The predominance of nonviolence in the apartheid struggle was crucial in many ways.
Sixty-five years ago on Jan. 30, three bullets ended the life of the greatest pacifist of the modern era: Mohandas Karamchand “Mahatma” Gandhi.
He was a guest of a great Pashtun pacifist, whose interpretation of Islam starkly contrasts with that of bin Laden.
It’s Mahatma Gandhi’s 140th birthday on Oct. 2, and his spirit of nonviolence lives on around the world, including in Muslim societies.
Oct. 2 marks the second International Day of Nonviolence, commemorating the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi.
We have a lot to learn from Gandhi on this day.
