The Freedom Fighters of India were individuals who fought for freedom and actively participating in our national movement in India to get rid of all the colonies established in India, in the name of trade and for other purposes.
There were many types of people who settled in India like Dutch, Portuguese, English, French, Turkish and many others.
The main problem was with the British started trading and after some time saw the opportunity and founded the East India Company.
They had the power to rule in India under the charter granted by Queen Elizabeth. They treated the Indians as British slaves for a long period of time for centuries.
Our Indian freedom fighters opposed this and fought against them. There are many of our great national leaders in India who have been neglected with the masses, we should be proud of our national leaders of India, salute them!
Mahatma Gandhi is the father of our nation who stood strong and achieved freedom by following his 2 big weapons “Truth and Non-Violence”, who have taken active participation in the national movement.
With his practice of the law, he took the responsibility to act peacefully against the British.
There were only a few national leaders who got attention in the freedom movement, so we tried to cover as many people who have contributed or sacrificed their lives for us who have been neglected to appear on the frontier.
