Ashok K Pandey, spokesperson, IFLC, is very delighted on the arrival of IFLC to India, he said: “Language of love is the legacy of India’s Sufis and Saints. It is a country of Ram, Buddha, Nanak, Chishti and Teresa, who are the true apostles of love and peace for entire humanity. IFLC too is an attempt to spread universal peace through our young emissaries (school children). Peace is contagious by nature which can prevail only through our mutual and collaborative efforts.”
