Paippadu Interfaith Council CC

Label: Cooperation Circle Info

10 Members

Traditions: Hindu, Islam, Christian

Action Area: Peacebuilding and Conflict Transformation

Region: Asia

Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to promote harmony among religions.

There are ten members in this CC hailing from Hindu, Muslim and Christian traditions. Paipadu is an area where there is a large Muslim population and usually there is tension in Muslim - Hindu relations. We have a good core group there drawn to URI ideals and we had several meetings there in the recent past. It was per their suggestion that we first translated the URI Charter into Malayalam, our regional language. There is a Sri Ram Krishna Ashram nearby and the inmates are very enthusiastic about this CC. We bring together people of all communities and keep vigil to avoid religious clashes. We participate in all the programs of the URI Peace Centre, which is three kilo meters away from us. They inspire us to undertake peace processions every year.

Our dream is to march towards God's kingdom with people of all faiths.
