Mahatma Gandhi’s Birthday is International Non-Violence Day

Mahatma Gandhi’s Birthday is International Non-Violence Day

It is indeed a matter of pride for India that Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday has been declared as Global Non-Violence Day by UN. The ?resolution? received a co-sponsorship of 142 countries and was passed with unanimity in the United Nation General Assembly.

TAKING A CUE from man who used the power of non-violence to bring about fundamental change at all levels, United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution mooted by India to declare birthday of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi as Global Non-Violence day.

The resolution under ‘culture of peace’ segment received a co-sponsorship of 142 countries and was passed with unanimity in the United Nation General Assembly. October 2, which is the 275th day of the year (276th in leap years) in the calendar, and birthday of ‘Father of India’ who was born on the day in year 1869 now would be marked as World Non-violence Day globally.

The resolution calls upon all member states, the UN system, regional and non-governmental organisations to commemorate October 2 in ’an appropriate manner and disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness.’ The unanimous adoption of the resolution in the assembly is a triumph of India’s diplomacy as New Delhi launched a spirited campaign to mobilize support of member states after the Satyagraha Conference, titled ’Peace, Non-Violence and Empowerment’, early this year. Prior to the same Lage Raho Munnabhai was specially screened at UN to consider the acclaim. Welcoming the UN resolution declaring Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday as the International Day of Non-Violence, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh while speaking to media described it as ’a proud moment for India’. It indeed is recognition of India.

World always remembered him as the one who taught how to use the power of non-violence and this day will help us reiterate our commitment to the same. At this moment I would like to quote from Gandhi Foundation website which states that ‘Gandhi not only played a major role in India achieving its independence but taught a philosophy which has universal applicability. The core of that philosophy is the search for truth through non-violence (ahinsa). Gandhi taught respect for animals as well as humans, a non-exploitative relationship to the environment, the elimination of poverty, the limitation of personal wealth and possessions, and non-violence applied at all levels from the interpersonal to relationships between states.’
