This age of globalization needs more kind, peace workers and enlightened people in each faith who can examine their sacred writings and traditions and identify the aspects that can benefit all humanity as well as those that preserve each religion’s identity. The UN designated the first week of February every year as World Interfaith Harmony Week. We call on people of all faith to honor the universal peace in a way that encourages understanding, respect, and cooperation among people of all faiths for the well-being of our communities and peace in the world.
