Compassion lies at the heart of the teachings of both Hinduism and Islam, as it also lies at the heart of other great religious traditions. It is my heartfelt hope that recognition of this fundamental shared principle will be grounds for Hindus and Muslims to overcome any sense of wariness they may feel about each other and develop a fruitful, trusting relationship. The time has come for followers of the world’s great religions to work together to create a more compassionate and peaceful world.
