On Saturday, 10th November 2018, the inauguration of the Gandhi Peace Centre took place on the grounds of the Shri Venkateswara Balaji temple complex in Tividiale, near Birmingham, UK. This complex includes seven symbolic hills dedicated to major faiths: Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Jainism and Sikhism.
The Gandhi Peace Centre opens a new horizon for more people committed to peace, multicultural tolerance and understanding.
At the inauguration, various dignitaries highlighted Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings of non-violence and respect for all living creatures. Dr. Duncan Wielzen represented URI at this occasion, for which he had written a statement on Mahatma Gandhi’s inspiration and the work of URI, committed to peace. This written statement was well received.
