New Delhi, peace

Having been deeply involved in peace-building efforts in both the past and the present, India is the proud birthplace of many great peace advocates throughout history. Yet there are still unresolved conflicts internally, as well as with the states it shares borders with, blocking its passage to fully achieving peace. Therefore, individuals and communities wanted to fix this current status quo in peace-building from the grass-roots level.

In response, they organized several peace walks and educational activities for Talk and Walk to Prevent Violent Extremismin New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Hyderabad, India. Globally, a wide array of peace-promoting events were held as part of the 4th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace. These peace-promoting events in the month of May could not have had more critical timing as global acts of terrorism and violent extremism continued to haunt citizens on a daily basis.

Peace LctureAuthorities at the Indian Heights School had a determined and passionate mind and interest in encouraging their students to become active proponents of peace. After putting in considerable thought and effort, the principal and teachers organized the Peace Awakening Event in collaboration with HWPL staff. Dr. Farida Khanam, a professor at the Jamia Millia Islamia University Center for Peace and Spirituality, was invited to be the main speaker for this special occasion

This special lecture and discussion aimed to go beyond superficial topics and boundaries. Like the rest of informed citizens, students at Indian Heights School were all aware that violent extremism in the form of terrorist attacks, racial discriminations hatred and others take place globally on a daily basis.

Also, as a participant at the HWPL WARP Peace Office, Dr. Farida Khanam made sure to challenge the bright students of Indian Heights School to think about what drives these perpetuators and terrorists to commit such atrocious and unjustifiable actions.

People commit violence due to ideas they have been taught.” said, Dr. Khanam.
“These wrong, corrupted leaders teach young men, if they kill others, throw bomb, or commit suicide bombing, they will go to heaven or paradise, but it is wrong. It is not the teaching of any scriptures in religion”.
Religion, which should have been a source of hope and peace, is instead utilized by a small group of religious leaders to shape and drive people to take extreme measures and hurt others. Shedding a light into the reality we face today, Dr. Khanam and students saw the importance of instilling ideas centered on peace instead of violence. Indeed, spreading a culture of peace to prevail over the culture of violence requires everyone to “make peace on earth together regardless of any race, nation, religion, and culture”.

What price can compensate for the loss of a life? … In whatever way you can, we ask that you work to further the cause of world peace and restoration, making it a reality in your direct environments.”

Also at Mumbai metropolitan majistrate court, Samsara school, Great Valley School, Modern School Noida, Mand Kaushalya Global the Complete School were gathered over 10,000 supportive signatures with the participation of a number of organizations.

On 25th May, 300,000 people gathered simultaneously in hundreds of cities including Seoul, New York City, Sydney, and Shanghai for the 3rd Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace: Legislate Peace Campaign hosted by HWPL in their respective time zones.

Filled with vibrant people yearning for peace, the event at the World Peace Gate in Seoul Olympic Park especially captured the eyes of many. This year’s commemoration highlighted the global peace advocacy movement, Legislate Peace Campaign, recently launched to bring all wars to an end by establishing an enforceable law compatible with the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).

The DPCW is unique in that it includes provisions aimed at resolving conflicts, reducing war potential, repurposing weapons to benefit humanity and inviting all citizens to participate in the active promotion of a lasting culture of peace.

The Legislate Peace Campaign calls on global citizens to unite as one to voice their positive demand for peace by adding their signatures. According to HWPL, as of May 25th, the collected signatures have exceeded 500,000 from 154 countries in less than two months and many heads of state have written official letters of support for the DPCW. The number of signatures is expected to reach 2,000,000 by the end of this year.

“Today, marking the 3rd anniversary, at this very moment, our family of peace must be having their eyes and ears in this place…What we are ought to leave to our future generations is the common good of mankind, peace. There is no greater legacy than peace and it is not achieved by one person. Therefore, we all must become messengers of peace,” said Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL in his commemorative address.

Since the proclamation of the Declaration of World Peace on 25th May 2013, HWPL has proposed its international law initiative to draft a legally binding instrument for all States to adopt that ultimately promotes a culture of peace and ceases all wars through the DPCW. A Korean youth leader said at an interview, “The organization has already made great progress in achieving its peace initiatives. It’s exciting to see what the next work will be.”

Especially, at these days events, there were booths installed to fund-raise for countries which were prone to severe natural disasters. HWPL, IWPG, IPYG, and citizens were continuously putting hands together to help those who are suffering from Sri Lanka flood and a severe outcome caused by earthquakes in Ecuador that happened recently.

It has pioneered various peace activities including the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Office, as well as held peace education seminars, peace walks, and peace forums with the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) and International Peace Youth Group (IPYG).
