How did Jos� Rizal became a national hero?

Jose Rizal became a national hero of the Philippines as a reformist who advocated peacefully for liberty rather than through violent means. He was a forerunner of Gandhi and along with Sun Yat Sen and Tagore, the thought climate was changed throughout Asia. His work and the work of others led to the attrition of colonialism. While Rizal was non-violent, his writing that showed the great disparity of his day was partly responsible for the Philippine Revolution. The writer Benedict Anderson said of Rizal that he inspired others with the importance of national identity.
