“This seems to be a good opportunity for all of us especially our faith leaders to join together to promote PEACE AND LEARN more about the moral dimension of Islam.
The ingredients of true leadership are not just about teaching but more about learning; the capacity to learn resides with us. One can not be a leader without followers. I have no doubt that the event will create the space for “leaders” and “followers ” to understand the real meaning of peace. As we are aware leaders are individuals who have decided to be true to themselves and have independence from the expectations of others. I hope and pray we will sow some good seeds towards building genuine trust and enjoy the harvest in the long term. Trust is neither a gift nor is it a talent – it must be earned. May it be a day for earning trust and uniting people to promote peace to promote peace.”
