Details: The Abdullah case that had brought him to South Africa concluded in May 1894, and the Indian community organized a farewell party for Gandhi as he prepared to return to India.

He planned to assist Indians in opposing a bill to deny them the right to vote, a right then proposed to be an exclusive European right.
