The International Day of Non-Violence is observed on 2 October, the birthday of 
Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement and pioneer of the 
philosophy and strategy of non-violence.

According to United Nations General Assembly resolution 
A/RES/61/271<> of 15 June 2007, which established 
the commemoration, the International Day is an occasion to "disseminate the 
message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness". The 
resolution reaffirms "the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence" 
and the desire "to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and 

Peace. Tolerance. Non-violence. These are the values Mahatma Gandhi stood for. 
On The International Day of Non-Violence which also marks Mahatma Gandhi’s 
birthday, let’s honour Gandhi’s values & struggle for universal peace all 
around the world.

Best wishes
