Unity among different faith and race need of the hour

By S.H. Moulana

The respected Buddhist leader Dalai Lama sees reasons for optimism even in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. People are helping one another he told BBC, and if seven billion people on earth develop a sense of oneness, they may unite to solve the problem of climate change.

His thoughts are with those who are suffering and afraid during this terrible pandemic but he says there has been much to inspire and to celebrate. Many people don’t care about their own safety but are helping, which is really wonderful. When we face some tragic situation, it reveals the deeper human values of compassion, he continued.

Usually people don’t think about these deeper human values, but when they see their human brothers and sisters suffering the response comes automatically.

We saw another generous act added to the inspiring interview of the Dalai Lama and that is from the highly popular Pope Francis who contributed $ 1.13 million to help people in the Italian capital, Rome, who lost jobs because of the coronavirus.

The church stressed that charity has no religion and so many Muslims in Rome have lost their jobs and most of their income during this difficult period.

The Church recalled how Muslims have been helping needy Christians all over Italy during Ramadan without asking about their religion.

In the meantime, US officials, American Jewish leaders have awarded Dr Mohammed Al-Issa for combatting anti-Semitism.

He vowed that the Muslim World League would keep on until there is no more anti-Semitism and racism. Al-Issa has been the MWL secretary-general since 2016 and has forged several alliances with Jewish, Christian and other religious committees across the world.

MWL has dramatically increased outreach to all of God’s children- Christians. Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and others for our battle against intolerance and division. Al-Issa says partnerships are more important than ever to defeat common enemies from extremism.

Apart from the changes what Dalai Lama saw for better we see something totally unusual that is the white joining the black in large numbers even outnumbering the black to fight against the injustice to black.

We saw these protests spread to well over a dozen developed countries in the west where the population is predominantly white.

Isn’t this a sense of oneness?

Stay Safe, Stay at Home, Stay Informed, But Don't Forget to Wash Your Hands.
