Intro/ Topic – Global Conflicts and Need for Justice
- Tensions and uncertainty in the world are on the rise and the risk of a global war is looking imminent. What are the consequences of such a war in today’s nuclear weaponized world?
- Do scriptures warn of a time where nations would come on the verge of a global calamity and what do they advise to avert it?
- Does international arms trade has any role in escalating tension between nations, fueling warfare and ensuring the world remained bound within a perpetual cycle of violence, if so what could be possible solution.
- The world stands in great need of peace and harmony, yet despite comprehending this, it seems as though people are unwilling to take the necessary steps to achieve it.
- Should the primary interest of every nation be the well-being of its people and achieving peace, harmony and Justice for all humanity?
- Could lack of fairness and Justice be the root cause of conflicts?
- Is it time to work together towards safeguarding our future with sincere leaders who bridge our differences and highlight our common humanity?
- Should we build a peaceful multicultural society, where people of all faiths, race and beliefs are able to live side by side with tolerance and mutual respect?

Please see the following links for further information on World Religions Conference and Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
World Religions Conference is an initiative of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at to foster interfaith harmony and promote peace in the society. Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at is well known for this and takes pride in promoting this cause all over the world.
The World Religions Conference is a learning experience that offers delegates from diverse faith communities and philosophical traditions a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas and explore topical issues in a spirit of mutual respect. This was so envisioned by the Holy Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community over a century ago.
Every year a theme is selected as a topic for deliberations at this event, and representatives of various faiths are invited for participation. These deliberations, as they are based on a mutual respect for each other’s differences, are an example to all who attend, and a valuable lesson of unity and accepting others.
In Canada WRC’s are being held for four decades in various cities and towns across the country.
The typical format of the program is such that every member of the panel gets 20 minutes for his/ her presentation and after the presentations there are about 30 minutes for Q & A Session. Questions are taken in the written form and asked by moderator of the event.
