Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) was an Indian pacifist leader. He was the main personality of the independence of India, then British colony. He gained prominence in the fight against the British through his non-violence project. In addition to his struggle for the independence of India, Gandhi was also known for his thoughts and his philosophy. He went to fasts, marches and civil disobedience, that is, he encouraged the non-payment of taxes and the boycott of English products.
Mahatma's political activity was always linked to his philosophical thought of non-violence, the only way to achieve equality. Oppose violence, because violence only increases evil.
