What would you have done if you were in Gandhi's shoes?1920 was the time when the Noncooperation movement was started and was the first big movement Gandhi was associated with. The boycotting of British goods, professions, institutions, and legislature was the action taken to push the government to bring out the necessary reforms. The involvement of masses amalgamated with the ahimsa ideology was at the full swing when the Chauri Chaura event happened when the police station was burnt by the protesters after British officers provoked them. Gandhi, after citing the violent nature of the progressing movement, called off the movement immediately.
Many leaders, even in Congress, criticized him for calling off the movement. Gandhiji had his own reasons for terminating the program but yes, as we say, if we have to form a democracy then we have to act like a democracy. So, in this very thread, I urge the members to be him for a while and suggest the measure you would have taken according to your ideology.
