Religions for Peace International and Religions for Peace Myanmar
21 FEBRUARY 2021
To the People of Myanmar, the rulers, and to the International Community,
Peace, Shalom, Shanthi, Salaam!
With deep distress, Religions for Peace Myanmar, and Religions for Peace International, on behalf of all its regional and national entities, plead with all stakeholders, to deescalate the sad turn of events in the streets of Myanmar. More blood has been shed in this month. Religions for Peace stands with the people of Myanmar in their quest for the sacredness of life. We strongly condemn the shedding of the blood of innocents.
Condolences for the Passing of Religions for Peace‘s Women Leaders
Religions for Peace is deeply saddened by the passing of two veterans of religious peacebuilding, Hon. Ms. Mehrezeia Labidi-Maiza (Tunis and France) and Ms. Mary Khin Nyo Nyo (Myanmar). Inspired by their faith, they devoted their lives to serving peaceful coexistence and justice for all people. As we mourn the loss of their servant leadership, and their contributions to peace, we honour their memory and celebrate their lives. We send their families and colleagues our prayers for strength. Their passing calls us to remember the loss of each life due to Covid-19 and senseless violence. To honour their lives and their deaths, we commit to continuing to facilitate multi religious collaboration for the health, peace, and security for all.
