Summary
1983. Gandhi realizes that the laws are biased against Indians and decides to start a non-violent protest campaign for the rights of all South African Indians. The government finally relents and recognizing rights for Indians. Gandhi goes back to India, where he is now considered something of a national hero. He is urged to take up the fight for India's independence from the British Empire. Gandhi agrees, and mounts a non-violent campaign of unprecedented scale. The campaign generates great attention and the Britain face intense public pressure. Weaken from World War II, the Britain finally grant India's independence. Religious tensions between Hindus and Muslims erupt into nationwide violence. Gandhi declares a hunger strike, saying he will not eat until the fighting stops. Pakistan is created for the Muslims and it is hoped that the violence will abate. Gandhi is opposed to the idea. Gandhi spends his last days trying to bring about peace between both nations. He angers many dissidents on both sides, one of whom finally gets close enough to assassinate him
