    Solution:

    Concept:
    The above statement is false.
    British lawmakers passed the Rowlatt Act to tighten their grip on the general populace. It was passed in 1919, and Mahatma Gandhi launched a hartal known as the Rowlatt Satyagraha to repeal it. The Sir Sidney Rowlatt-led Sedition Committee had recommended that this law be passed. It gave British police officers significant authority to suppress Indian political activity. The situation deteriorated dramatically during such hartal strikes and demonstrations, particularly in Punjab, which caused the Jallianwala massacre. Famous people opposed to this action, including Madan Mohan Malviya and Muhammad Ali Jinnah, resigned from the Imperial Legislative Council. Many Indians participated in the strike by stopping their businesses.
    The correct statement would be Mahatma Gandhi initiated a strike in 1919.
