“ The essence of all religion is one. Only their approaches are different” Mahatma Gandhi Dalai Lama “ Whether a person follows any religion or not is unimportant, he must have a warm heart which is much more important than Buddhahood” Albert Einstein “ True religion is real living, living with all one’s soul, with all one’s goodness and righteousness”
The recent events in Mumbai and frequent attacks by terrorists across the country has made it imperative that the citizens of Mysore should join as a non political and non religious organization irrespective of their faith, to oneness as fellow human beings. Mysore citizens need to find out action items and organization needed to implement this to provide a safe Mysore. The seminar will address this need of allowing citizens to draw up and implement the action plan to actively build a safe Mysore and also in the long run allow all faiths to come together at cultural, social and spiritual levels.

Terrorism is a mere weapon in the arsenal of conflict. It bears no face. The scare-mongering tool follows no faith and is an outcome of ignorance and narrow thoughts leading to religious fundamentalists.
Surviving terrorist has written a letter to his mother expressing remorse for his actions. In the letter he said that he should have followed the advice of elders in his village instead of those who indoctrinated him to be a terrorist. He has asked his parents to tell youngsters in his village not to fall prey to indoctrination. A villager, who was not named for sake of his protection, said "We know that boy (caught in Mumbai) is from Faridkot," the villager told an Observer reporter in Faridkot. "We knew from the first night (of the attack). They brainwash our youth about jihad, there are people who do it in this village. It is so wrong," he added.
Root Cause of Terrorism - Religious Fundamentalism What is the Solution? The Leaders/Citizens can save this planet from further destruction. Instead of assuming a passive role and being just observant, the peace loving Leaders/Citizens and common people of the religious community should talk to the religious fanatics of their community. They should let them know that by causing terrorism, they are only insulting their God. They will never reach Heaven by taking the lives of children . They should visit the places where young children are being brainwashed given training to become terrorists diffuse and bring them to the mainstream.
In All isms of the world There is no room for Terrorism
We are Indians First Hindus,MuslimsChristians,Sikhs,Jains……..Next It is OUR Country put to jeopardy by Terrorism Raise above Religion and be united and be tough to fight Terrorism
