Individual Civil Disobedience is permissible if the act is not against Congress creed. So if the whole book 'Satyagraha Prakasha' is to be printed and distributed it may be done and thereby Government may be opposed. But to print and distribute only one chapter of the book will only strain the relations between the two communities and that is not the congress creed.
