On that day of 1947, he raised the Indian national flag over the Lahori Gate at the Red Fort in Delhi.

History And Importance Of August 15:-
The British rule in India started with the victory of East India Company at the Battle of Plassey in 1757. It slowly started gaining control over undivided India and controlled the country for the century. Until the Indian Mutiny in 1857, the British crown rule never came to India. However, the momentum for Independence came only during World War I.
Behind the 15th of August, 1947, celebration of Independence, there lies a tremendously violent and chaotic history of intense rebellions, battles, and movements carried out by thousands of zealous Indian independence warriors, top freedom fighters of India. All of India's independence warriors battled, suffered, and often gave their lives to liberate India from British domination.
This Independence Day, let's remember the freedom fighters who dedicated their lives to the freedom struggle.

Mahatma Gandhi, who advocated the non-violence, started many movements for freedom such as Non-cooperation and Civil Disobedience movement. The Labour Government had decided to end the rule in India due to capital loss during World War II. The British Government announced that India will be free by June 1948, however, it was pushed early because of the violence between Hindus and Muslims particularly in Punjab and Bengal. The British declared Independence in August 1947 with the partition of India.
Facts about indian independence:-
Act 1947 With the announcement of Independence in February 1947, the demand started for a separate country for Muslims. The massive agitation and violence between Muslims and Hindus led the British Government to push the Independence date forward. On June 3, 1947, the British declared that the Constitution framed by the Indian Constituent Assembly formed in 1946 will not apply to those parts which were not willing to accept. The Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten, came with the partition plan popularly called as 'Mountbatten Plan. Both the Congress and the Muslim league accepted for the partition. Indian Independence Act 1947 was enacted and the Constituent Assembly, which was set up in 1946, became the Parliament of Indian Dominion.
