On August 9, 1942, the people of India launched the decisive final phase of the struggle for independence. It was a mass upsurge against the colonial rule on a scale not seen earlier, and it sent out the unmistakable message that the sun was about to set on the British Empire in India.
Launched by Mahatma Gandhi on August 8, 1942, the Quit India Movement, also known as the “Bharat Chhodo Andolan”, was a mass civil disobedience movement that took place in the country. With ‘do or die’ being the dominant sentiment, the movement demanded an immediate exit of the British from India.
