Fun Facts, Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or known as Mahatma Gandhi, was the preeminent leader of Indian nationalism in British-ruled India. Employing non-violent civil disobedience, he led India to independence and inspired movements for non-violence, civil rights and freedom across the world. 

Born on October 2, 1869, he became famous by fighting for the civil rights of Muslim and Hindu Indians in South Africa, using the new techniques of non-violent civil disobedience that he developed.

He was assassinated on 30 January 1948 by a Hindu nationalist who thought Gandhi was too sympathetic to India’s Muslims.
