Transcript of Significant events in Gandhi's life

The most significant events in his life Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi In PietermaritzburgSouth Africa, Gandhi was thrown off of his
train because he refused to move down to third class
from his first class seat. 1893 Gandhi and many fellow Indians rebel against the government by
burning their registration cards. 1908 The Amritsar massacre or also known as Jallianwala Bagh Massacre
was the day that the British army killed almost 400 Indians
and severely injured more than 1000 for merely no cause. 1919 Gandhi used fasting like a political device; he would threaten
his life in order to get people’s attention. The congress
publicized his fasting as a way for people to feel
sympathy for him and to listen to what he has to say. 1947 Gandhi walked 241 miles in 23 days to show his civil disobedience.
The walk caught worldwide attention. The British placed extremely
high taxes on the Indians salt, which was a necessity to live. 1930 Even though Gandhi had a first class ticket, he still had no choice but to move to third class, or be thrown off of the train. Discrimination against Indians in South Africa was not uncommon, but this event inspired Gandhi to start his protest against racial discrimination. This event was very significant because it awakened him to social injustice and started everything that is now known as Gandhi’s legacy. All Indians were obligated to carry a card with them at all times which identified their name, age, job, address and other personal information. This was when Gandhi developed his methodology of satyagraha or ahimsa which is devotion to the truth or non-violent protest. Gandhi felt as though this act was unjust. Non-violent rallies started to grow in size. Him along with thousands of Indians were arrested multiple times for not obeying these laws and eventually after six years of protest, the Registration act was abolished. There was a peaceful protest in action, with more than 10 000 Indians with woman and children also present. All of the attendants were non-threatening and unarmed. The British general at the time, Edward Dyer ordered his men to open fire on the crowds of innocent people. This event was so disgraceful because of the in-humane displays of the ruthless British men who trapped these people to death. This ultimately led to the freedom of India because it resulted in the uprising of the Indians against the British. He fasted on a few different occasions, first in 1932 to protest the segregation of the untouchables. His hunger strike in 1943 occurred in prison during his two year sentence for the ‘Quit India’ movement. His final fast which I would consider the most significant, was in 1948. This was after the partition of India. The conflict in between the India and Pakistan was very violent and no one was abiding to Gandhi’s ways. He fasted for 21 days and eventually all Muslims and Hindus both pledged to die before they became violent with one and other # 1 #2 #3 #5 Gandhi fasted on a few different occasions.

Gandhi walked to the sea with 78 followers. He completed his march to the ocean and picked up a chunk of salt, a transgression of the British law. Thousands of other Indians joined the protest and took salt off the coast. Gandhi was arrested for breaking the law along with many others, simply for practicing this act of civil disobedience. Hundreds of thousands of people protested Gandhi’s arrest and he was eventually released from jail. Gandhi gained many followers from this movement.
