Gandhi Mahatma (Mahatma means ‘great soul’) Gandhi devoted his life to peace and brotherhood in order to achieve social and political progress. His nonviolent resistance to British rule won independence for India, he was then assassinated by a religious fanatic. He studied law at University College in London. Students weren’t very fond of him just because he was Indian.
This was an example of the immorality of apartheid. In spite of how smart you were or what your status was you were still a victim of racism Gandhi declared that he would go to jail or even die before obeying an anti-Asian law. Thousands of Indians joined him in this civil disobedience campaign. He launched a non-cooperation campaign against Britain, urging Indians to spin their own cotton and to boycott British goods, courts, and government. This led to his imprisonment for 2 years. In a protest of a tax salt, Gandhi led thousands of Indians on a 200-mile march to the sea to make their own salt.
He was imprisoned again. Gandhi suffered imprisonment many times and after being beaten by white Southern Africans Gandhi began to teach the policy of passive resistance, and noncooperation with, South African authorities. Gandhi felt victory when India independence. The subcontinent split into two countries (India and Pakistan) and brought Hindu-Muslim riots. Again Gandhi turned to nonviolence, fasting until Delhi rioters pledged peace to him. While on his way to prayer in Delhi, Gandhi was killed by a Hindu who had been maddened by Gandhi’s efforts to reconcile Hindus and Muslims.

I think that Gandhi set an example for many people for years to come. He proved to many people that you can achieve your goals with non-violent operations. Most people think that to solve their problems or get their point across they must use violence, but no matter how many times Gandhi was sent to prison he still kept his beliefs of human rights, justices and the dynamic of “non-violent, peaceful non-cooperation.”.
