The United Nations’ International Day of Non-Violence is a global observance that seeks to promote the vital quality of non-violence. It is annually held on  October 2 coinciding with the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, revered throughout the world for his wisdom, fight for freedom and his deep spiritual understanding.

Gandhi is mostly remembered for his philosophy of Ahimsa, which encourages the use of ‘non-violence’ as a tool for peaceful resolution of differences.

The UN General Assembly came up with a resolution in 2007 to establish the International Day of Non-Violence aimed at spreading the message of peace as advocated by the legendary leader.
