Guru ka Bagh Satyagrah

Description Non-violence and non-violent public protest and mass movement was adopted by Mahatma Gandhi for India's independence from the British rule. But the real precedent and model for this sort of non-violent mass movement was set much earlier by the Akali Sikhs during their religious agitation or Satygarha in 1922 for the liberation of their sacred shrine 'Guru ka Bagh' in District Amritsar, Punjab. This Akali Sikh non-violent movement despite unprecedented brutality and beatings by the British police became and ideal for India's topmost freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi. This booklet written by a non-Sikh press correspondent of the Allahabad based national newspaper 'The Independent', gives an eye-witness account of this ideal non-violent agitation and its ultimate success. The account is based on this correspondent's diary notings, press dispatches and the articles written in his newspaper. It is highly objective and comprehensive[edit]
