Ahimsa was a term used to reffer : non- violence. This was raised by Mahatma Gandhi. In today's world ahimsa is not at all relevant because if the people infront us try to start up a war and if we keep silence then obviously loss is ours. For example : if pakistan starts a war against India and we Indians keep silence then one day they'll start making bigger wars...!!! When the britishers won the war and came into India without any weapon, for ruling, on that time they were just 3000 britishers, seeing their success the Indians started clapping, on that time Indians who clapped were more than 10 lakhs, If on the spot they would have started throwing stones on britishers instead of clapping then they would not have to face those bad days under british rule....!!!
