Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Mohandas Gandhi, also known as Mahatma Gandhi, led the independence movement of India, using peaceful, non-violent actions, like civil disobedience, boycotts, fasts, and marches. The biggest blow to british rule was the legendary Salt March, where Gandhi walked 200 miles to the sea, collecting followers as he went, as an act of civil disobedience.
On August 15, 1947, the British evacuated India, therefore making India an independent country. Although India had its own government, conflict broke out between the Hindu and Muslim populations, just like every other country once ruled by the British.
At the same time of the independence of India, the Muslim v. Hindu conflict had became too much. The British decided to come back to India to move the Muslims to another country. On August 14, 1947, this partition declared three separate countries-West Pakistan(now known as just Pakistan), East Pakistan(now known as Bangladesh), and India.
