The International Day of Peace or World Peace Day is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by a unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to peace above all differences and to contribute to building a “culture of peace”. Various events and seminars are also held to reassure we are fully committed to playing our part in building a peaceful world.
Peace Children Care Centre (PCCC) and Persatuan Kebajikan Asas Pulau Pinang (PKAPP) organised a programme in relation to World Peace Day, themed “End racism and build peace”. Tan Sri Dato Seri, Haji Mohd Yusof Latiff from Pengerusi Majlis Perundingan Muhibbah Negeri Pulau Pinang was the chief guest of this event. Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Penang, Malaysia was also invited to present the Islamic principles on the theme.
The jamaat had the privilege of presenting a brief, yet comprehensive introduction to Islam. Moreover, the noble teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa with regard to establishing peace were shared with the audience.
