What methods of fighting colonialism in India brought, in your opinion, more real results – violent or peaceful?

At the same time, the introduction of elements of British politics and culture, the bourgeois way of life gradually led to the emergence of a national bourgeoisie and intelligentsia in India. At the end of 1885, the bourgeois party of the Indian National Congress (INC) was created in Bombay (modern Mumbai). Its main slogan was peaceful opposition to the colonial regime. Propaganda and audacious non-violent actions of the INC (boycott of British goods, demonstrative wearing of national clothes, etc.) gradually increased the ranks of the party’s supporters. The leader of the radical wing of the INC, lawyer Bal Gandhar Tilak, was especially popular among the population. He called for a decisive open struggle against the British.
At the next Congress of the INC (December 1907), the party split into moderates and radicals. The radical leaders, including Tilak, soon found themselves in prison. But this sparked a massive protest in the country. The police and British troops repressed demonstrations and strikes more than once by force. In response to this, terrorist groups (outside the INC) began to form, which made attempts on the most hated local and British officials.
