Speaking exclusively to IANS, Indresh Kumar answered the following Questions….
If we talk about terrorism, how we can end terrorism from the country which is came down in graph but yet seen in many places ?
Terrorism is the enemy of peace, development, harmony and humanity. Bombs, ammo, shells, bullets or stones are not the solution to any problem. He said that there is no place for anti-social things like terrorism, Maoism, Naxalism in any civilized society, so everyone should unite and strongly oppose it. All the countries present strongly welcomed the words of the union leader and promised to play their role in it. The delegates said that they will not allow it to flourish in their countries and also appeal to the world that all countries should unite against terrorism.
Is religion becoming an issue in harmony ?
It was also agreed in the seminar that criticizing religion, scriptures, religious places, religious importance, religious great men i.e. goddesses, deities, prophets, prophets… creates violence and anarchy which is condemnable. That’s why all religions should follow their own religion and should not disrespect other religions, thus keeping the path of peace, unity, brotherhood and harmony.
Conversion is becoming an issue in society that is also rising hatred for one community, what is your stand on it?
The Chief Patron of Forum for Awareness of National Security (FANS) said that it is necessary to stop religious conversions for world peace and development. Riot-free humanity and a proud nation can be made from this. Appreciating this statement of the union leader, the representatives of all the countries present unitedly protested against the conversion and believed that religious frenzy, molestation and conversion is the path of unrighteousness and should be strictly banned.
We heard in seminar peace and harmony can not be established with India, please elaborate?
It was discussed in the seminar that the path of world peace and progress passes through Asia and peace and harmony cannot be established in the world without India. All the countries also approved the proposal that all the present countries should increase cooperation and coordination among themselves. Indresh Kumar said that this would increase mutual dialogue, art, education, literature, culture and business. It was also agreed that in addition to the air route, mutual unity and integrity should be promoted through road and sea routes.
Seminar also mention about Digital word…
Today is the era of digital, things get expanded in a second. In such a situation, it is also important that for the purpose of increasing dialogue, cooperation and trade at a rapid pace, a lot of work should be done on digital powers to sweeten the relations of the countries participating in the program.
At the end of the seminar, ambassadors, high commissioners, representatives and intellectuals of all the countries present with lit candles chanted in one voice, “Andhakar Mitayenge, Prakash Layenge”. Not hatred, riot, war but peace, harmony, brotherhood and development”.
