India, Pak should shed differences in larger interest: Kalam

Former President APJ Abdul Kalam with Air Chief Marshal (Retd.) O P Mehra and Director of Sai International Centre, Lt. Gen. ML Chibber during the inauguration of international conference on 'Unity of Faiths' at the Sai International Centre for Human Values in New Delhi on Saturday. PTI

Kalam said at an international conference on Unity of Faiths here that spiritual leaders also need to contribute towards establishing a world "where people can live in peace without the fear of war and terrorism".

"While I was addressing the European Parliament recently, I noticed how nations that had fought for over 100 years have come together," he said at the global meet.

Hoping that India and Pakistan too would shed their differences, he said, "You can fight for hundreds of years and even then you can come together. This is evident from the example of the 23 European nations."

The two-day conference was attended by representatives of different religions and 26 papers have been presented by contributors from the US, Ireland, Australia, Turkey and Pakistan, besides India.
