India and United States must play a key role in making the world a better place to live through their high moral leadership qualities and values, an advisor to US President Barack Obama said in Mumbai on Tuesday.
"India and America have greatest moral leaders and values. I believe it will help dealing with racism and any other problem in any society. Both the countries can demonstrate it through non-violence and spreading the message of love," Otis Moss III told students at H R College of Commerce in Mumbai.
Youths, the leaders of tomorrow, can determine how to confront racism, inequality and evils in the society. "We all must make sure that we are not carriers of them and ensure that we remove these roadblocks," Moss, who is an Advisor to Obama on faith-based council and neighbourhood partnerships, said.
Describing Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King as greatest leaders of 20th century, he said "India has an opportunity to demonstrate to the world the meaning of great leadership in 21st century. As India has a large and diverse population, it has a great history," he said.
Grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, Professor Rajmohan Gandhi and NCP MP Supriya Sule were also present at the event.
