‘Non-cooperation’ is one of the main weapons in the armoury of Satyagraha. But at the same time, it should not be forgotten that it is after all only a means to secure the cooperation of the opponent consistently with truth and justice. The essence of non-violence technique is that it seeks to liquidate antagonisms but not the antagonists themselves. Non-Cooperation is essentially a non-violent method of creating public opinion against an evil. “Non-Cooperation is a protect against an unwitting and unwilling participation in evil.” “It is an attempt to cooperate with a method or system that is shielding the evil.” “Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as co operation with good,” says Gandhiji.
