On August 22nd, the United Nations observes the International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief. This day aims to raise awareness about the persecution and violence faced by individuals and communities due to their religion or belief system. It highlights the importance of promoting and protecting religious freedom as a fundamental human right.

On this day, the United Nations, along with various organizations and civil society groups, may conduct events, conferences, and campaigns to draw attention to this issue and advocate for tolerance, understanding, and respect for religious diversity. These activities serve as an opportunity to remember the victims of religiously motivated violence and promote discussions on how to prevent future acts of religious persecution.
