The work of Zoroastrian college interfaith peace DIALOGUE dept.
GLOBAL ROLE of S. B.B.S/ZOROASTRIAN COLLEGE IN INTERFAITH PEACE KEEPING.
The first Head of this Dept. of the Z. C. was Late Fr. Dr. Albert Nambiaparambil, cmi., Director, Upasana, and Organising founder Secretary of W.F.I.R.C., who is the Doyen of the Interfaith Peace Dialogue movement in India.
Z.C. encourages independent original research in any subject concerned with PEACE, and INTERFAITH DIALOGUE & RELIGIONS IDEAS & PHILOSOPHIES and CELEBRATIONS OF FESTIVALS OF FAITHS and RELIGIOUS CEREMONIES, MANTHRAS & SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION.
Research thesis can be submitted for the Degrees of M. Phil or Ph.D. research should be original and the result should be for Universal Benefit of Humanity.
Since 1986, research conscious persons on a variety of interfaith subjects have submitted theses from Belgium, Canada, Russia, Japan, and India.
Zoroastrian College has participated in many International and National conferences in India and other countries through this dept. amongst these, to mention a few are the following:
Zoroastrian College has a two-fold purpose in sending representatives from this Dept. to attend National & International Conferences. The Zoroastrian Religion has very few surviving followers in the World. The known numbers are less than 150,000 in all countries. There is a revival of the faith in its Original Aryan homeland, the countries of the former USSR. The teachings of the first Monotheistic faith have influenced all the subsequent faiths in the past 9500 years. But these teachings are not very well known to persons who are not born as Parsis/ Zoroastrians.
Hence the primary purpose of sending representatives from this dept. to attend conferences is to make the people from many countries of the world aware of the facts that the Zoroastrian Religion is the oldest surviving Monotheistic faith in the World and some thing about its teachings and existing practises of its followers.
The second purpose is that the Parsis of India have the longest record of Peace keeping in the World. Parsis have not fought any wars for past over 1000 years. Parsis are known for peaceful and good relations with people of all religions in all countries. Hence when Interfaith Peace is the topic of the conferences it is helpful for the Conferences Organisers to have the benefit of the long past experience of Parsis in Peace keeping functions and methods.
This Dept.functions in Collaboration with several Global Organisations including
1) UNITED RELIGIONS INITIATIVE
2) WORLD FELLOWSHIP OF INTER – RELIGIOUS COUNCILS.
3) INDIAN COUNCIL OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS amongst others.
INTERFAITH PEACE EDUCATION is promoted through this Department worldwide. People are encouraged to do Research and present original Thesis with suggestions to solve problems and bring peace to the World.
This department is open to all persons throughout the world who are interested in PEACE STUDIES especially PEACE AMONGST PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT RELIGIONS AND CULTURES. The main emphasis is on understanding LIVING FAITHS to bring about PEACE & HARMONY through better UNDERSTANDING & LOVE between the people of different religious and cultural backgrounds.
Through this department the College organises INTERNATIONAL & NATIONAL CONFERENCES to promote PEACE THROUGH INTERFAITH DIALOGUE. Conferences organised by other associations are also attended by the College Representatives. Since 1975 conferences held in Israel, Canada, USA, Belgium, Italy, Peoples Republic of China- Province of Taiwan, Kazakhstan, Iran and other countries as well as within India have had very good results in promoting Peace. In 1993 Zoroastrian College had co-organised World Religions Peace Conferences in India and participated in Conferences abroad, in conjunction with the World Parliament of Religions, International Association of Educators for World Peace; World Federation of Inter-Religious Councils and other Organisations.
The turn of the Millennium witnessed a remarkable step forward in the United Nations. For the first time in the history of the U.N. the Religious Heads were invited for the PEACE SUMMIT from all countries of the world. From India the largest delegation of 108 Sadhujis and Swamijis had attended with Representatives of other faiths.
In August 2000, the Zoroastrian College President, DAME DR. PROF.MEHER MASTER-MOOS was honoured to be invited to the United Nations SUMMIT FOR PEACE. Heads of Religious were invited to attend from all countries, this SUMMIT CONFERENCE FOR PEACE. She was the only Zoroastrian representative in the official delegation from India to the U.N. to be invited as a speaker .She was also a speaker at the Statten Island function in honour of the Indian Prime Minister A.B. Vajpayee.
In October 2002 she was the only Zoroastrian lady speaker and representative in the U.N. WOMEN HEADS OF RELIGIONS CONFERENCE, in Geneva.
In July 2004, she was an invited panel speaker at the PARLIAMENT OF WORLD RELIGIONS in Barcelona through the Temple of Understanding and also attended the Assembly in Monserrat along with Zoroastrian College youth leader Mr. MinooJokhi.
Representatives of different religions at Interfaith Assembly at Monserrat.
Through this department Zoroastrian College is well connected with other Interfaith Peace Organisations. Z.C President is a Member of the Global Council of the UNITED RELIGIONS INITATIVE, through which she attended the Global Assembly for peace in Brazil in August 2002. She is also the Vice-President, since 1991 and President during 2013-2016 of the WORLD FELLOWSHIP OF INTER RELIGIOUS COUNCILS, in Cochin, Kerala through which Interfaith Peace Dialogue Conferences are regularly held. She is the Zoroastrian Representative on the Indian Council of Religious Leaders.
Zoroastrian College also collaborates with many Inter Faith Organisations within India and Foreign Countries.
PERSONS IN ANY COUNTRY CAN DO ORIGINAL RESEARCH AND SUBMIT THEIR WORK FOR DOCTORAL DEGREES THROUGH THE ZOROASTRIANCOLLEGE THROUGH THIS DEPT.In 1990,DR. AHMED ABDULLA OF JORDAN submitted his research on Peace in the Middle East. This research thesis so impressed the Jordanian Govt. that the suggestions he had made formed the basis of the Palestinian Peace talks, which eventually led to a settlement of the problem.
In 1990, 1992 and 1993 Zoroastrian College participated in the major world Religions Conferences organised by the ST. EGIDIO COMMUNITY in Italy/Europe with support from the Vatican; which eventually led to the Peace proposal of establishing Headquarters for all the three major religions, Jewish, Christian and Islam in Jerusalem.
THE UNITED RELGIONS INITIATIVE, is a grass roots organisation working through CO-OPERATION CIRCLES in many countries. Through this department of Zoroastrian College many CCs have been formed and conferences attended.
The WORLD FELLOWSHIP OF INTER RELIGIOUS COUNCILS based in Kerala closely works with this department of ZoroastrianCollege.
With its secular Constitution and twelve major religious communities, India provides a model country for Inter Faith Peace. Many persons from other countries having predominantly only one religion find it a great experience to visit India through the Zoroastrian College Inter Faith Peace Studies Dept. and discover how it is possible for people of different religions, languages and cultures to LIVE TOGETHER and work together PEACEFULLY in the same residential buildings and offices/factories. This educational process is unique; and is a facility only provided by the ZoroastrianCollege in India.
In the year 1989 the one and only Zoroastrian College in the World accomplished a PIECE OF PRIVATE DIPLOMACY in the interests of education internationally. MADAME BENAZIR BHUTTO was the first Muslim woman to achieve being elected Prime Minister of Pakistan. To felicitate her for this achievement, ZoroastrianCollege was the first to confer an Honorary Doctorate Degree on her. At that time in Pakistan, the Muslim majority community school children gave an exam paper in Islamic religion. The other minority communities – Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Zoroastrians – children had to give an exam paper in Economics-Civics; and marks were usually less for this paper which brought down the general average marks for the non-Muslim children and made it more difficult to gain college admission on merit. At a public function held at the glittering Avari Towers Hotel in Karachi for conferring the Doctorate Degree Award, PRIME MINISTER BENAZIR BHUTTO publicly stated that the EIGHTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF PAKISTAN would be carried out in Parliament to ensure EDUCATIONAL EQUALITY for all school children, to enable the CHILDREN OF THE MINORITY COMMUNITIES to give their exam papers in their own respectivereligion, to be examined by persons of that religion, so that higher marks and equality would be ensured..
In 1989 the first Doctorate degree was conferred by ZC on Benazir Bhutto, the first woman Prime Minister of Pakistan & of any Muslim Country to promote Interfaith Peace between Islamic people and people of all other religions.
The work of this Department has been greatly facilitated by the support of Prof. Dr. Francis Dessart, then Sec. Gen. Of the International Association of Educators for World Peace, in Namur, Belgium; who was the Zoroastrian College International Advisory Board member.
The College has worked in collaboration with several Organisations globally to interact with PEACE PROMOTION PROJECTS and PEACE EDUCATION as part of its collaboration with the UNITED NATIONSPEACEUNIVERSITY. The Organisations with which collaborations have been made include
WORLD FELLOWSHIP OF INTER RELIGIOUS COUNCILS based in Kerala, South India INDIAN COUNCIL OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS based in Delhi UNITED RELIGIONS INITIATIVE based in CaliforniaUSA INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS – USA ST EGIDIO COMMUNITY – Italy TEMPLE OF UNDERSTANDING --USA&India BHARAT NIRMAN- MYSTIC INDIA – India.
The main purpose of these collaborations is to create networks of awareness to promote PEACE globally and INTERFAITH DIALOGUE as a mode of Peace Process.Z.C. has participated in many International and national Peace and InterFaith Conferences. The main purpose of participation is twofold;
1. The primary purpose of sending representatives from this dept. to attend conferences is to make the people from many countries of the world aware of the facts that the Zoroastrian Religion is the oldest surviving Monotheistic faith in the World and some thing about its teachings and existing practises of its followers. People of other faiths need to be made aware of the living existence of the Zoroastrian religion as the oldest surviving monotheistic religion through articles, speeches and participation at Congresses and Conferences.The Zoroastrian Religion has very few surviving followers in the World. The known numbers are less than 150,000 in all countries. There is a revival of the faith in its Original Aryan homeland, the countries of the former USSR. The teachings of the first Monotheistic faith have influenced all the subsequent faiths in the past 9500 years. But these teachings are not very well known to persons who are not born as Parsis/ Zoroastrians.
2.To collaborate with thework and activities of other organisations having similar objectives and purposes to strengthen grassroots level bonds amongst people of many religions and countries. And thereby help promote the work for PEACE on PLANET EARTH of SHAH BEHRAM VARZAVAND SAHEB.The second purpose is that the Parsis of India have the longest record of Peace keeping in the World. Parsis have not fought any wars for past over 1000 years. Parsis are known for peaceful and good relations with people of all religions in all countries. Hence when Interfaith Peace is the topic of the conferences it is helpful for the Conferences Organisers to have the benefit of the long past experience of Parsis in Peace keeping functions and methods.
