The Rationale of Conference

We live in Asia and daily consume news like bomb blasts, Kashmir conflict, water war, foreign invasion, suicidal attacks, protests by separatists, surgical strikes, and frequent killings. It is hard for a human to stay normal and healthy under the bombardment of such news. Pakistan and India recently changed the flavor of news from hate to love by opening Kartarpur for the Sikh community. There is a need to have a permanent journey towards conflict resolution and peace in Asia for regional prosperity, poverty alleviation, and well-being of people.

This peace process drive needs its replication beyond Asia in the entire world. This conference will invite attention of global scholars, influencers, politicians and authorities who matter at the helm of affairs to think and act for the peace.
