October 2nd marks Non-Violence Day. The General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) created the date, in 2007, to encourage people to resolve their issues peacefully and always respecting others.
October 2 was chosen because it was the birthday of the Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi, who lived between 1869 and 1948 and was one of the main non-violence activists. In the struggle for independence in India (which was under the rule of the United Kingdom from 1858 to August 1947), he mobilized many people to protest peacefully, that is, without violence. One of the activist's actions, for example, was traveling from India to London, England, to ask the British for independence for his country.
Furthermore, when India became independent, it was separated into two territories: Pakistan (where Muslims went, which follow the Islamic religion) and India (the destination of the followers of Hinduism, which is currently the religion of most of the population Indian).
For _____________ the two peoples - who were in conflict because the Muslims of India had to flee to Pakistan and the Hindus who were in the country Muslims needed to go to India – Gandhi fasted (when a person goes for a certain period of time without eating) to draw the world's attention to the problem. This ended up uniting the two peoples, who decided to put their differences aside so that Gandhi would not suffer.
