Nepal Unites organized an Interaction Program with Religious Leaders on Peace, Harmony, and Religious Tolerance in Nepalgunj, Banke, Lumbini Province where the Religious Leaders were invited from Hindu, Islam, and Buddhist Faith.

Hindu Religious Leader, Mahant Chandranath Yogi, head of Bageshwari temple, said that all religions are human religions and everyone should maintain unity for peace. He said that there is a need for peace not only in religion but in all areas.

 Similarly, Muslim Religious Leader Maulana Abdul Jabbar Manjari said that people should broaden their thinking to maintain peace.

"Take a look at the people of all the communities in the world, everyone's blood is red," said Maulana Manjari, that's why it is necessary to change the mindset to build a peaceful society."

Because the youth power in the society can establish lasting peace if they want, one can do something to protect the rights of others.
