    Gandhi, as Maureen Swan has demonstrated, was not the initiator of Indian political activity in Natal and South Africa. Indian traders and middle classes had already formed associations to represent their interests before Gandhi arrived in South Africa.

    It was around 1904 that Gandhi began to think about his 'duty' to the wider community, and not just to his clients, although Swan argues that at that time Gandhi was still thinking about the wider middle classes, and not indentured labourers or non-Indians. She writes: 'By 1904, however, he had begun to develop the humanistic, universalist political philosophy out of which passive resistance grew. But Gandhi's politics lagged behind his ideology. The first passive resistance campaign was started in Johannesburg in 1907 with, and for, the wealthy South African Indian merchants whom he had so long represented.'

    D. The South African government repealed a law discriminating against Indians.

    Explanation:

    Mahatma Gandhi was able to witness firsthand, during his stay in South Africa, the discrimination suffered by the Indians by white people, who even once tried to lynch him, later, in 1906, the South African government of Transvaal, in a fight against immigration of Asian origin, he issued a law that forced all Indians residing in his country to register through a census, which, given the different forms of discrimination, could mean a way to locate and attack them more easily, Therefore Gandhi initiated a peaceful protest the following year that, although it caused from arrests to executions for the Indian people, influenced the government to reverse the law.
