New Delhi: Spiritual leaders from various faiths have decided to set up a formal group to suggest measures to stop communal riots in India. A two-day event – “Meeting of Diverse Spiritual Traditions of India” – was called by Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama here. Around 100 religious leaders and scholars decided to set up an action committee. “The committee will recommend preventive measures or remedial action in response to any unfortunate occurrence of conflicts within and between our communities, especially when it takes place in the name of religion.”
