate constitutional reforms. It was welcomed enthusiastically by a section of the populace, who formed the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
State Reforms Association. However, the Nizam and the Special
Special
Officer ignored all their demands for consultation. Meanwhile, the Nizam banned the Khilafat movement
Khilafat movement
in the State as well as all political meetings and the entry of "political outsiders." Nevertheless, some political activity did take place and witnessed co-operation between Hindus and Muslims. The abolition of the Sultanate in Turkey and Gandhi's suspension of the Non-co-operation movement in British India
India
ended this period of co-operation.[31] An organisation called Andhra Jana Sangham (later renamed Andhra Mahasabha) was formed in November 1921, and focused on educating the masses of Telangana
Telangana
in political awareness. With leading members such as Madapati Hanumantha Rao, Burgula Ramakrishna Rao and M. Narsing Rao, its activities included urging merchants to resist offering freebies to government officials and encouraging labourers to resist the system of begar (free labour requested at the behest of state). Alarmed by its activities, the Nizam passed a powerful gagging order in 1929, requiring all public meetings to obtain prior permission. But the organisation persisted by mobilising on social issues such as the protection of ryots, women's rights, abolition of the devadasi system and purdah, uplifting of Dalits etc. It turned to politics again in 1937, passing a resolution calling for responsible government. Soon afterwards, it split along the moderate–extremist lines. The Andhra Mahasabha's move towards politics also inspired similar movements in Marathwada
Marathwada
and Karnataka
Karnataka
in 1937, giving rise to the Maharashtra Parishad and Karnataka
Karnataka
Parishad respectively.[31] The Arya Samaj, a pan-Indian Hindu reformist movement that engaged in a forceful religious conversion programme, established itself in the state in the 1890s, first in the Bhir and Bidar districts. By 1923, it opened a branch in the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
city. Its mass conversion programme in 1924 gave rise to tensions, and the first clashes occurred between Hindus and Muslims.[31] The Arya Samaj
Arya Samaj
was allied to the Hindu Mahasabha, another pan-Indian Hindu communal organisation, which also had branches in the state. The anti-Muslim sentiments represented by the two organisations was particularly strong in Marathwada.[33] In 1927, the first Muslim political organisation, Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (Council for the Unity of Muslims, Ittehad for short) was formed. Its political activity was meagre during the initial decade other than stating the objectives of uniting the Muslims and expressing loyalty to the ruler. However, it functioned as a 'watchdog' of Muslim interests and defended the privileged position of Muslims in the government and administration.[31] 1938 Satyagraha[edit] 1937 was a watershed year in the Indian independence movement. The Government of India
India
Act, 1935 introduced major constitutional reforms, with a loose federal structure for India
India
and provincial autonomy. In the provincial elections of February 1937, the Indian National Congress emerged with clear majority in most provinces of British India
India
and formed provincial governments. On the other hand, there was no move towards constitutional reforms in the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
state despite the initial announcement in 1920. The Andhra Mahasabha passed a resolution in favour of responsible government and the parallel organisations of Maharastrha Parishad and Karnataka
Karnataka
Parishad were formed in their respective regions. The Nizam appointed a fresh Constitutional Reforms Committee in September 1937. However, the gagging orders of the 1920s remained curtailing the freedom of press and restrictions on public speeches and meetings. In response, a ' Hyderabad
Hyderabad
People's Convention' was created, with a working committee of 23 leading Hindus and 5 Muslims. The convention ratified a report, which was submitted to the Constitutional Reforms Committee in January 1938. However, four of the five Muslim members of the working committee refused to sign the report, reducing its potential impact.[34] In February 1938, the Indian National Congress
Indian National Congress
passed the Haripura resolution declaring that the princely states are "an integral part of India," and that it stood for "the same political, social and economic freedom in the States as in the rest of India." Encouraged by this, the standing committee of the People's Convention proposed to form a Hyderabad
Hyderabad
State Congress and an enthusiastic drive to enroll members was begun. By July 1938, the committee claimed to have enrolled 1200 primary members and declared that elections would soon be held for the office-bearers. It called upon both Hindus and Muslims of the state to "shed mutual distrust" and join the "cause of responsible government under the aegis of the Ashaf Jahi dynasty." The Nizam responded by passing a new Public Safety Act on 6 September 1938, three days before the scheduled elections, and issued an order that the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
State Congress would be deemed unlawful.[34] Negotiations with the Nizam's government to lift the ban ended in failure. The Hyderabad
Hyderabad
issue was widely discussed in the newspapers in British India. P. M. Bapat, a leader of the Indian National Congress from Pune, declared that he would launch a satyagraha (civil disobedience movement) in Hyderbad starting 1 November. The Arya Samaj and Hindu Mahasabha
Hindu Mahasabha
also planned to launch satyagrahas on the matter of Hindu civil rights. The Hindu communal pot had been boiling since early 1938 when an Arya Samaj
Arya Samaj
member in Osmanabad district
Osmanabad district
was said to have been murdered for refusing to convert to Islam. In April, there was communal riot in Hyderabad
Hyderabad
between Hindus and Muslims, which raised the allegation of 'oppression of Hindus' in the press in British India. The Arya Samaj
Arya Samaj
leaders hoped to capitalise on these tensions. Perhaps in a bid not to be outdone, the activists of the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
State Congress formed a 'Committee of Action' and initiated a satyagraha on 24 October 1938. The members of the organisation were fielded, who openly declared they belong to the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
State Congress and courted arrest. The Arya Samaj- Hindu Mahasabha
Hindu Mahasabha
combine also launched their own satyagraha on the same day.[34] The Indian National Congress
Indian National Congress
refused to back the satyagraha of the State Congress. The Haripura
Haripura
resolution had in fact been a compromise between the moderates and the radicals. Gandhi had been wary of direct involvement in the states lest the agitations degenerate into violence. The Congress high command was also keen on a firmer collaboration between Hindus and Muslims, which the State Congress lacked. Padmaja Naidu wrote a lengthy report to Gandhi where she castigated the State Congress for lacking unity and cohesion and for being 'communal in [her] sense of the word'. On 24 December, the State Congress suspended the agitation after 300 activists had courted arrest. These activists remained in jail till 1946.[34][35] The Arya Samaj- Hindu Mahasabha
Hindu Mahasabha
combine continued their agitation and intensified it in March 1949. However, the response from the state's Hindus was lacklustre. Of the 8,000 activists that courted arrest by June, about 20% were estimated to be state's residents; the rest were mobilised from British India. The surrounding British Indian provinces of Bombay and Central Provinces
Central Provinces
and, to limited extent, Madras, all governed by Indian National Congress, facilitated the mobilisation, with town such as Ahmednagar, Sholapur, Vijayawada, Pusad
Pusad
and Manmad used as staging posts. Increasingly strident anti- Hyderabad
Hyderabad
propaganda continued in British India. By July–August, the tensions had eased. The Hindu Mahasabha
Hindu Mahasabha
dispatched the Shankaracharya of Jyotirmath
Jyotirmath
on a peace mission, who testified that there was no religious persecution of Hindus in the state. The Nizam government set up a Religious Affairs Committee and announced constitutional reforms by 20 July. Subsequently, the Hindu Mahasabha
Hindu Mahasabha
suspended its campaign on 30 July and the Arya Samaj
Arya Samaj
on 8 August. All the imprisoned activists of the two organisations were released.[34] Communal violence[edit] Prior to the operation[edit] In the 1936–37 Indian elections, the Muslim League under Muhammad Ali Jinnah had sought to harness Muslim aspirations, and had won the adherence of MIM leader Nawab Bahadur Yar Jung, who campaigned for an Islamic State centred on the Nizam as the Sultan dismissing all claims for democracy. The Arya Samaj, a Hindu revivalist movement, had been demanding greater access to power for the Hindu majority since the late 1930s, and was curbed by the Nizam in 1938. The Hyderabad
Hyderabad
State Congress joined forces with the Arya Samaj
Arya Samaj
as well as the Hindu Mahasabha in the State.[36] Noorani regards the MIM under Nawab Bahadur Yar Jung
Bahadur Yar Jung
as explicitly committed to safeguarding the rights of religious and linguistic minorities. However, this changed with the ascent of Qasim Razvi after the Nawab's death in 1944.[37] Even as India
India
and Hyderabad
Hyderabad
negotiated, most of the sub-continent had been thrown into chaos as a result of communal Hindu-Muslim riots pending the imminent partition of India. Fearing a Hindu civil uprising in his own kingdom, the Nizam allowed Razvi to set up a voluntary militia of Muslims called the 'Razakars'. The Razakars – who numbered up to 200,000 at the height of the conflict – swore to uphold Islamic domination in Hyderabad
Hyderabad
and the Deccan plateau[38]:8 in the face of growing public opinion amongst the majority Hindu population favouring the accession of Hyderabad
Hyderabad
into the Indian Union. According to an account by Mohammed Hyder, a civil servant in Osmanabad district, a variety of armed militant groups, including Razakars and Deendars and ethnic militias of Pathans
Pathans
and Arabs
Arabs
claimed to be defending the Islamic faith and made claims on the land. "From the beginning of 1948 the Razakars had extended their activities from Hyderabad
Hyderabad
city into the towns and rural areas, murdering Hindus, abducting women, pillaging houses and fields, and looting non-Muslim property in a widespread reign of terror."[39][40] "Some women became victims of rape and kidnapping by Razakars. Thousands went to jail and braved the cruelties perpetuated by the oppressive administration. Due to the activities of the Razakars, thousands of Hindus had to flee from the state and take shelter in various camps”.[41] Precise numbers are not known, but 40,000 refugees have been received by the Central Provinces.[38]:8 This led to terrorizing of the Hindu community, some of whom went across the border into independent India and organized raids into Nizam's territory, which further escalated the violence. Many of these raiders were controlled by the Congress leadership in India
India
and had links with extremist religious elements in the Hindutva
Hindutva
fold.[42] In all, more than 150 villages (of which 70 were in Indian territory outside Hyderabad
Hyderabad
State) were pushed into violence. Hyder mediated some efforts to minimize the influence of the Razakars.[citation needed] Razvi, while generally receptive, vetoed the option of disarming them, saying that with the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
state army ineffective, the Razakars were the only means of self-defence available. By the end of August 1948, a full blown invasion by India was imminent.[43] Nehru was reluctant to invade, fearing a military response by Pakistan. India
India
was unaware that Pakistan
Pakistan
had no plans to use arms in Hyderabad, unlike Kashmir where it had admitted its troops were present.[38] Time magazine pointed out that if India
India
invaded Hyderabad, the Razakars would massacre Hindus, which would lead to retaliatory massacres of Muslims across India.[44]

During and after the operation[edit] There were reports of looting, mass murder and rape of Muslims in reprisals by Hyderabadi Hindus and Indian Army
Indian Army
soldiers.[45][40] Jawaharlal Nehru
Jawaharlal Nehru
appointed a mixed-faith committee led by Pandit Sunder Lal
Sunder Lal
to investigate the situation. The findings of the report (Pandit Sunderlal Committee Report) were not made public until 2013 when it was accessed from the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library in New Delhi.[45][46] The Committee concluded that while Muslim villagers were disarmed by the Indian Army, Hindus were often left with their weapons.[45] The violence was carried out by Hindu residents, with the army sometimes indifferent, and sometimes participating in the atrocities.[38]:11 The Committee stated that large-scale violence against Muslims occurred in Marathwada
Marathwada
and Telangana
Telangana
areas. It also concluded: "At a number of places members of the armed forces brought out Muslim adult males from villages and towns and massacred them in cold blood."[45] The Committee generally credited the military officers with good conduct but stated that soldiers acted out of bigotry.[38]:11 The official "very conservative estimate" was that 27,000 to 40,000 died "during and after the police action."[45] Other scholars have put the figure at 200,000, or even higher.[47] Among Muslims some estimates were even higher and Smith says that the military government's private low estimates [of Muslim casualties] were at least ten times the number of murders with which the Razakers were officially accused.[48] In William Dalrymple's words the scale of the killing was horrific. Although Nehru played down this violence, he was privately alarmed at the scale of anti-Muslim violence.[49] Patel reacted angrily to the report and disowned its conclusions. He stated that the terms of reference were flawed because they only covered the part during and after the operation. He also cast aspersions on the motives and standing of the committee. These objections are regarded by Noorani as disingenuous because the commission was an official one, and it was critical of the Razakars as well.[47][50] According to Mohammed Hyder, the tragic consequences of the Indian operation were largely preventable. He faulted the Indian army with neither restoring local administration, nor setting up their own military administration. As a result, the anarchy led to several thousand "thugs", from the camps set up across the border, filling the vacuum. He stated "Thousands of families were broken up, children separated from their parents and wives, from their husbands. Women and girls were hunted down and raped."[51] The Committee Report mentions mass rape of Muslim women by Indian troops.[49] According to the communist leader Puccalapalli Sundarayya, Hindus in villages rescued thousands of Muslim families from the Union Army's campaign of rape and murder.[52][non-primary source needed]
