Motilal Nehru Biography

Motilal Nehru (created May 6, 1861) was a successful Brahman attorney who shunned politics until 1907 when he presided over a seminar on Indian autonomy. The 1919 Amritsar massacre spurred him to join Mahatma Gandhi’s co-operation movement and cofound the Swaraj Party. Nehru was imprisoned during the 1930 Salt March and expired shortly after. His son Jawaharlal became India’s first prime minister.
