New Delhi: Apprehending the threats posed by global warming and nuclear armament, religious leaders of different faiths on Thursday came together to voice their concern over these issues which, they said, were pushing the world to the path of destruction. 


Addressing a conference on ''Global Warming and Nuclear Disarmament'' in the national capital, Swami Jayendra Saraswathi, the Shankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt and Hazrat Maulana Imam Umair Ahmed Ilyasi, President of the All India Organisation of Imams of Mosques, highlighted the ill effects of nuclear armaments.


“Today, science is moving towards the path of destruction in the form of atomic power. In the ancient times, they used bow and arrow to destroy their enemies, but today due to science, the country is moving towards the path of destruction,” Swami Jayendra Saraswathi said.


While, Hazrat Maulana Imam Umair Ahmed Ilyasi appealed to the world’s religious leaders to fight the cause of global warming.


“Today, global warming has become such a threat that if all the religious leaders and citizens of the world do not come together to fight this, a day would come when all the beings on earth will come to an end. So, together we must take this forward,” Hazrat Ilyasi said.


The religious leaders of the world would undertake a world tour to spread awareness about global warming.


“We have started the initiative from India after which we will go to Vatican and from there we will go to Chief Rabbinate and from there Mecca and like this, leaders of all religious headquarters will go on a world tour. We will start the initiative from December 7 at the Copenhagen conference in Denmark,” Hazrat Maulana Imam Umair Ahmed Ilyasi informed.


Developing countries such as India and China are among the most threatened nations by climate change, but their huge populations means that they will still be heavily reliant on burning fossil fuels to try to lift millions of people out of poverty.


The U.N. Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change predicts that global warming could raise sea levels up to 58 centimeters and submerge low-lying islands by 2100. (ANI)
