Mahatma Gandhi spent much of his life peacefully campaigning for the independence of India from Great Britain. Ironically, when independence finally arrived with the forced separation of India into India and Pakistan, it precipitated his violent end. After partition in 1947 there was widespread violence between Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs, which Ghandi tried to calm, but during a public rally on January 30th 1948, a Hindu nationalist took exception to Ghandi’s attempts to unite the various faiths, and shot him dead.
