About Us

The objectives of Institute for Peace and Secular Studies (IPSS) are focused on the people’s agenda. Peace is achievable only if all citizens irrespective of their religion, gender and ethnicity are equal in the eyes and functioning of the State. We consider poverty, inequality, illiteracy, intolerance and greed as the main reasons behind war, terrorism and extremism. Thus equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities for all citizens are the only guarantee for a peaceful society, which is not possible without a Secular State.
