Can You Imagine Alliance of all Religions in the World?
The distortion of religious messages and inclinations has frequently prompted religious contempt, abuses, and clashes including physical violence. Religious pioneers hold fundamental undertakings and obligations to instruct their gatherings that distinctions in religious convictions should not upset the advancement of setting up World Peace.
Realizing such phenomenon, Mr. Man Hee Lee, a Korean War veteran and prestigious peace advocate, established the HWPL, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light organization after his contribution with various volunteer affiliations, seeing the requirement for a gathering whose focal center was to unite the general population of the world behind the objective of peace regardless of any clear contrasts among themselves.
The World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Office (WARP Office) of HWPL, which is as of now being established comprehensively with around 104 offices in 53 countries, is persistently being set up all around the world by religious pioneers voluntarily and it is positively checked on as a practical approach to propel the acknowledgment of World Peace, on the grounds that the Peace Dialogue does not end with just ‘recognizing’ the matter but rather urge religious pioneers to put ‘steady efforts’ to achieve a common goal, which is World Peace.
HWPL’s WARP Office intends to keep the contentions brought about by religious misconceptions and deliver peace through increasing more profound understandings of the standards and teachings of every religion and the idea of peace spoken in every sacred text.
HWPL, held the WARP Office to talk about the need of interfaith dialog in accomplishing World Peace. International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG), International Peace Youth Group (IPYG), and religious pioneers speaking to different beliefs such as, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jain, Zoroastrianism, Baha’ism and a faction of an indigenous religion attended this occasion.
The thought process of the occasion is to provide stepping stone to prominent religious pioneers to openly communicate their desire for the nations of the world to be united in peace within their Holy Scriptures, and look at the distinctions and shared conviction inside of their Holy messages whilst building congruity between diverse confidence gatherings and exhibiting that religions can cooperate to accomplish peace.
Numerous religious pioneers who partook and vowed the solidarity of religious agreement in the WARP Summit 2014 have voluntarily established the peace offices in their nations of origin, pushing for genuine qualities and solidarity in religions and peace.
The WARP Summit 2014 was attended by about 2,000 guests including former and current Heads of State, religious leaders, youth, women, and journalists from around the world and its outdoor events (World Peace Walk and Pre-event) by about 30,000 people.
It was a summit of an unprecedented scale, where all participants came together for World Peace. Notably, Former and Current Heads of State and religious leaders showed their determination to realize World Peace by signing the Agreement to Propose the Enactment of International Law for the Cessation of Wars and World Peace and the Unity of Religions Agreement respectively.
1st Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit
This year’s 1st Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit was attended by about 300 people. The attendees included not only those in the various fields that had participated in the summit of the previous year but also international law experts.
In order to create an institutional framework for the realization of peace, a draft convention on the cessation of war was presented. This presentation was witnessed by the youth, women, and journalists, as each group holds an important role in achieving peace.
Below are the four highlights of the 1st Annual Commemoration of September 18th WARP Summit, which took place on 17~19 of September 2015 in Seoul and the outskirts of Seoul, Republic of Korea:
- Moving forward – International law experts modify the draft convention on the cessation of war, and launching the HWPL International Law Peace Committee.
- Inter-religious conference for resolving religious conflict.
- Establishing roles of the youth and women in the direction of the implementation process of the international convention.
- Discussing the mission of journalists for peace.
Since the WARP Summit in 2014, Seoul, South Korea ended in great success, leaders of different religions around the world have been gathering with yearnings for peace. They are arranging occasions to promote interfaith harmony through comparing and advancing proper understanding of religious scriptures.
The Peace Office that engage the local and regional communities of all religions are arising all over the world through 104 offices in 53 countries covering all continents, Europe, Oceania, America, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) and the numbers are increasing. Notably, many religious leaders are taking a proactive step toward peace, establishing WARP Offices in the global conflict zones such as the Middle East, Philippines, Indonesia, and Nigeria.
This peace office gathering are turning into an approach to connect the religions in every aspect of the globe. With each progressive peace meeting which turned into the worldwide development, an expanding number of persuasive pioneers go past their parts to function as the messengers of peace with true obligation.

“All international lawmakers before Man Hee Lee has been keeping silence about practical achievement of Cessation of War. But He is working to break this silence.”
– One of the members of the International Law Committee in London
London, UK – While the world was sending its grievances and expressing fury at the indiscriminate armed violence perpetuated by terrorists on Friday, 13 November in Paris, the HWPL International Law Peace Committee members and renowned international law scholars met with HWPL Chairman and Peace Activist, Mr. Man Hee Lee, to discuss the 2nd draft of the International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts. Discussions were held over the course of three intensive meetings on November 12th through 14th in London, and included a post-action for the finalization of the draft Convention and its implementation.
The International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts is HWPL’s core initiative, which was first presented at the 1sr Annual Commemoration of the World Alliance of Religions Peace (WARP) Summit in September this year. It aims to prevent any non-peaceful activities throughout the world.
Chairman Lee declared at the International Law Committee meeting that “without implementation of an International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts, world peace would remain a remote goal. Because law itself acts as watchman, no one can easily perpetuate violence and cause conflicts once the International Convention is set in stone. Today at this very important gathering, the HWPL International Law Peace Committee members will present the 2nd draft of the Convention, which can then be divided into each provision which will be finalized by making necessary revisions. Once implemented, this Convention will be engraved in the hearts of many people to have a peaceful life.”
The Convention on the Renunciation and Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts. Sep. 19th ‘2015
Dr. Kamal Hossain, the Vice Chair of the International Law Association, played an integral role in drafting the constitution of Bangladesh and is active in the arena of peace activism. During the committee meeting Dr. Hossain said, “The International Convention on the Cessation of War is imperative for various reasons vecause this initiative was developed from the marginalized voices, the voices of women and youth. War does not benefit anyone rather it takes everything away. This innovative Convention will strengthen our global society and international law framework by supplementing the gaps.”
One of the members of the HWPL International Law Peace Committee said, “There are other institutions that are dealing with the same subjects. What we have is the strong network which can be provided by HWPL. We can propose a Declaration and with it, HWPL, as an organigation representing a number of legal minds, can approach the heads of state, calling on them to help this initiative… Chairman Lee is someone with lots of wisdom and has access to a large number of young people. At the end of the day, the change can only come from states, and as such, they must be pushed… This provides room for innovation and initiative.”
Upon its presentation, it is expected that the revised Convention will serve as a unique and effective tool in preventing any further non-peaceful activities like terrorist attacks and civil wars. It ensure lasting peace.
Prior to their trip to London, Chairman Lee and the HWPL Peace Delegation visited Los Angeles and El Salvador to meet with international heads of state, religious leaders, media, and youth to speak about the urgency of a united commitment for HWPL’s [eace – building campaigns into their classroom. The City Council of Santa Tecla, El Salvador and the citizens volunteered to build the Peace Monument and collaborated with HWPL to take a new leap toward bringing peace in their communities.

A German bus driver has become famous after he made an impromptu speech to welcome a group of migrants to country at Aug 2015. It was hot days when Syrian Refugees were coming to Europe.
“Excuse me ladies and gentle men from all over the world on this bus, I want to say something.” driver Sven Latteyer announced in English to passengers on his number 286 bus in the Bavarian city of Eriangen.
” I want to say welcome. Welcome to Germany. Welcome to my country. Have a nice day!”
An anonymous passenger said travelers which included local as well as around 15 migrants “One of the young African guys wiped a tear from his eye.” This news spread out fast by SNS in Germany. German was in the middle of Syrian Refugees Issue.
After the 42-years-old Latteyer was identified, he told the media that he had decided to make the greeting as a show of support for the refugees arriving in Germany. Newscaster Claus Kleber appearing to be reduced to tears as he reported on the story.
“My brother-in-law doesn’t talk a lot about the years 1998 and 1999 when the war was raging in Kosovo. He’s trying to forget the horror.”
Latteyer explained that he was inspired by his grandfather who lost his arm in World War II, and his brother-in-law, who fled to Germany from the conflict in Kosovo.
