The inaugural issue of The Independent Hindustan

September 1920
The Independent Hindustan, the official Hindustan Gadar Party publication, is first published. In 1923 it was renamed The United States of India.

The opening 1920 editorial expressed the publication’s aims: “Actuated by a definite, determined and deliberate purpose, we are before you to interpret and inform concerning revolutionary and progressive spirit which is guiding the destiny of India.” Some of the essays included in the inaugural issue were titled “Irish Revolt in India,” “Rousing the British Public,” “Plight of Indian Labor in Fiji,” and “Free India from English Pirates—Plea of an Australian.”
