Sports brings peace between countries, said tennis player Sania Mirza on Monday while participating at an event held at the WeSchool campus, Matunga.

“Sports can bring peace and equality without any boundary, race, culture or nation. We as sports people can become goodwill ambassadors and help spread peace globally,” said Mirza.

A research report presented by WeSchool students highlighted how maintaining peace at personal level would help in maintaining peace in society.

“We need free sharing of real-time information between law enforcement and intelligence agencies.” said Sivanandan when asked his view on terrorism destroying peace in our country.
