The Non-Cooperation Movement led by Mahatma Gandhi was the first nationwide mass protest in the history of Indian Independence however, it was very significant but was in actuality an enormous movement and people of all religions and castes took part in this movement. It marked a new turn to the national movement. After this, the national movement went through a fundamental transformation. The movement no longer remained confined to a few educated sections but witnessed the broadening of popular participation.
