Social Science: Nationalism in India - Towards Civil Disobedience - The Limits of Civil Disobedience


"The Civil Disobedience Movement was different from the Non-Cooperation Movement." Support the statement with examples.



The difference between non cooperation and civil disobedience movement are as follows:

In the noncooperation movement , people were asked to refuse cooperation with the British However, in the civil disobedience movement the agenda was not just to refuse cooperation but to also break all laws established by the British.

The civil disobedience movement also witnessed the participation of women in larger number. This possible with the efforts of Gandhi. The non-cooperation was just the first mass movement so the participation was comparatively lesser as compared to in the second mass movement.

The civil disobedience movement reached down to the participation of many more social classes as compared to the non-cooperation movement. WE now see village officials resigning from their seat, plantation workers participating in large numbers.
