On this day, 

1️⃣ Quit India Movement: It is celebrated in the memory of the Quit India movement that shows off the clash of freedom fighters. The Quit India Movement is also recognized as August Kranti Diwas or Bharat Chodo Andolan.


History:

It was started by Gandhiji on 8 August 1942, during World War II, demanding to end the British Rule in India. In his speech at Mumbai’s Gowalia Tank, Gandhiji called the nation to ‘Do or Die’ in his speech. Within an hour of his speech, nearly the whole INC was jailed while not trial. National leaders like Abdul Kalam Azad, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and Jawaharlal Nehru were detained.

The British would not give immediate independence and expressed that it must be allowed after the war ended. At long last, India got freedom in 1947.


3 famous quotes used by Gandhiji:

  1. Hindu-Muslim unity is not a new thing. Millions of Hindus and Muslim have sought after it.

  2. The mantra is: 'Do or Die'. We shall either free India or die in the attempt; we shall not live to see the perpetuation of our slavery.

  3. Think what difference it would make if India was to participate as a free ally.
