    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The Rowlatt Act was passed hurriedly through the Imperial Legislative Council despite opposition from Indian members. It gave the government autocratic powers to repress political activities besides allowing it to detain political prisoners without a trial, for two years. The Indian were outraged by this act as it was clearly undemocratic and oppressive, and hurt national sentiments and dignity.

He argued that it was not right to frame drastic legislation for the whole of India because political crimes occurred in a few places. There was a rare unanimity among Indian leaders on opposition of the Rowlatt Bills. It lead to a wave of popular indignation.The government resorted to repressive measures
