Gandhi was able to maintain his goal of having only non-violent protests, because of the large following he was able to obtain to rise up to the government and cause too much trouble for them to handle at the end of World War two, that Britain was better off leaving India. The independence of India was won by non-violent protests alone which included civil disobedience, passive resistance, boycotting, etc. Even though there were many deaths during these protests to gain independence, they were still able to use this sacrifice to complete their goal of gaining independence. Gandhi was not only able to hold on to and complete his goal while maintaining his belief of being nonviolent, he also influenced millions of people worldwide that also left an impact that would influence the independence protesting methods of other countries. Unfortunately Gandhi´s view on certain people, equality for all, which some people did not agree with led to Gandhi´s assassination.
