India’s Independence Day is celebrated on August 15th. This is a very important national holiday, marking an important moment for the country to gain independence from the United Kingdom.
This was officially announced on the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence Day on August 15, 1947. He became independent that day, but Hindustan split into India and Pakistan.
History of Independence Day
Although the colonial rule had been in turmoil for nearly 200 years before, the Indian independence movement was promoted after the First World War. Mahatma Gandhi led an uprising against British autocratic rule and organized a passive resistance movement. Although the British government made some small concessions, it was not enough. Dissatisfaction in India continued to grow, and nationalist leaders like Gandhi rejected Britain’s empty promises.
In 1942, during the Second World War, the Indian Congress launched a Quit India movement to withdraw troops from India calling for an end to the British era and led the colonial authorities to arrest and imprison hundreds of nationalists, including Mahatma Gandhi and many more freedom fighters.
Partitioning of India
Despite these judgments, the number of demonstrations after the war increased. Then-Governor of India, Lord Louis Mountbatten, had the right to split the country before 1948, but this date was hastily postponed. The discussion about how successful, it is a controversial topic. The Indian National Assembly reluctantly accepted the establishment of Pakistan in 1947, and on August 15, 1947, the Indian Independence bill came into effect.
