Gandhiji fasted because of communal riots in Naukhali (West Bengal) due to the partition of the country. He vowed that he will not eat unless the killings stopped. People were moved by his action and this was one major force in stopping the massacre going on.
Hope this helps.
: I am having troubles finding resources on gandhi's last fast at delhi (jan 13-18 1948). If anyone knows any websites/books please email or post em. Thanx.
