21 Sept- Intl Day of PeaceOnly love can overcome hatred
Contd from previous isse
On the other hand, if peace is imposed by force, there will be feelings of mistrust and enmity between competing individuals, groups, states, etc. Here any small misunderstanding can turn into a conflict, which can harm the conflicting parties. Therefore, it is clear that understanding the interests of the other side is essential for long-term peace.
The ancient records of man, be it the Bible, the Quran, or the Vedas, all have unanimously suggested in various ways that peace can only be achieved through love, compassion, and understanding. These words of wisdom have stood the test of time and this fact can be confirmed by turning the pages of our past. The aristocracy has never been successful, nor has war or rebellion ever been a solution to a problem. Everyone from Hitler to Saddam was strongly opposed.
