I TELEGRAM FROM VICEROY, HOME DEPARTMENT
(RECD. 5 p.m. 2nd JANUARY, 1919).
Your uelegram of 9th instant. Indian detenus at Malta,
v/e have throughout borne in mind considerations urged by
you and have been influenced by them in decision not to
release dangerous agitators in India.* These considerations
do not however apply equally to Mauiana Mahmud Hassan. We
recognise the probability of a movement in India in favour
of easy terns for Turkey but we thin^^b-Turkish agitation
is more likely to draw strength from the Mauiana * s detention
than from his release. Hitherto he has not been a publicist
or a political agitator. In our opinion his release
would on the whole have beneficial results and would gratify
a large number of loyal Moslems on account M sanctity in
which he is held. We do not think that it would give
rise to an idea that our general policy towards Turkey
is weakening. We should be glad to know if in
consideration of these facts you are prepared to take
course recommended in our telegram of 3rd December.
