During the 1880s, Birsa closely witnessed the Sardari Larai movement in the region, which demanded the restoration of tribal rights through non-violent methods like sending petitions to the Raj. However, the oppressive colonial regime paid no heed to these demands. The feudal setup intensified the forced labour (veth bigari) in the forested tribal areas. he was captured by British police and lodged in jail, where he died in captivity on June 9, 1900. But Bhagwan Birsa Munda’s spirited struggle did not go in vain. It compelled the British to take cognisance of the plight and exploitation of tribals, and bring in the Chhota Nagpur Tenancy Act of 1908 for their protection. This Act restricted the transfer of tribal land to non-tribals, giving Adivasis a huge relief and became a landmark legislation for the protection of tribal rights. भगवान बिरसा मुंडा के जन्मदिवस को जनजातीय गौरव दिवस के रूप में मनाया जा रहा है। अपने युवा वर्षों में उन्हें देखा कि सरदारी लड़ाई नामक एक मुहिम में अहिंसा द्वारा एक ब्रिटिश हुकूमत को ये मनाने की कोशिश हो रही थी की आदिवासी जमीन अधिकारों की रक्षा हो, साहूकारों का शोषण बंद हो लेकिन कोई नतीजा न निकलने पर क्रांतिकारी रवैया अपनाना पड़ा।
