Explanation :
In 1910, TarakNath Das and G.D. Kumar set up the united India house in Seattle and U.S.A. The first fillip to the revolutionary movement was provided by the visit to Vancouver, in early 1913, of Bhagwan Singh, a Sikh priest who had worked in Hong Kong and the Malay states. He openly preached the need for violent overthrow of the British rule and urged the people to adopt Vande Mataram as a revolutionary salute.
