The national spokesperson of Ahimsa Yatra, Munishree Lokprakash ‘Lokesh’, handed over a special message of the great thinker and renowned Jain Acharyashree Mahaprajna to Gen. Musharraf. Acharya Mahaprajna said in his message,

“Pakistan and India have similar problems and worries. We only can fight poverty, illiteracy and diseases rampant in our region, if our region is peaceful. Your efforts towards strengthening world peace and creating a non-violent society are commendable. I hold the belief that the ensuing atmosphere of peace will help us diverting the enormous defense expenditures to resolve the above-mentioned problems. To deal with contending issues the idea of Anekanta or non-absolutism, which talks of relative viewpoints, as given by Bhagwan Mahavira, can help. Meeting and dialogue are the first steps in this direction.”

Muni Lokprakash 'Lokesh' said that under the leadership of the President of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, and His Holiness Acharya Mahaprajna and under the banner of “Foundation For Unity Of Religion And Enlightened Citizenship”, the religious heads would contribute to their best to root out the evils of poverty, illiteracy and disease. The foundation will organize an international conference in November 2005 for this purpose. Many heads of states from different parts of the world will participate in this conference.

Munishree 'Lokesh' gave detailed informations about the Ahimsa Yatra of Acharya Mahaprajna, devoted to establish non-violence, peace, love, and brotherhood. He said that the government of India last week had announced to give the ‘National Award For Communal Harmony’ to Acharya Mahaprajna for his unique contribution in this field. In 2003 Acharya Mahaprajna was given the prestigious ‘Indira Gandhi Award for National Integration’.

The vice chancellor of Jain Vishwa Bharati University, Smt. Sudhamahi Regunathan handed over the invitation letter for the International Conference to the Pakistani president. While giving detailed informations on Jain Vishwa Bharati University, she presented literature to the President.

President Musharraf agreed with the views of Acharya Mahaprajna that arms race is not good for human civilization. But realisation would never be possible until and unless the problems on the disputed issues were solved.

While praising the mission of Ahimsa Yatra, the Pakistani president expressed his hope that Ahimsa Yatra would come to Pakistan also to create an atmosphere of peace and harmony in the country, according to him only love, brotherhood, peace and harmony can bring betterment and welfare of human beings.
