My spiritual Mission is to promote Religious pluralism and to encourage Pluralistic form of Governance and on the way personally promote goodwill amongst peoples of different affiliations, be it religious, nationalistic, race, linguistic or any other uniqueness.

If we can learn to accept and respect the God given uniqueness to each one of the 7 billion of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge. I believe knowledge leads to understanding, and understanding to acceptance and appreciation of people with a different point of view.

Through the Foundation for Pluralism, I have made a life time commitment to promote Pluralism - i.e., accepting and respecting every way people have come to worship the Creator, including but not limited to the Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Islamic, Jain, Jewish, Sikh, Zoroastrian and other systems of Beliefs.

Please remember, God has not signed up a deal with any group behind any one’s back- all of us have equal time and equal opportunity with God and no one has any special privileges. All of us belong to that creator and he belongs to all of us indiscriminately. 


PRESIDENT, Foundation for Pluralism - - This is the heart and soul of Mike Ghouse. He has defined what Pluralism is, and researching on Pluralistic form of governance. A few of the significant contributions; Wisdom of Religion radio program that for several years, bringing the beauty and essence of every faith to the public. The seven commandments of Pluralism is essence of the pluralism. Annual events like the Unity Day, Holocaust Commemoration, Thanksgiving Celebrations, Shanti-Shanti and events to bring people on the same playing field.

PRESIDENT, World Muslim Congress -  - Our Mission is driven by the Qur’an, Al-Hujurat, Surah 49:13: O mankind! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. The noblest of you, in sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Allah Knows and is Aware. Our mission is to work for a World of co-existence through inclusiveness and participation. As a member of diverse family of faiths, our efforts will be directed toward justice and equity to attain sustainable peace for the humankind with a firm grounding in truth. We cannot have advantages at the cost of others. Such benefits are temporary and deleterious to lasting peace. Indeed we aspire to promote goodwill amongst people of different affiliations, regardless of their faith, gender, race, nationality, culture or any other uniqueness blessed by the creator.
