[HWPL] Appreciation Plaque from Member of Parliament of Malaysia: “I was moved by Chairman Man-hee Lee’s dedication to humanity”


[HWPL] Appreciation Plaque from Member of Parliament of Malaysia:  “I was moved by Chairman Man-hee Lee’s dedication to humanity”

Peace Appreciation plaque, with national landmarks engraved on it, was presented to Chairman Lee on behalf of the Government of Malaysia by Member of Parliament Karupaiya Mutusami, in recognition of Chairman Lee's commitment to peace for humanity.

Any politician with a sincere desire for peace for the people of their country cannot turn a blind eye to the 10 Articles and 38 Clauses of the DPCW (Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War), which HWPL has drafted and propagated as a solution for ending global conflict and achieving peace. At the very least, we should look into its content, and if our thought and will is one and the same, there is no reason not to join and support it. What follows is the story of Karupaiya Mutusami, a member and Chairman of Padang Serai of the People's Justice Party (PKR) in Malaysia, who is highly reputed as 'Member of Parliament for the citizens’.

As someone with a long-term interest in the work of peace, Karupaiya Mutusami could not help but marvel at the activities of Chairman Man-hee Lee and his peace delegation, who have been pressing for peace through 30 world peace tours to date.

Member of Parliament of Malaysia Karupaiya Mutusami, who attended the '2019 Southeast Asia Peace Forum' as an international guest, delivers a plaque of appreciation to Chairman Lee.

Assemblyman Mutusami gladly accepted the invitation to the ‘2019 Southeast Asia Peace Forum’ held at Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel, Cambodia, on February 21, 2019, during HWPL's 30th Peace Tour. He also expressed recognition for what he had learnt from Chairman Lee, a devotee to world peace, through an appreciation plaque which was engraved with the national landmarks of Malaysia. He was able to fully engage with the peace projects and values propagated by HWPL through presentations he heard delivered by HWPL officials at the forum.

He also sympathised with the necessity of submitting the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) to the UN for enactment as international law. He immediately signed in support of the DPCW and witnessed firsthand the longing for peace among the youth of Southeast Asia.

This was due, in no small part, to a special feature that was held at the event. Southeast Asian youth who attended the forum wrote and delivered handwritten letters, in support of the DPCW, to the leading representatives of each country in attendance, including government officials and parliamentarians of nine Southeast Asian countries. HWPL seized this golden opportunity to unite high-ranking officials and youth for the cause of peace. Leading officials immediately responded in kind, in writing, through writing their own letter, signed with a determination not to ignore the voices of the youth. In addition, the leading officials of Southeast Asian nations signed their support for the DPCW. All these activities were reported through the local media and their promises have been recorded in history.

That day, HWPL appealed for support of the 10 Articles, 38 Clauses of the DPCW as they urged people from all walks of life, including youth, faith leaders, NGO heads, and women around the world, to write handwritten letters of peace to their respective heads of state to inform them of the will of the people for peace through the DPCW.

On that day, Southeast Asian youth wrote handwritten letters, expressing their wish for peace through support of the DPCW, and delivered it to high-ranking officials from nine countries in attendance. They also gave a peace performance with Chairman Lee.

HWPL Chairman Man-hee Lee delivered a keynote speech on that day, saying, “I have come here today with the intention of making a very strong request. Culture and science today has advanced, but science is threatening the existence of humanity. Now there is one answer that can end wars and achieve peace. It is the 10 Articles and 38 Clauses of the DPCW.” In addition, Chairman Lee said, "A lot of students, youth and women have sent numerous letters (to high-level officials) to every country." With strong conviction, he said, "Who elect ministers and politicians? Isn't it the people? Then, the will of the people must be respected. Now that we have the answer, every leader in this global village must take heed and achieve peace.”

In an interview with local media after the event, Chairman Lee also said, “Presidents in each country are receiving 10,000, 20,000, or 100,000 handwritten letters from many young people. It's time for you to sign in support of it. Those who don't sign it will expose their desire for war. An entire nation won't just stand by if one decides not to support it."

Chairman Lee's sincere appeal was enough to stir Assemblyman Mutusami into action. Mr. Mutusami has continued to advise and support HWPL's activities since that peace tour.

Karupaiya Mutusami is a member and Chairman of Padang Serai of the People's Justice Party (PKR), which rivals the current ruling party.

  1. It is war that hits the innocent the hardest, especially women, youth and children. Why must a mother lose her son to war? The DPCW - a legal instrument that Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL, a 92-year-old Korean War veteran, has conceived and garnered support for through 31 peace tours with politicians, Heads of State, religious leaders, academics and youth - is a solution to ending all conflict. I believe that it will be enacted as international law and peace will come when it is presented to the UN in late 2022 or early 2023. Kudos to Chairman Lee and HWPL.
