Malegaon: Belief in God and faith in life after death are keys to the world peace, said renowned Islamic preacher Zaid Patel even as hundreds in Malegaon - and thousands other in various parts of India, prayed for world peace through 'Peace Meditation'.


"Once we have total faith in God and belief in life after death, we will regard ourselves accountable for whatever we do in our day-to-day life. This accountability will bring in us restraint and will also encourage us to work for others", Zaid Patel said while addressing a mammoth gathering in Malegaon on October 10.


The gathering was part of the World Peace Festival organised by Tej Gyan Foundation - a Pune-based charitable trust, which organised the programme -- "World Peace...Piece by Piece" in various parts of India to champion the cause of peace.


"We should understand that all human beings are brothers and despite differences have the tendency to co-exist. But lack of communication sometimes damages this tendency, results in creating misconceptions and we who strive for peace are further broken into pieces", he said.


Quoting from the Holy Quran, which says, there is no compulsion in religion and stating that the God Himself has given us the right to practice whichever religion we wish to, Zaid said, "At the same time, He has advised us all to think on the purpose of our being into in this world by sending the Messengers. Once we think on this with the help of the guidelines as brought to us by these Messengers, we will surrender our wishes to the will of the God and will actually become peace ambassadors."


Taking the discussion even further, Ms. Alka Nimbalkar - a serving officer in the Govt. of Maharashtra, said, "World peace is in the idea of mutual understanding and freedom, and lies in paying respect to other's rights. This can be achieved by first bringing peace within then extending the same to others."


Explaining giving examples, Alka said, "We need to form a chain of such people…the peaceful people.. This chain will then bridge the gaps and would save the world….the beautiful world."


Earlier, Chairman of the Tej Gyan Foundation, in his video message, elaborated in details about the foundation's campaign "Peace...Piece by Piece." He shared the daily Peace Meditation with the audience and urged them to practice it every morning and evening at 09:09.
