Invoking Mahatma Gandhi's legacy, UN chief Ban Ki-moon said the world should recall his message of peace and non-violence at a time of increased sectarian violence and destruction of cultural sites, particularly in Iraq and Syria.
As the world grapples with "increased sectarian violence" and conflict, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged the international community to follow Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy of non-violence, saying the Indian leader proved that peaceful protests accomplished much more than military aggression.
With centuries of tradition
behind them, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama believes
young Indians should be playing a more active role in
preserving their ethos of non-violence and propagating it to
the outside world.
