The Korean Gandhi, Bringing New Peace to India
Renowned peace activist Mr. Man Hee Lee joined the International Conference of Chief Justices of the World (ICCJW) in India as the keynote speaker to deliver his solution for world peace.
Hosted by the Montessori School in Lucknow India; The international conference convened for 3 days from December 13th to December 15th of 2014 and gathered 160 judicial officers from 43 different nations. This was the largest ever meeting of its kind. In attendance were Former President Emil Constantinescu of Romania, Former President Kgalema Motlanthe of South Africa, Chief Justice of the Afghan Supreme Tribunal Abdul Salam Azimi, Indian First Secretary to the Permanent Mission to the UN Prakash Gupta, Chairman of the International Judicial Conference, USA Frederick Furth, and other former and current heads-of-state.
The eyes and ears of the world focused on the 160 chief justices in attendance who signed the written agreement for an enactment of the international law for world peace and the cessation of wars.
On the 13th, Mr. Lee delivered his congratulatory remarks at the ICCJW, pleading, “If the leaders truly want world peace and love their nation and its people, then they must add a clause to end all wars in the international law and sign the agreement for world peace.” Also in this conference, Mr. Lee put the world-wide peace movement into action and pled for “an enactment of the international law to end all wars.” He drew the participation of legal, political, and religious leaders for the movement. Soon after the conference, Mr. Lee joined the Peace Walk with more than 2,000 students and judicial officers to promote world peace and the cessation of wars. Mr. Lee’s efforts are being broadcasted through many media including a state-run broadcasting station of India, DD News “Insight Asia.”
Also on the 14th, Mr. Lee mentioned in his speech that “the world is living in anxiety and is in chaos: nations fighting nations, civilizations fighting civilizations, fellow countrymen killing each other, believers killing other believers, the youth killing the youth. The world is in the midst of this conflict where nation and ideology are divided.” Moreover, this is because “there is no clause in the international law to end all wars on this earth and create peace.” The pragmatic solution to this issue is to have former and current heads-of-state implement the cessation of wars and world peace in the international law with HWPL, and Mr. Lee pled that the international law must be enacted.
Lastly, the judicial officers in attendance were invited to become members of the advisory committee HWPL for establishing an international law. This is expected to expedite the enactment of the international law for world peace and the cessation of wars.
The Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light ("HWPL") is a non-profit, non-governmental international organization registered under the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and operating out of Seoul, South Korea. Mr. Man Hee Lee, a Korean War veteran and renowned peace advocate, founded the organization after his involvement with numerous volunteer associations, seeing the need for a group whose central focus was to unite the people of the world behind the goal of peace irrespective of any apparent differences among themselves.
