A brief note on Non-cooperation Movement

Non-cooperation Movement

Gandhiji launched the non-cooperation movement with three clear objectives in view.

  1. The remedy of the Punjab wrong and demand punishment for Gen. R. Dyer.
  2. To bring about an amicable solution to Khilafat question.
  3. Fulfillment of the demand for Swaraj.

The Indian National congress outlined a seven-item program of non-cooperation.

  1. Surrender of titles and honorary offices.
  2. Refusal to attend government official and non-official functions.
  3. Boycott of government and government-aided schools and colleges.
  4. Boycott of British courts.
  5. Refusal of all classes to offer themselves for service in Mesopotamia.
  6. Boycott of elections to the provincial and central assembly.
  7. Boycott of British goods.

The constructive program consisted of:

  1. To set up national education institutions.
  2. Promotion of Swadeshi industry, particularly the weaving and hand-spinning industry.
  3. Abolition of untouchability that was prevalent in Hindu society.
  4. Hindu-Muslim unity.
  5. To raise a fund of a crore of rupees after the name of Tilak.
  6. Panchayats were to be established for setting disputes.
  7. To observe strict non-violence.

Gandhiji assured the nation that if the program was fully implemented, Swaraj would be achieved within the year.
