Well, I would say it was not for Gandhiji to save the revolutionaries. When Bhagat Singh & Co. jumped into the freedom stuggle, they already knew the consequences. In fact, they voluntarily pledged to give their lives away in the quest for freedom.Their methods were not as non-violent as Gandhiji. Even then, what is known to us, is that Gandhiji did try to negotiate with the British to commute their death sentences. He did not succeed though, maybe because the price put up by the British was too high. If the British were demanding an end to the freedom movement initiated by Gandhiji in exchange for the lives of the prisoners, probably He found it appropriate not to bend to this 'blackmail' and continue with his approach of Non-violence, because in the end it was Gandhian approach of truth and non-violence which won us freedom. Thanks for putting up this question.
This is in reference to the gandhi irwin pact which ended the civil disobedience movement in 1930. While there was general public opinion that gandhiji should ve negotiated commuting bhagat singh's death sentence with lord irwin. When the MOU of their meeting came out, nothing of that sort could find place in it. Gandhiji negotiated with lord Irvin on points such as salt law, trade barriers etc. But what happened behind closed doors, is something both these men took to their graves with them. Whether gandhiji really tried hard to save bhagat singh and others now remains just a matter of speculation. Bhagat singh and others were hanged for the murder of Saunders in 1931. Whether gandhiji found it difficult to beg pardon for something as violent as murder, in front of the viceroy, or he tried to do so but failed, no one knows. Even if gandhiji had put forward such a condition, had the viceroy granted it? is of course up to each one of us to judge.
they acted in violence
