What was the aim of the Akali movement?

The aim of the Akali movement was to reduce and outright release the control of the Gurudwaras from the clergy that had become entrenched and powerful.  The movement led to the introduction of the Sikh Gurdwara Bill in 1925, which placed all the historical Sikh shrines in India under the control of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.

The Akali movement also took part in the Indian Independence movement and supported the Non-Cooperation movement of Mahatma Gandhi.
