Dr. L.M. Singhvi 'Interfaith Imperatives' May 2007

  3. 3. Moses Committee Room, House of Lords
  4. 4. <ul><li>Dr. L. M. Singhvi: </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Today religion is often seen as a potent but negative force. As Lord Parekh said, we must not just look for commonalities between religions but for ways in which we can aid the process of co-existing well. In the declaration of UNESCO it states that ‘War begins in the minds of men’ – I say that peace begins in the minds of men, women and children. </li></ul><ul><li>The Universal Peace Federation’s (UPF) work is all about this peace and it is my privilege to introduce this work to you. UPF is emphasizing that peace is too important to be left to diplomats and soldiers alone.’ </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>‘ There are other constituencies of peace which deal with our common future and human equality. The Universal Peace Federation is the forum to address these issues. The mission of religion is to reach the soul and heart of humanity. UPF promotes the culture of heart in the garden of diversity and is for intervention on a hundred fronts where humanity needs help. </li></ul><ul><li>Peace will not come unless civil society is at the forefront and pushing interfaith dialogue. It will not come through the establishment. Inter-religious work speaks of love of peace and the peace of shared love. There is so much we can do together and that we destroy in our separateness.’ </li></ul>
