Many leaders came forefront and participated wholeheartedly to bring justice and equality in our country. We have heard many epics, stories behind the struggle for national independence.
He created gaps between Hindus and Muslims | Rewind the History
When we say Independence, many people’s name comes in our mind like Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Subhash Chandra Bose, Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, Dadabhai Naoroji, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and many more. They contributed a lot and taught others too to fight for their rights. They taught us the lesson of unity and Self rule. Where there are many good leaders, there are some people who has introduced a huge gap between people and they categorized them as Hindus and Muslims.
Since long our country is fighting against Corruption, Bad Politics, injustice, weak laws, bribe, dowry and still counting. But the main and important reason behind weaken unity is increasing Hindu and Muslims gap.
Below are some reforms who left great impact :
Indian National Movement was formed in December 1885 by A.O Hume, a retired British Official. 72 educated Indian people helped him to become the backbone of the National Movement.
This reform was introduced by Lord Curzon to weaken the Hindu-Muslim Unity in the National Movement. In 1905, he issued an order to partition Bengal. Though the official reason was told that it was unable to govern such huge region. There were protests against the partition and that day today is called as Day of Mourning. This gave birth to Swadeshi movement wherein foreign goods were boycotted. It spread from Bengal to Maharashtra and Punjab.
It was the Britishers who were practicing divide and rule to weaken the nationalist movement. They encouraged the Muslims to form an organization of their own. This is how Muslim League was formed in 1906 by Aga Khan. He was the head of Muslim Sect and Nawab Salimulla of Dhaka.
In 2012, Forbes magazine listed Aga khan in the top world’s ten richest royals with an estimated net worth of $800 million.
On April 13, 1919, many people of Punjab gathered at Jallianwala bagh near Golden temple in Amritsar. They were protesting peacefully against the arrest of Dr Satya Pal and Saiffudin Kitchlew. These were the two leaders who supported national movement. General Dyer ordered the British armed forces to fire on all the innocent unarmed people, women, children. They killed hundreds of people and this stunned the whole country. The Government imposed Martial law in Punjab under which people were tortured, mails were censored and newspapers were banned.
There are many reforms and movements which was being imposed by leaders, peasants, protesters to bring peace and equality in our country. They were successful to some extent but without unity nothing can happen.
If we see in today’s scenario, people are still fighting not for their rights but to defeat others. People follow blindly and get influenced by others easily. Today people started judging others by their caste and religion not by their nature and work. It keeps on going like that only until and unless we bring some major change from low level to higher level.
We can only hope that our this fight would stop one day with peace.
