  1. The Rowlatt Act gave enormous powers to the government to repress political activities and allowed detention of political prisoners without trial for two years. Indians reacted against this unreasonable act Gandhiji wanted a non-violent civil disobedience against the unjust law and decided to start a hartal on 6th April 1919.Rallies were organised in various cities. People organised hartals all over the country in protest of the Rowlatt Act and the shops were shut down. Workers went on strike in railway workshops.
