An account of the momentous event in modern Indian history which made Mahatma Gandhi suspend the non-cooperation movement

On 4 February 1922, peasant volunteers who had enlisted in Gandhi’s newly launched people’s struggle against British rule turned violent and burned down a police station in ??Chauri Chaura’ killing twenty-three policemen. According to Shahid Amin, this dramatic occurrence simply had to be quickly forgotten as a stain upon the clean sheets of Gandhian non-violence. And so it was. ??Chauri Chaura’ was effectively blotted out of the grand narrative of Indian heroic nationalism, making a token appearance in ??authoritative’ textbooks.
