Bangalore: South Asian students of Harvard University conducted a 'global vigil' for peace between India and Pakistan, on Sunday.
The South Asia Centre, Boston, and the Alliance for Secular and Democratic South Asia sponsored the vigil, which intended to bring into attention the concern of students about the violations at the Line of Control (LoC) and the war hype built by "sections of the media and politicians in India that threatens peace in the regioní, reports IANS.

The organizers of the event asked the students to take part in the maintenance of harmony between the two nations.

The sponsors appreciated the fact that India and Pakistan have reiterated their commitment to continue the dialogue process and they also mentioned that dialogue between the two countries must be uninterrupted and uninterruptible, reports IANS.

"Any deviation from this process will only encourage and strengthen extremist, hawkish and fanatical elements on both sides who want to derail the peace process," they said.

The organizers also added said: "A prosperous and well-connected South Asia is our best response to these divisive factions."
