The Indian Appeal was a monthly journal set up by an Indian student at Oxford University, Hira Lal Kumar. It began in September 1889 with the aims to publicise Indian questions in the UK and provide summaries of opinions from India on these questions. The journal included discussion of the achievements of other Indian students in the UK, and events at the National Indian Association and Northbrook Club.

The subscription was 3/ per annum or 3d monthly and appeared to be financed totally by subscriptions and Kumar's efforts. The last issue was published in April 1892, as Kumar was not receiving enough subscriptions to keep up with the costs.
