HUMAN RIGHTS, INTER FAITH DIALOGUE, HARMONY & PEACE

"Inter religious dialogue" that has become so commonplace now-a-days. According to PCSW&HR, s prospective about this is that it is a symbol of the dawning of a new consciousness that accepts—and in many cases celebrates—the reality of cultural and religious difference. The reasons are, in part, pragmatic: we need to understand each other and work co-operatively for world reconciliation, harmony and peace. We are at a point in human history when no single religious or cultural tradition can responsibly decide to live in glorious isolation from the rest of the world. We either learn to live together in harmony or face the distinct possibility of destroying the one world we are called to share.

For this purpose from its establishment, PCSW&HR initiated different projects. The purpose of these project is to built the capacity of local NGOs, CBOs, Governmental organization, students organization, youth groups, political parties, local bodies representatives, senior citizens, trade unions, business community, labors organizations, teachers and women organizations on the issue of inter-religious harmony, equality, justice, peace, social development, human rights, current National & International and local affairs etc through the academic activities, awareness workshops, free discussions, consultations, seminars and publications, research and monitoring etc.

To create awareness among the Muslims and Christians living in Pakistan, to respect others and believe that sharing our values and wisdom can lead us to act for the good of all, to support freedom of religions and spiritual expression and the rights of all individuals and peoples at set for in local, National & International laws. In this regard different delegations of Pakistan Council attended the different International conferences, seminars and planning session in all over the world arranged by prominent Church organizations and Muslim organizations
