MOTILAL NEHRU

Released from the Jail

Thousands of Satyagrahis followed their leader to jail. Gandhiji had fixed a date for
starting the No Tax Disobedience Movement. But the violent turn at Chauri Chaura in Uttar Pradesh came as a big set back. A mob of excited peasants set fire to the Police station and 22 men were burnt in it. Gandhiji was deeply pained at this incident.

He thought that people had not learnt to give up violence, and did not understand the nature of nonviolence. So he decided to suspend the civil resistance movement.

Motilal and Chittranjan Das who came to know of this in jail were upset. Still Motilal
knew that India badly needed Gandhi’s guidance. After being released from the jail, he came out and supported Gandhi’s stand.

The Congress appointed a special commission to find out how successful the non co-operation movement had been. Motilal was made its Chairman. He traveled all over India to collectinformation. His findings were that India was not yet ready for a nonviolent movement. But this report was not accepted by all. So there was a rift in the congress.
