Launch of the Non-Cooperation Movement
Mahatma Gandhi launched the non-cooperation movement to withdraw the support by Indians on which the British empire flourished. The movement was launched to oppose the Rowlette Act which was passed despite the opposition by Indian Lawyers. On 13 April, a peaceful procession against the act was disrupted by the British who fired at protestors and violently tried to suppress them. This came to be known as the Jalianwala Bagh massacre and it prompted Gandhi to launch the non-cooperation movement.
The non-cooperation movement aimed at minimising the reliance on the British government and resisting it as much as possible. The idea was to not cooperate with the British Raj and boycott all the government institutions. This movement united the country as along with the non-cooperation movement, Muslims also started Khilafat Movement. Both the movement aimed for the same results and hence achieved Hindu-Muslim unity. Also, the non-cooperative movement benefitted all the sections of society such as women, students, zamindars, etc. which helped in achieving unity in the country.
