Montagu’s report and the act that follows is seen by Barton as a great step forward, but it is despised by Congress leaders who think that it does not go far enough. The Rowlatt Act, passed on 18 March 1919, predictably causes an outcry among extremists as some of the powers of detention taken during the Great War are to be retained. Gandhi uses his legendary ability to promote his own particular method of confronting an imperial power—non-violent non-cooperation. He proclaims a hartal, hoping that the whole country will come to a halt without any bloodshed but the protests soon turn violent.

Keywords:   Edwin Montagu, Rowlatt Act, Congress, Gandhi, non-cooperation, hartal
