Is contravention of the law as understood by the colonial power necessarily an “anti-colonial” act?
…though the [colonial] power imposes the taxes (whether direct in the form of an income tax or indirect as customs dues, &c.), and the general rate of the former is fixed by the Governor, the actual assessment is in the hands of the native ruler and his representatives-the district and village heads -guided and assisted by the British staff.

After realizing the situation of the French Government and what it comports of justice, benevolence and power, in all its lands, and knowing how happy are its friends and how miserable its enemies, and convinced that no people, however powerful, can rival the French government or oppose, unless they be blinded by their ignorance, I have decided to give…some advice to my Muslim brothers that they not be drawn into wars, that they reflect on the consequences of things and that Satan, always the friend of disorder, not be able to deceive them…
The French Government, thanks to God, has not opposed the profession of faith but on the contrary has been friendly towards Muslims and encouraged them to practice (their religion). We have noted that in many of the lands of the blacks that, thanks to French occupation, the inhabitants who, far from being Muslim were pillagers, living at the expense of the traveler and the weak, have changed to become calm and peaceful and that now, among them, the sheep and jackals march together.
