Quit India Movement:
The Quit India Movement is also known as India August Movement or Bharat Chodo Andolan. It was launched by Mahatma Gandhi at the Bombay session of the All-India Congress Committee (AICC) on 8 August 1942 during World War II. The movement demanded “An Orderly British Withdrawal” from India. As the movement was held in August, it is also known as August Kranti or August Movement. Under the movement, more than 1,00,000 people were arrested and the government resorted to violence in order to crush the agitation. The movement was crushed in 1944 as the British refused to grant immediate independence. But after the Quit India movement, the British cited that immediate independence could happen only after WII had ended.
