Solution

Gandhiji decided to launch nationwide satyagraha against the proposed Rowlatt Act in 1919 because of the following reasons:

  • The success of satyagraha movement in regions like Champaran, Kheda and Ahmedabad had prepared the ground for nationwide satyagraha.
  • The terms and conditions of Rowlatt Act were obnoxious as they were violative of civil rights of Indians.
  • Jallianwala Bagh massacre was an inhuman and barbarous tragedy.
  • The Khilafat issue had brought in the opportunity of binding Hindus and Muslims.
