The Salt March of 1930
With this, I am shaking the foundations of the British empire.
Gandhi is assassinated by a Hindu nationalist who disapproved of his tolerance of Muslims in 1948
How can you tolerate Muslims?
After graduating from law school, Gandhi was hired to work as a lawyer in South Africa. Riding in the first class car of a train to work with a first class ticket, he was asked to move to 3rd class for a white passenger to take his seat. Gandhi refused, which got him thrown off the train.
In 1930, during which time making their own salt was illegal for the Indian people, Gandhi progressed on a 24 day journey from his home to the shore of the Arabian Sea. Once he reached his destination, he grabbed a handful of salt, breaking the British law, and exclaiming that he was shaking the British empire's foundation.
Gandhi had wanted the Hindu and Muslim people to live together peacefully. He continued visiting people all over India, but during one of his visits, a Hindu man angry at Gandhi for his tolerance of Muslims shot at him 3 times, killing him at the age of 78.
