Nationalism of India

In the beginning, Indians were not happy with British ruling them. They could not advance to a higher position in the government, and they lacked equal job opportunities. It was when war broke out, that Indians took it upon them to make a difference. In 1914, Britain declared that India was at war with Germany. As the Indian troops fought, Indians had now gotten a greater role in political affairs.
To control the protests, Britain passed the Rowlatt Act in 1919. This Act made Indians go to jail for 2 years without trial. This infuriated many Indians. There was one man who stood up for India, to make a difference. This man was Mohandas Gandhi. He became the leader in the Indian Independence, and fought with nonviolent protests.

Independence of India

Slowly and steadily, India gained independence through nationalist acts. They also did non-violent rebellions which was lead through by Gandhi. Non-violent acts meant that people would peacefully not cooperate. For examples, Gandhi's hunger strikes, labor strikes, protest marches, and refusal to pay taxes. With Gandhi's help, Britain gave India independence in 1947.
