Describing the Mumbai terror carnage as an example of "negative conflict", American civil rights activist Martin Luther King III on Tuesday appealed to the world to adopt a "positive pattern of peace" to meet the challenges of this age and end war between nations.

"We must be commited, not only to ending war between nations but also to all forms of violence," he said delivering the Maulana Azad Memorial Lecture on the topic "A New Non-violent Revolution".

Contending that the world cries out for a new leadership with a vision to take on the challenges of this age, he said every nation should make stronger efforts to prepare its people to be "makers of peace, not war."

"We must create a generation who understands that peace is not just the goal but the way! If we accept this challenge, we can put an end to war and terrorism throughout the world," he said.

"And we can give the clarion call to invest the resources of every nation in human development instead of military arsenals," he said.

Martin Luther King III, son of legendary civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr, said if the world is committed to be committed followers of Gandhi and King Jr, "we must be commited, not only to ending war between nations but also to all forms of violence."
