When Gandhi was in South Africa during the 1890's, he was subjected to the injustice of the colonial imperialism in the nation

When Gandhi was in South Africa during the 1890's, he was subjected to the injustice of the colonial imperialism in the nation. He was a victim of racial discrimination and social bigotry that plagued the nation that had not only impacted him, but also led to his social activism. In 1894, he was responsible for forming the Natal Indian Congress (NIC) in South Africa with the help of the Indian community which later, molded into a strong political party in the country. In 1906 when his political members conducting a peaceful protest were subjected to harsh and violent treatment by the local government, he formed the idea of "Satyagraha", meaning the force of truth. When he left for India, Gandhi witnessed similar treatment in the country and carried out his work to help protest against the dominance of the British Raj. In the years to come his non-violence principle was witnessed, first in 1920 when the Non-Cooperation Movement took place and later seen in the Dandi March in 1930 as well as in The Quit India Movement. Gandhi may have not been a martyr in the true sense but he dedicated his entire life to attain freedom by resisting violence. Thus, Gandhi Jayanti is an important day for all Indians.
