It was an orthodox society which stood for the preservation of the status quo in socio-religious matters, opposing even the abolition of sati. Since the Sabha organized its defense of the indigenous culture against alien intrusion and used collective political means to articulate its position, it became modern India’s first proto-nationalist movement. However, it favoured the promotion of Western education, even for girls. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
