Women of different faiths are traveling across parts of India to foster peace and goodwill in their country, which they say is beset by sectarian intolerance and violence. Some 100 women began their journey — named, Batein Aman Ki or Talks of Peace, on Sept. 20. Five caravan groups began from different parts of the country. “We are getting very good response from people of all walks of lives,” said Joycia Thorat, a Christian social worker and part of the organizing team.
Several rights groups and faith-based women groups with Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Jain, Buddhist, Parsi and Sikh backgrounds — have joined the program, Thorat said. “The purpose is to stress the need to uphold the constitutional values of secularism and religious freedom to help harmonious existence of people of different religions in the country,” she said.
