How did India gain independence from Great Britain?

Answer

India gained its independence from Great Britain through a long political and social struggle. In the early 20th century, the Indian National Congress developed more extreme views and started pushing for independence. In 1920 Mahatma Gandhi entered the scene and started a movement against the British. Through non-cooperation and peaceful protests Gandhi's movement eventually convinced the British that they needed to leave for its own best interest and India gained independence on August 15, 1947.
