The Reasons for Indians’ protesting against the Rowlatt Act.

This Act was a serious blow to the Indian Nationalist Movement. It was an open betrayal of the promises made at the time of World War I by Britishers. The Act aroused sharp protests from all Sections of the Indian people. Mahatma Gandhi wrote an open letter to the Viceroy to withdraw this ‘Black Act’ and criticized the designs of British Government to crush the national movement for freedom. This is the reason that people were opposing Rowlatt Act.
