In a world with conflict and discord, the mission towards promoting peace, tolerance and harmony is to reflect on the spirituality by implementing moral, ethical values with a deep spiritual foundation
After the grand success of the annual International Sufi Festival in Ajmer and Noida, Gulsha Begum has initiated the Global Peace Mission. A step further towards the mission of peace and harmony.
Since Ajmer is been the most significant point spiritually and politically in India it is chosen as the take off point. A SERIES of events is lined up for this year in various states.There could, therefore be no other suitable place to begin a global mission and to pilot the peace movement worldwide. In short, a ideal center from every point of view to conduct the toughest encounters between the forces of materialism and spiritualism the world has ever witnessed without recourse to any kind of armed conflict, pressure or constraint.
With more insecurity locally and nationally and increasing growing social tension and conflict, environmental crises which are looming on the horizon more and more individuals are more interested to propagate peace on the world forum when there is a immediate challenge breeding within their own democratic country. If each of us aim at simply conversing or presiding on international forums how can peace be achieved nationally or locally .
All citizens of democratic countries have an obligation to first work within their countries which require urgent support towards peace-oriented initiatives. Humanity’s first line of defence is to safeguard our own collective security. When our own internal security is rifled how do we set an example on the Global Forum.
Unless we as a team dedicate to work aggressively to achieve peace within our democratic country we together as a nation will set a example globally on our culture and values.
Conflict, violence, arms and internal strife are the most serious obstacles to development and economic growth, and are also the cause and the consequence of social injustice. It is against this background that we have to discuss new forms of partnership collectively rise to the challenges posed by violence, complex emergencies and conflicts.
