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.
He successfully achieved his goal to spread peace and his own teachings, encouraging everyone else to follow his path. Gandhi, the “Father of the Nation”, of the world, and ambassador of universal peace is a leader that has positively changed humanity.
For the development and sustainability of his nation he took major steps subsequently. Firstly he went for bringing end to the isolation of the country and ad jointly by introducing the National Assembly, Lodoe Tshogdu and the abolishment of serfdom in the country. By doing so, he gained the complete trust from his people and moved forward with his initiative
On this occasion 60,000 people including Gandhi were jailed. Throughout the struggle for Indian independence Gandhi would be jailed multiple times and embark on various hunger strikes to encourage cooperation between divided factions in Indian as well as the British colonial government. Thirty-three years after his return India Gandhi saw his dream come true when Britain granted India independence but this came with a price. India was split in two; the separate country of Pakistan was formed for Indian Muslims. It was Gandhi’s efforts to bring peace and unification between Hindus and Muslims that eventually led to his assassination in 1948 (History.com Staff, 2010).
During his time there, he was treated harshly and was disrespected by many white people. South Africa was predominantly populated with white Europeans that don’t like Indians. Then one day, Gandhi was traveling to Johannesburg by train and he was booked a first class seat. When he entered the train, a white fold saw that he was a ‘colored’ man, and it apparently disturbed him. Soon, two officials approached Gandhi and told him that he needed to go to the van compartment.
B. He witnessed great discrimination and oppression towards Indian minorities in South Africa. Eventually, he started his civil rights movement. He helped Indians fight for their rights in South Africa and led many successful campaigns which forced the government provide better rights to Indians. C. He then founded Natal In... ... middle of paper ... ...zine in 1930.

I agree with Kellie Ailes’ statement in the sense that this wasn’t just a famous speech; it was in fact a message of hope. Hope for our future is why our founding fathers wrote the declaration of independence, and why Martin Luther King Jr. gave his speech. There was no “hate” in this speech at all, his words were mostly about peace, thus offering a vision that everyone could buy into. Martin Luther King Jr. addressed what all our great leaders sought out to address, the message of the American creed.
Through India, streets were blocked by squatting Indians who refused to rise even when beaten by the police. He declared he would go to jail even die before obeying anti-Asian Law. Gandhi was arrested, but the British were soon forced to release him. Economic independence for India, involving the complete boycott of British goods, was made a result of Gandhi's self-ruling movement. The economic aspects of the movement were serious, for the exploitation of Indian villagers by British industrialists has resulted in extreme poverty in the country and the virtual destruction of Indian home industries.
For Hindus the cow is sacred, whilst Muslims believe that the pig is a filthy beast. Inevitably, some of the Sepoys refused to use the ammunition, and as a consequence were shackled in chains and imprisoned. Incensed by this move their comrades revolted and freed them. In their escape they viciously killed several British soldiers and this was to set the tone for some savage scenes, especially for the next six months. The Indian garrison at Delhi joined the mutineers and proclaimed Bahadur Shah, the titular Mughal emperor as their leader.The capture of Delhi turned the mutiny into a wide-spread revolt.
When Elie wrote his memoir, Night, he conveyed his tone of abandonment towards his morals and humanity that reinforced his ideas of people and the world around him. Set in Nazi Germany, Night states how the Holocaust took Jews out of happy lives, took away everything that meant anything to Jewish culture and life, and forced slavery onto the abused people, under the heavy hand to Hitler and the merciless SS soldiers. The Nazis were ruthless to the Jews. “If anyone goes missing, you will all be shot” (24) one of the soldiers declared to Eliezer’s cattle car. The SS loved to show off their power to the Jews, mainly by killing or injuring, emotionally and physically, without a second thought to how the tortured bodies they attack feel.
