The power of peace and non-violence are universally felt. Why did Gandhiji said so? cbse-history-class-12

On 5 Apri11930, Mahatma Gandhi spoke at Dandi :
When I left Sabarmati with my companions for this seaside hamlet of Dandi, I was not
certain in my mind that we would be allowed to reach this place. Even while I was at
Sabarmati there was a rumour that I might be arrested. I had thought that the Government
might perhaps let my party come as far as Dandi, but not me certainly. If someone says that
this betrays imperfect faith on my part, I shall not deny the charge. That I have reached here
is in no small measure due to the power of peace and non-violence: that power is
universally felt. The Government may, if it wishes, congratulate itself on acting as it has
done, for it could have arrested every one of us. In saying that it did not have the courage to
arrest this army of peace, we praise it. It felt ashamed to arrest such an army. He is a
civilised man who feels ashamed to do anything which his neighbours would disapprove.
The Government deserves to be congratulated on not arresting us, even if it desisted only
from fear of world opinion. Tomorrow we shall break the salt tax law. Whether the
Government will tolerate that is a different question. It may not tolerate it, but it deserves
congratulations on the patience and forbearance it has displayed in regard to this party...
What if I and all the eminent leaders in Gujarat and in the rest of the country are arrested?
This movement is based on the faith that when a whole nation is roused and on the march
no leader is necessary.

Gandhi started the Dandi March to break the Salt Laws and create awareness among
the masses related to the exploitative salt laws. He also wanted to arouse the nationalist
sentiments among the people.
The Salt March was notable for the following reasons:
a. It brought Gandhi into the limelight. The March was widely covered by the American and
European press.
b. It was the first nationalist activity in which women participated in large numbers.
c. The movement also challenged the British and gave them the warning that the British rule
would not last forever in India.
Gandhi said so because he was able to bring the Indian National Movement into the
limelight of the world because of his policies of peace and non-violence.
