Prof. John Kurakar
Peace and development are then in a fundamental sense related to processes of globalization and global social development. The problems we face today is violent conflicts, destruction of nature, poverty, hunger etc.These are human created problems.Which can be resolved through human effort,understanding and a development of a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood. We need to cultivate a universal responsibility for one another and the planet we share.

All Religions pursue the same goals, that of cultivating human goodness and bringing happiness to all human beings. Three major world religions have their roots in India: Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism. Buddhism and Sikhism both grew from Hinduism. All three share the idea of non-violence (ahimsa). But In the world, Religious conflicts increasing day by day.  Some serious violence committed by religious extremists? They kill thousands of people, religious extremists belief that they were doing God’s work and would be rewarded in Heaven? Most religious or spiritual people are not willing to kill people in the name of God. It is therefore easy for these people to point the finger and say that others are responsible for religious extremism. They might point to other religions than their own or they might point to a small group of extremists and deny that they have anything to do with creating or encouraging extremism.

URI is the fast growing International Interfaith Organization to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice and healing for the Earth and all living beings. We believe that our religious, spiritual lives, rather than dividing us, guide us to build community and respect for one another. ·  The URI is a bridge-building organization, not a religion. We respect the sacred wisdom of each religion, spiritual expression and indigenous tradition.  We respect the differences among religions, spiritual expressions and indigenous traditions. We encourage our members to deepen their roots in their own tradition.
Global poverty and violent conflict are two of the most serious problems that we face in the world today, and they are often linked. In the poorest corners of the world, the daily struggle of deprivation can often lead to clashes between individuals or communities that can then descend into violence. Young people can be forced to seek refuge in militant organizations in order to survive, and once recruited they become part of the problem. Poverty is clearly a contributing factor to warfare.
