It is because in himalaya blunder gandhiji toured the lenght and breadth of the country urging people to be non vionlent soldiers. he made it clear that there was no place for hatred in this movement.
Gandhiji was stunned when he heard the news. "No provocation can possibly justify brutal murder of men who had been rendered defenseless and who had virtually thrown themselves on the mercy of the mob," said Gandhiji. He now described his call for non-co-operation as a Himalayan blunder. He called off the civil disobedience campaign in Bardoli and announced the withdrawal of the countrywide non-co-operation movement.
