Why Did Itachi Kill The Uchiha

Simple Answer

Itachi killed Uchiha Clan to Defend Hidden Leaf from coup d’etat that Uchiha Clan had planned.
Another Reason is because Itachi wanted to save his Younger brother Sasuke.


Itachi Uchiha was a faithful & loyal member of Hidden Leaf Village. He was assigned to keep an eye on his own Uchiha Clan.

He loved his younger brother Sasuke Uchiha more than anyone.

Once, Uchiha Clan (Being Police Force of Hidden Leaf) did not help against Tailed beast attack.

Since then, Hidden Leaf Elders & Hokage decided to not let Uchiha get involved in Politics and Management of the Village.

Uchiha Clan felt that other clans and Management Agency (Government) of Hidden leaf didn’t welcome them in any matter of the Hidden Leaf Village.
