Satyagraha took the form of civil disobedience and non-co- operation with evil. Civil disobedience involved breaking a specific law if it was believed to be unjust, and then facing the consequences. The other element of Satyagraha, non-cooperation with evil, consisted of pulling out all support for an unjust system, such as the British rule of India.
