A gathering of young people to promote peace and kindness was held in Yangon by the Kalyana Mitta Foundation.
The group has been promoting peace through entertainment in the form of stage performances, which are starred in by young people themselves. Religious leaders say reaching out to people and exchanging thoughts and opinions can help promote peace.
Chief Convener, The Islamic Center of Myanmar, Al- Haj Aye Lwin, said, "Since Myanmar is a plural society, it has diversity. But we shouldn’t see diversity as an enemy, and instead assume it as a strength."
