He met with Gandhi and learned about nonviolent protests and the philosophy of nonviolence. When he came home that is what he preached and did in the civil rights movement.

Being a deep believer in non-violence and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. came over to India to study the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. He met the then Prime Minister of India, Pdt. Jawaharlal Nehru and visited the Gandhi Museum in Mumbai.

The decision of Dr. King to visit India came after attacks were made on his life for the work he did to end discrimination against the African Americans in USA.
