Describe the various problem in unifying people in India by the end of the 19th century.

Answer :

The nationalists made sincere efforts to unify people against the British Government. It was not an easy task to unify them. The following were some of the problems involved in the process:

1. The past history of India was based on facts about Hinduism and Hindu mythologies.

2. The images that were celebrated were drawn from Hindu iconography.

3. This made the people of other communities feel isolated.

4. Moreover, Mahatma Gandhiji’s leadership tried to channel people’s grievances into an organised movement.

5. However, there was participation from people belonging to different groups and classes each having their own aspirations and expectations.

6. Hence, the meaning of freedom from the British rule was interpreted in different ways by different societies of people.

7. The demands of one group did not alienate each other.

8. It was the leaders who constantly worked to unite all classes of people and tried to resolve their grievances.

9. There were episodes of frequent disunity and conflicts between the different groups of people.

Thus, unifying people with different views of freedom was difficult, but our leaders strived hard to free our country from the British clutches.
