How was Quit India movement genuinely a mass movement?
Conditions that are accountable for Quit India Movement are listed below:
(A) In the year 1942, Sir Stafford Cripps was sent to India by Winston Churchill who was the conservative Prime Minister of Britain for trying and forcing to comprise with Mahatma Gandhiji while insisting that if it was to assist the British in defending India from the Axis strengths, then the Viceroy had to initially appoint an Indian as the Defense Member included in his Executive Council.
(B) The entry of Japan, the Axis power in India, during the World War II.
(C) British’s defeat in the World War.
The above situations resulted in the launch of Quit India Movement that was against the British rule. Its major attributes were that it was a mass movement that brought into its ambit thousands of ordinary India while particularly energising the young who in huge numbers left their colleges for joining the Congress leaders languishing in prisons.
Following the failure of the Cripps Mission, Gandhiji formed a decision to launch his third main movement, the Quit India campaign which initialized in August 1942. He was jailed at once but young activists arranged strikes as well as acts of sabotage all around the nation.
