I do not believe in any other God except the one who resides in the hearts of millions and crores of dumb people. They do not know his existence, I know that by serving these lakhs and crores, I worship the God who is truth or that truth which is God. These great thoughts belong to none other than the great man whom the nation knows as the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. From the point of view of personality, Gandhiji was a politician, philosopher, reformer, economics and revolutionary. He used to say, we have to get freedom not by violence but by non-violence. He was against violence. He is also called the priest of non-violence. This was the reason why poet Pradeep ji had written – gave us freedom without khadga without shield, sabarmati ke sant tune kar diya kamal. Mahatma Gandhi had applied non-violence as a broad ideology in his life. According to Gandhi's philosophy, the priest of non-violence will be one who does not want the destruction of even the smallest animal and tries to save it as much as possible. In fact, we do not hurt anyone physically and mentally and do not hurt anyone's feelings, this was the basic mantra of Mahatma Gandhi's non-violence. which is relevant in the present circumstances. 

The ideology of communism in ancient India was based on the foundation of non-violence. The idea of ​​bringing equality in the society through violence was never declared in Indian culture. Indian culture was irrigated with the traditions of renunciation, tolerance, peace and non-violence and here non-violence was considered as the ultimate religion. International peacekeeping is based on the basic anti-violent principles of the military. In fact, small countries can be saved from the dominant domination of big countries only by following a non-violent policy. Diplomacy and political maneuvering have no place in non-violent policy. In following the principles of non-violence it is desirable to observe the purity of the means. India China border dispute still remains because China wants to solve this problem with its diplomacy. If there is doubt against the other side, then it becomes our duty to be inclined towards self-defense and to protest injustice. In the last years, the role of non-violence in such situations will be only that the fight is molded as far as possible. But we have to protect the borders at all costs. Non-violence should make us cowardly, never detestable. Freed from truth, love and compassion, we should move forward for the welfare of mankind, this ideology became the basis of our non-violence philosophy. The world of the present era considers itself proud by moving towards human brute civilization. We have the example of North Korea, where the dictator prides himself in threatening war by increasing nuclear power. In the present era, human beings are eagerly eager to move towards animal civilization. Where the terrorist strong is considered to have the right to live and the dominant nation considers it to be a birth right to exploit the other economically and politically. In such circumstances, Gandhiji's policy of non-violence shows the path like a beacon.

Clearly, the holy land of India, which has given the message of non-violence, is going through a period of disruptive change. Even terrorism, Naxalism, narrow communalism, caste selfishness remain a hindrance in the development of the country. The atmosphere of violence, where communal tension helps in increasing caste hatred, the same violent incidents remain a great hindrance in the progress of the country. Chhattisgarh's Naxal-affected area in India is a vivid example of this in front of us, where the incidents of ambushing the security personnel to death sometimes come in front of us. Stone pelting on security forces during searches in Kashmir is evidence of violent incidents.

In fact, the life of that person will be said to be socially useful, who work keeping in mind the happiness and sorrow of others. In non-violence is hidden a great strength, an exemplary spirit of restraint, patience and tolerance. Non-violence makes us fearless and humble, not cowardly. Mahatma Gandhi was courageous and fearless. He always opposed violent incidents. For Mahatma Gandhi, there was no service greater than charity and no religion greater than humanity. But it was our misfortune that on 30 January 1948, Nathuram Godse shot and killed Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation. When Gandhiji was shot, the last words that came out of his mouth were 'O Ram'. Mahatma Gandhi may not be alive among us today, but when Gandhiji was shot, the last words to come out of his mouth were 'Ram' . The nation salutes him wholeheartedly.
