Interfaith Harmony Radio Program

Interfaith Harmony Radio Program

The full radio program is now online. Listen here:

As the World Harmony week approaches, the sound of commitment and compassion to create cultures of peace is growing louder worldwide.

To this commitment, we in the North zone of India and Afghanistan joined hands with one of the largest university community radio stations in India, Delhi University, to air a five-day program on World Interfaith Harmony Week to reach out to thousands to people from diverse backgrounds, gender, age groups, professions, etc.

As the initiative hopes to take a step towards spreading the message of love, peace and harmony, the name of the show will be Ek Koshish (One Hope). It will be aired from 1st February- 5th February at 11:00 am IST at 90.4 FM.

In the days to follow, we will try to explore the possibilities of interfaith harmony by looking into the basic tenets and commonalities all religions share. The golden rule of “treat others as you would want them to treat you” is one such common thread that runs through all major religions in different versions, and is something we will be touching upon.

We will also be looking into the aspects of a universal responsibility to contribute to interfaith harmony and the role of religion in fulfilling that responsibility, touching the thoughts of His Holiness Dalai Lama as well.

We would also share with you, as a part of the series, inspiring stories and efforts of establishing interfaith harmony from Afghanistan, Brazil and South America, South Africa, Cambodia, Kenya, and India, to name a few places from around the global network. Hopefully, this will encourage us all in our endeavors.

The program can be accessed through Delhi University Radio Application (DUCR).

One can also follow our Facebook page: United Religions Initiative - North India and Afghanistan for the relays and audio.

I would like to give a special round of applause to some people without whom this would not have been possible. Their immense support, cooperation and time from their busy schedules at short notice, helped us spread the message for peace and harmony louder and stronger:

  • Victor Kazanjian, Maria Crespo, Alice Swett, Matthew Youde, Gaea Denker, Biswadeb Chakraborty, Abraham Karickam, Sari Heidenreich and Rev. Dr. Stephen Albert from our Global and National team. 
  • Deo Kant Mishra, Mahinderpal Ji, Shalini Dubey, Brahmanand Sir, Ehsaan Shayegan and Jamal Ahmad Mahmood, amongst our dear Cooperation Circle members.
  • Padmini Ghosh and Aabid Bhat, our chief editors and designers.
  • Lastly, the entire DU radio team and volunteers: John Sir, Deepak Kumar, Anil Kumar, Ashish, Saurav, Supriya, Nirmal, Hayat Amiree, Manan Anand, and Akshit Raj. 

The program would not have been possible without the contributions and humongous support of the aforementioned people. 

Last but not least, I would also like to thank our our dear Cooperation Circle members from India and around the world who supported us in sharing their stories and the great work they are doing at an important platform. 

We hope our koshish, or our Hope, is able to make a small difference in this difficult time around the world. 

Please stay tuned and don't forget to tune in to 90.4 MzH!!
