ABOUT MAHATMA GANDHI
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, or more popularly known as Mahatma Gandhi, was on born on 2 October 1869 in Porbandar, India. In 1888 Gandhi went to London to study law and then arrived in South Africa in 1893 to provide legal aid to an Indian company and finally left again in 1914. The non-violent protest that Gandhi is well known for is the ‘Salt March’ in India, defying the British government’s tax on salt by walking 200 miles to collect natural salt at the coast. This resulted in him being arrested and jailed, not the first time that Gandhi spent time in jail as a result of a non-violent protest. Throughout his life, he was able to inspire people and he dedicated his life to fight injustice and call for peace. On 30 January 1948 Gandhi was assassinated by a Hindu fundamentalist.
