Statement from Inter-Faith Iftaar – Dialogue & Dinner
- The gathering that consisted of eminent citizens of India and Hyderabad felt unanimously that it is the need of the hour to converge steadfastly on common causes with truth, non-violence, tolerance, peace, justice as the epicenters to weave our societal bond.
- Such inter-faith discourses focused on societal wellbeing and happiness, shall be held frequently to generate impetus for thought-processes among all-age groups and all walks of society for a thoughtful, humane and happy society.
- Such a vibrant and conscious society would not become victim of vote-bank politics. Such society’s eternal vigilance would usher in a more responsive, transparent and accountable government that would have the common peoples’ issues as a top priority ,and that would still listen to peoples’ voice even after forming the government…a government that would be concerned about building a good society.
