To bring spiritual happiness into the lives of mankind and to eliminate hatred from human heart is the mission of His Holiness Younous AlGohar a spiritual leader from UK who is now in Sri Lanka on a brief stay.
For him, achieving global peace is not a difficult task, if people can respect each other and spread love towards humanity there would be eternal peace in every heart and will love each other which results in global peace.
A born Muslim in Pakistan, young Younous had stopped practicing Islam when he was 14 years old as he understood that it would not help him to achieve his goal.
The turning point in Younous AlGohar’s life was meeting with Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi –the great spiritual God Master who guided and inspired him by his deep spiritual life and the golden rules of serving humanity which could bring peace amongst the humans.
“As a Muslim, we strictly had to follow the religion and were not exposed to any other true religion. Although I tried to practice the religion, I did not feel any connection to Allah or God. It was only during my college days I met an unknown person who took me to Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. I was told about the divine love and how to love mankind and how hatred can harm the manhood. I felt some eternal light from the God which came into my body and felt an immense pleasure which I had not experienced earlier. His inspirational speeches and divine love towards mankind attracted me,” His Holiness said.
His Holiness said that he started spreading the God Master’s love for the mankind 23 years ago and is spreading the word all over the world across the continents. “Mine is a spiritual life and teaching of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi was not taken from any spiritual book. I am here in Sri Lanka to promote spiritual love amongst the mankind as I have received a special power from God that could connect hearts with Him to bring spiritual happiness in their lives. Although people go to temples, mosques, church or any places of religious worship, their connection with the God is missing. That is why people become intolerant, extremists and fight with each other. Our purpose is not to disturb or criticise any religion and do not promote any religion but to spread the divine love,” the spiritual leader said.
According to him, spirituality is the core of humanity. “Once negativity is removed from your heart, he/ she become a tolerant and start loving each other. I have been coming to Sri Lanka for the past 12 or 13 years and I was able to inspire thousands and thousands of people about the humanity, the spiritual love towards the mankind and how this love should come from the bottom of their hearts and how to spread that love towards all. Although people practice their respective religions still they have failed to change their character. Hatred has won over peace and love across the globe,” His Holiness said.
His Holiness further said how money cannot buy peace of mind and added that more than the poor it is the rich that do not have peace of mind. “They are not bothered about peace, tolerance or love, their only intention is to make more and more money,” he added.
According to him, Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi is the last and final universal saviour who has arrived to rescue humanity. “He wants each and every human being to be spiritual and love each other. I am the only representative of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, who has the divine power and mercy towards humanity and can help out even world leaders to bring peace to the world. Pakistan is undergoing threats from terrorist groups but they have not yet identified that there is a spiritual leader who can solve the issues faced by them,” His Holiness added.
