Ambassador Haroon, friends, ladies and gentlemen:
Rajmohan Gandhi strongly advised against labelling all Pakistanis as terrorists and shared his three-point mantra for India to become a world power, one of which was that people in the country should stop stereotyping on the basis of religion. He was speaking at a lecture organised on the 50th death anniversary of Gandhi's close aide J.C. Kumarappa, who died at Jan 30, 1960.
'India must encourage Pakistanis who stand up against jihadists and know where their interests lie - and what Islam really is.' Rajmohan Gandhi writes in the Hindustan Times.
A distinguished group from Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka visited the Initiatives of Change conference centre in Caux, Switzerland, on the invitation of Rajmohan Gandhi. They participated in the second Caux Forum for Human Security, attended by over 400 people from around the world.
The new President of Initiatives of Change International, Rajmohan Gandhi, shares his grandfather’s peace-building mission. Mike Lowe reports.
Usha and Rajmohan Gandhi travel to Lahore to talk to people about the Partition and the memories it has left behind: some painful and others that recount acts of courage and compassion. This unearthing of the dark and the noble, they hope, will assist in the healing of the subcontinent. Three articles in the Tribune of India, plus letters from readers in response.
