The Universal Friendship Organisation (UFO) called for peace and harmony among various communities on the 22nd Rising Day celebration of Meitei Huyen Langlon Sintam Sanglen (Satjal Academy) at Koirengei, Imphal East.
Delivering the keynote address of the celebration, UFO general secretary S Yuhenba said violence is not a solution to anything, but it is the peace, love and unity which will bring the society forward.
He also pointed out that moralities among the younger generation are declining as a result the cultural and traditional practices maintained by the forefathers of Meitei are gradually fading off, he added.
"Only the knowledge gained from books or studies is not enough, there is a need for social education which is to be learned from elders and our surroundings in moving towards civilisation at the same time sticking to our own identity," said the general secretary.
Expressing the need of maintaining and preserving one's own culture and tradition, he said, “At the same time we should respect other's culture and traditions.”
The function was attended by wife of chief minister N Ongbi Hiyanu as chief guest, social worker N Dilipkumar as president, Adhayksh Imphal East P Bimola and advocate Kh Kanta as guests of honour.
