Gandhi Jayanti to be celebrated on 2nd October in Luxembourg

Published Tuesday September 29 2015

October 2 commemorates Gandhi Jayanti, the birthday of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who was born in 1869 and is credited with freeing India from British Rule through non-violent actions. 

On June 15, 2007, The United Nations General Assembly announced that October 2 will be celebrated around the world as the International Day of Non-Violence. 

Both occasions will be marked in Luxembourg with a short ceremony by the Gandhi statue in Luxembourg City's Municipal Park opposite the Luxembourg City Synagogue on Avenue Monterey. It begins at 6pm.
