While the Mughal empire was collapsing (the last seat of power before the British came) The East India Company came Hailing from the great British empire to seek out India’s potential and profit. After the sepoy rebellion in 1857 the British government came at the beck and call of the company to take over. India was no longer a trade partner, it was now a colonie. The British government made the political piece of their rule as efficient as possible, dividing the country against each other
Forced Founder’s, written by Woody Holton, sheds new light on one of the best-known events in American History. Holton challenges the traditional narrative of the great land-owning elite leading the revolutionary war. He does not believe it was one single factor but in fact, a web of influences that pushed Virginia into the war of independence. Holton’s main argument consists of the idea that the Indians, merchants, slaves, and debtors helped propel free Virginians into the independence movement. Virginia’s gentry were joining their peers in declaring independence from Britain in response to grassroots rebellions against their own rule.
This was due to the passing of the Indian Independence Act, which “ended British rule in India” (Wadley 203). In addition, the act allowed India to divide into two sections: India (for Hindus) and Pakistan (for Muslims). Jawaharlal Nehru became Prime Minister of India. Nehru discussed this at the Constituent Assembly. He talked about the future for India, and how they have more steps to take.
In India, there was also religious turmoil. Hindus and Muslims, both key religious groups, were at odds with each other. A ruler named Akbar attempted to fix the religious state of his country by establishing a new religion known as the Divine Faith – a mixture of Islam, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, and Christianity. It also promoted tolerance among citizens. With this newfound tolerance came a state of cultural syncretism that resulted in, among other things, the production of art and architecture.
Part of the Quaid-i-Azam: Jinnah did a considerable measure to unite the two countries alongside the acknowledgment of the privileges of Muslims. Meeting of both sides held at Lucknow in 1916. The established recommendations were endorsed: • One Third seats for Muslims in the Imperial Legislative Council • Separate Electorate. • Half individuals from the Executive Council to be chosen by the Imperial Authoritative Council. • Appointed positions of the armed force for Indians.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, more commonly known as ‘Mahatma’ (meaning ‘Great Soul’), was the leader of the Indian independence movement during the British Raj. Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. India won independence from Britain in 1947, thanks in large part to Gandhi's peaceful civil disobedience campaign. After independence, Gandhi kept active in his non-violence movement by trying to stop the Hindu-Muslim conflict in Bengal. He was also involved in opposing discriminatory legislation against Indians in South Africa.
Jefferson uses logos in the list because he’s using actually examples that the British king did, to appeal to the logic of the colonists, about why they are separating from Britain. A scholarly article through Penn State, written by Tim Burgoyne, also analyzed the Declaration of Independence. In his analysis he stated, “Further examples of logos is seen in the numerous grievances listed. Every single one of them is one reason why the colonies are choosing to separate from Britain” (Burgoyne). Once again, one can see the use of personification, done thru the capitalization of words, which emphasizes the importance of them.
To this day we believe that the British government, changed the found fathers view on government after limiting the king’s power. The Enlightenment thinkers also influenced us with their intelligence and discoveries. It is also believed that the failures of the Articles of Confederation influenced the United States Constitution because the founding fathers did not want for their government to fail, like it did with the articles. Without the influences of the United States Constitution, the United States government today would not be the same. For example without the United States Constitution, marriage rights could be denied to same sex couple, we would have our democratic right to vote for a president every 4 years, and etc.
In conclusion, I think that Gandhi was quite important in India gaining independence as he had done many things that impacted the peoples view of the British government, however I feel that other factors and individuals should also be given equal credit as they had also played a major part in the gaining of independence of India from Britain as they had not only impacted the wealth of Britain at the time but they had also changed not only the British governments view of the colony in India but also other countries view of it and so in my opinion, should the other factors and individuals not have played a part, Gandhi might not have managed to achieve independence for India from the
Strongly established ideological disagreements and cultural variances have remained at the forefront of struggle dating back thousands of years, albeit the form of government and societal composition. In Gandhi 's "Hind Swaraj," Gandhi outlines his explicit and adversarial outlook surrounding the brittle relationship between the British Empire and India, along with his opinions on modernization and the methods of resistance India should engage. Firstly, the title of the text refers to Indian self-rule; meaning, the people of India should have absolute and unimpeded control of their government. It is essential to note that at the time of Gandhi 's writing, the British Empire ruled over India. Gandhi advocated for an India that is self-governed in accordance with Indian principles, values, and practices.
