What is Ahimsa? A teenager’s exploration https://indianexpress.com/article/opinion/what-is-ahimsa-a-teenagers-exploration-7216071/
It is a broad concept, and one which can address the growing polarisation in the world today.
The power of non-violence has been asserted repeatedly over the last 74 years across the world. The most enduring symbol of the anti-CAA protests remains the Shaheen Bagh sit-in, where hundreds of people, led by the brave women of Delhi, protested peacefully for 101 days; where art, creativity and ahimsa were the languages of opposition. On the other side of the world, pictures of candlelit Black Lives Matter protests became a powerful symbol of resistance in the face of abject brutality, and many American cities now house BLM murals.
But what is ahimsa? Many might plainly say “not being violent”. Others may argue it is “Respecting all living beings”. Some may take it to the next level, where you’ll hear “Being truthful to oneself and not causing harm to anyone”. Every time you ask the question, you will receive a different and more developed answer, because the most significant aspect of ahimsa is that it is an evolving discipline.
With the exploration of ahimsa expanding, new interpretations are coming to light and adding to the myriad of opinions that make it such a unique, multifaceted concept.
Most Hindu Religious Leaders Are Worried By Anti-Muslim Hate, But Silent For Fear of Hindutva Groups The Wire Apr 27, 2023 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HA0Tm92s3w
The America-based organization Hindus for Human Rights, which has just completed what it calls a prema yatra “searching for hindu religious leaders who are concerned about the state of affairs in India today”, has concluded that the majority of the hindu religious leaders they met are concerned about the deteriorating state of hindu-muslim relations and the way muslims are often treated but are scared to speak out because of their fear of the response from hindu nationalist groups. The yatra was conducted in February-March this year and travelled across 9 states, visiting 12 cities and several villages and met nearly 30 hindu religious leaders. The organization said these are significant and important leaders who have considerable influence in their local communities. The yatra also visited major pilgrimage sites like Haridwar, Varanasi and Ayodhya as well as important metropolises such as Delhi, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram. In a North-South sense it was a pan-India yatra though not necessarily so in an East-West sense.
