Indian Muslims who had participated in the Khilafat movement to restore the status of the Caliph gave their support to the non-cooperation movement.
In response to the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre and other violence in Punjab, the movement sought to secure Swarajindependence for India. Gandhi promised Swaraj in one year if his Non-Cooperation programme was fully implemented.
