Turkey in World War II, and how it helped IndiaEdit
Turkey is one of the most important Islamic nations of the world. The Sultan of Turkey, ruled by the Ottoman Empire was the Caliph or the Khalifa(The leader of Islam). In the World War II, Turkey joined Germany. This move blocked Russia from the rest of it's allies. Unfortunatley, it was defeated by the British Indian Army. The British humiliated the Caliph which angered the Muslims of India. They started an agitation known as the Khilafat Movement against the British, which was supported by the Hindus and Gandhiji. This agitation helped in Indian independence. This one move of Turkey, helped India indirectly.
This is not an Alternative, but an example of how some moves have indirect influence on something else.
