Peace is essential. When a Muslim greets another Muslim, he says Salaam Alaikum: May the Lord’s peace be on you. What do we say in this country? Om shanti shanti. Please forget the language and look at the essence. What is Shanti? Peace. When you go to a temple, they give you Prasad. In Sanskrit, Prasad also means – peace and well-being. Prasadam – tranquility and peace. When the Jews greet each other, they say Shalom. What is Shalom? It is another variation of Salaam, peace. So, I am saying it is not because of religion that we have strife but because we have forgotten the essence of it. Force can never be neutralized by force. You need affection and love.
