Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to reduce and eventually eradicate intolerance and violence against minorities from society through archaeology, history, museology and heritage management. Conservation of heritage of different people and awareness about a common origin can reduce the element of intolerance in addition to introducing peace studies in history and archaeology departments of different universities.
It's all part of making a better world.
I want to make a tolerate pluralistic society with no extremism and violence against the weak.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by ethnic and religious minorities in my country on one hand. On the other hand, the introduction of a positive approach in the majority would restrain them from supporting extremist elements.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Protection of Heritage sites and their conversion into museums and libraries
Introduction of Peace studies in institutes
Creation of a pluralistic and tolerant society
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
If universities adopt a course of peace-studies, people stop demolishing heritage sites of minorities, persecution of minority groups reduces, these would be the indicators of the success of my vision.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
