Shanti Dal (Communal Harmony and Disaster Management)
India has history of communal violence, riots and such violence was based on the conflict of caste, religion and disparities in the society. Further these conflicts and hate campaign damaged peace and harmony of the society. The huge damage to the peace and harmony in the society compelled MGSN to work on this issue. In order to this, MGSN initiated an activity with the name Shanti Dal. It is working to create army of common people which will work for permanent peace and harmony in the Society. For this cause MGSN do research, organises workshop, recruit volunteers. MGSN has worked successfully on such sensitive issues.
