October 2: International Day of Non-Violence

The International Day of Non-Violence was observed on 2 October 2015 across the world. It was celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, a pioneer of the philosophy and strategy of non-violence.

On this occasion, governmental and nongovernmental organizations conducted awareness activities and special talks on the significance of Non-violence as a political as well as a social practice.

The International Day of Non-Violence was created by the United Nations by a resolution of the General Assembly on 15 June 2007.

The resolution was aimed at reaffirming the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence and the desire to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and non-violence.

The creation of the day has much significance for India, as it was at the frontrunner in the adoption of the resolution that was co-sponsored by 140 member-countries in the United Nations.
