Victorian Premier Brumby wins 2010 Mahatma Gandhi Peace Award

Victorian Premier John Brumby has won the 2010 Mahatma Gandhi Peace Award for helping organise a Parliament of the Worlds Religions in Melbourne last year.


Canberra, Oct 13 : Victorian Premier John Brumby has won the 2010 Mahatma Gandhi Peace Award for helping organise a Parliament of the World's Religions in Melbourne last year.

The Government contributed 2 million dollars to the forum, which brought together Victorians and delegates from around the world to share traditions, cultures and friendships.

Abhay Awasthi, the executive director of the Hindu Foundation of Australia, presented the Mahatma Gandhi Peace Award to Brumby.

"I am very proud to accept the Mahatma Gandhi Award which I see as an award for the Victorian people and their commitment to promoting harmony across our community," news.com.au quoted Brumby, as saying. Victorians are proud of our diverse multicultural heritage and that's why our Government is proud to support programs, organisations and events that both promote and strengthen our rich multiculturalism," he added.

The award began five years ago to recognise individuals and organisations that support the principles espoused by Gandhi.
