Pakistanis have joined the World Interfaith Harmony Week to support the cause of interreligious peace and harmony.

World Interfaith Harmony Week that was declared by the UN’s General Assembly in 2010 is celebrated all over the world to voice for the interreligious dialogues and to endorse peace among all the human beings regardless of their religious affiliations.

The general assembly urges all the member countries to voluntarily preach the message of interfaith harmony and goodwill through the mosques, churches, temples, synagogues and other places of worship during this week.

In a press talk at the Nisar Usmani Auditorium of the Lahore Press Club, leaders of National Council for Interfaith Peace & Harmony asked everyone out there to one another without any religious, sectarian or ethnic discrimination for the sake of an economically stronger and prosperous Pakistan.

Living Together Movement

National Council’s leaders Javaid William, Dr Majeed Abel, Dr Masood Ahmad, Mufti Ashiq Hussain, Prof Kalyan Sing Kalyan, Allama Zubair Ahmad Virk, and other leaders told the journalists about the Living Together Movement which is a civic initiative structured to help stop and resolve ethnic, racial and religious conflicts through dialogue.

They informed the journalists that the members of the Living Together Movement are peace-driven fellows who take the humanity above all and try to make peace among different races, ethnicities, religions, political parties, genders, generations and nationalities to spread the message of respect, tolerance, acceptance, understanding and harmony.

They requested all the religions and sects to cooperate with one another to spread peace, and to promote the values of coexistence in the society. They urged all the citizens to adopt compassion, respect and tolerance to all the religions and to teach one another that any explanation of the scriptures that invites violence or hatred is illegitimate.

“We have to ensure that young people are given accurate and respectful information about other traditions, religions and cultures,” they said. “We have to end duality and adopt values from different religions so that we may be able to create an atmosphere where everyone might have religious freedom,” they said, adding the religion should be utilized to end differences among the people.

They also said that they were all set to gather women at a platform to create awareness about peace and harmony and to teach them how to develop a family unit where peace and harmony, respect and acceptance of opinions become important to yield positive changes in the society. They asked the leaders of all the religions to add the message of peace and social harmony, brotherhood, acceptance and coexistence in their prayer sessions.

The Interfaith Harmony Week appreciates all those events or gatherings which connect people in a global wave of understanding, respect, and action. The National Council for Interfaith Peace & Harmony believes that observing the week and helping individuals to arrange such events is also their mission.
