Why did Gandhiji decide to launch a nationwide Satyagraha against the proposed Rowlatt Act, 1919? Explain. (CBSE 2014)

Answer :

Mahatma Gandhi decided to launch a satyagraha against Rowlatt Act because:

2. The Act gave the government the power to repress political activities and detain political prisoners without a trial for two years.

3. Gandhi wanted to begin a non-violent civil disobedience movement against this law because it was completely unjust.

Explanation: Gandhi wanted the people to protest against the exploitation of British rule with the help of non-violence so asked the people to protest against Rowlat Act.
