The waves of Peace is beginning!!

The Key to end all wars: the First African 
WARP, World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Summit

Pretoria, South Africa – The world of today is passing through an environment full of violence, tension, injustices, discrimination, and human rights violations. Devastation and atrocities by misrepresented religions and ethnic groups have already taken a dominant position in various parts of the world especially developing countries, threatening the youths who deserve a peaceful life. In light of the religion-related terrorist attacks on young students in various countries in Africa: Nigeria (over 200 schoolgirls were kidnapped); Pakistan  (152 dead including 133 children); Kenyan college (at least 147 dead), in order to change and mitigate this widespread phenomenon, South African youths have gathered to combine their enthusiasm to defend the frontiers of peace and non-violence.

The first African World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit was held on March 30th through 31st, 2015 at the University of South Africa (UNISA), the largest university on the African continent whose notable alumni are Nobel Peace Prize Laureates such as Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, and F. W. de Klerk. The Summit was the African chapter of the WARP Summit which took place in Seoul, South Korea in September 2014 and was hosted by an international peace organization Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) together with its affiliates, International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) and International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG).

World Peace!
Also greatly supported by Department of Home Affairs of South Africa, the University of South Africa (UNISA), African Youth Union (AYU), National Interfaith Council of South Africa (NICSA), and Interfaith Action for Peace in Africa (IFAPA), approximately 1,500 people attended the two-day summit which brought together the world renowned chief justices, ambassadors, African royalties, political leaders, women and youth representatives particularly serving for the Southern African Development Community(SADC) regions to take a pragmatic approach toward peace building and discuss the outcomes of the 2014 WARP Summit in South Korea.

The leading South African religious leaders from various faiths such as Baha’ism, Christianity, Hare Krishna, Sikhism, Rastafari, Judaism, Islam, Karaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism came together to eradicate the religious misunderstandings through this opportunity and move forward to peace and unity.

Chairman of HWPL, Mr. Man Hee Lee spoke about the role of youth in the cessation of wars: “The ones to protect the youth are the youth themselves. When we work together in harmony then that is when we can achieve something great. When all youth gather for peace, all wars will come to an end.” (HWPL Chairman, Man Hee Lee Quote)

Chairwoman of IWPG also encouraged women to unite and protect their children.
She said “One of the keys to achieve world peace is the power of the women. We have to believe in ourselves and the power we possess.”
