The Quit India Movement
The Indian National Congress at its Bombay session (August 1942) passed the famous Quit India resolution, calling for a mass struggle under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. "Do or Die" was the mantra which Gandhiji gave to the people of India. However, even before the Congress could start the movement, the British administrative machinery came down heavily on the protesters. All the major leaders of India were arrested and the Congress itself was declared illegal. A dismayed India reacted spontaneously against this repressive act. Popular revolts broke out across the length and breadth of the country, with the battle cry of "British Leave India", and the civil disobedience movement has come to be known as the "Quit India Movement"
