WMC's Colombo Declaration 2002 Call to Muslim Ummah to work for Justice and Peace
Report By Our Correspondent
Justice is road to peace
The two World Wars reduced many human achievements to ashes and claimed millions of lives of unarmed civilians who never took to the battle-field. Unfortunately, the world now witnesses new types of crises and conflicts. A variety of nuclear and biological weapons have been produced that will make the World Wars sound like a mere toy game. Major research centers and science laboratories continue to fashion new modes of mass destruction weapons. As if mother earth, with its vast dimensions was not enough to accommodate this unbridled enterprise, man turned his face to the outer space, and embarked on a new adventure, carrying with him his greedy ambitions and selfish pretensions for domination.
It is becoming an element in the strategic planning of industrially developed countries. As science is an open field for future experimentation, less developed countries were obliged to jump on the bandwagon of the arms race in a bid to protect themselves against the hegemonic pretensions of the mighty. Hence, in recent years a multiplication of the number of countries joining the so-called Nuclear Club has become evident. Many politicians are obsessed with the belief that the more stockpiles of weapons they have, the more powerful they would be, which will enable them to impose their will on the weaker people. The underlying dangers should prompt man in particular and society at large to cultivate responsibility and guidance to restrain corrupt inclinations and assist consolidate virtue in its battle against evil and the ultimate decay of the human race.
