This is a timeline of the works of Mahatma Gandhi.
Gandhi establishes the Indian Natal Congress, which is a branch off of the South African Indian Congress. This was one of the first Indian congresses ever created.
He was beaten by a mob of white settlers, but even when this became public knowledge he did not press charges. This event increased Gandhi's support, and the attacker's even publicly apologized to Gandhi.
When the South African colonial government created the "Asian Population Registration Act", which required all citizens in Asian countries to carry around a card identifying them and with a finger print to make sure they were properly identified, Gandhi first began his non-violent protesting which he referred to as satyagraha, which means devotion to the truth.
Gandhi and 2,000 other Indians in Johannesburg burned their cards issued to them by the "Asian Population Registration Act" to protest the act in a non-violent form.
Due to the non-violent efforts of Gandhi and the Indians, and the protesting of the act, the "Asian Population Registration Act" was abolished.
Gandhi encourages people to boycott the British goods and instead of getting their clothing from British imports, to instead make their own clothing.
After the efforts of Gandhi and his followers to boycott British goods, Britain retaliates by passing the Salt Act, which prohibits any Indian citizen from making their own salt. This act could potentially give a citizen up to three years in prison. Gandhi again peacefully protests and ends up in prison once again.
Gandhi launches his campaign called Quit India in a peaceful protest against the British rule of India.
Mahatma Gandhi is assassinated by a Hindu who was unhappy with Gandhi's attempts and achievements at peace.
