    Violence erupted; entire towns were burned. If we want to learn the use of arms with the greatest possible despatch, it is our duty to enlist ourselves in the army. Returning to his birthplace of India, Gandhi spent his remaining years working to end British rule of his country and to better the lives of India's poorest classes. Although Gandhi had survived five other assassination attempts, he fell to the ground, dead. An achievement while on the committee was the establishment of a Bayswater chapter.

    Having intended to stay a year, he ended up remaining until his wife and children had joined him, meanwhile, in They were trained and medically certified to serve on the front lines. This day was commemorated by almost every other Indian organisation. The deadline passed without change. After a week, Gandhi was asked to go to the Dutch-governed Transvaal province.

    If we want to learn the use of arms with the greatest possible despatch, it is our duty to enlist ourselves in the army. Having received permission to leave his monastery, he went on a journey to confer with mystics of the Hindu and Buddhist traditions. Although it began as an organization for wealthy Indians, Gandhi expanded it to all classes and castes. Mohandas grew up in a home steeped in Vaishnavism —worship of the Hindu god Vishnu —with a strong tinge of Jainisma morally rigorous Indian religion whose chief tenets are nonviolence and the belief that everything in the universe is eternal.

Confronting British When the war ended, Gandhi focused on the fight for Indian self-rule swaraj. In FebruaryGandhi cautioned the Viceroy of India with a cable communication that if the British were to pass the Rowlatt Acthe would appeal to Indians to start civil disobedience.

Gandhi's reasoning is that the permits are an unfair and oppressive symbol of Afrikaner rule over minorities. On 9 April, Gandhi was arrested. What was extraordinary was the way his youthful transgressions ended. Religious tensions between Hindus and Muslims erupt into nationwide violence.

Troops led by British Brigadier General Reginald Dyer fired machine guns into a crowd of unarmed demonstrators and killed nearly people. The British did not recognise the declaration but negotiations ensued, with the Congress taking a role in provincial government in the late s.

Peaceful picketing and marches were conducted. He became a leader of South Africa's Indian community, his activism covered by newspapers in England and India.

He pushed through a resolution at the Calcutta Congress in December calling on the British government to grant India dominion status or face a new campaign of non-co-operation with complete independence for the country as its goal.

However, the Hindu leaders including Rabindranath Tagore questioned Gandhi's leadership because they were largely against recognising or supporting the Sunni Islamic Caliph in Turkey.
