Ghandi Led Non Violent Protest Could Not Be Banned
After 21 years in South Africa, Ghandi returned to India in 1915. He became the leader of the Indian nationalist movement campaigning for home rule or Swaraj.
Ghandi successfully instigated a series of non violent protest. This included national strikes for one or two days. The British sought to ban opposition, but the nature of non-violent protest and strikes made it difficult to counter.
Ghandi frequently called off strikes and non-violent protest if he heard people were rioting or violence was involved. Ghandi was a seeker of the truth.
"In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth."
He said his great aim in life was to have a vision of God. He sought to see worship God and promote religious understanding.
He sought inspiration from many different religions - Jainism, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism and incorporate them into his own philosophy.
"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind." Mahatma Ghandi
