As a symbol of restoring the rights to clean and healthy water by all people, GIWA Co-Founder/Co-Chair, HH Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji inspired and welcomed Hindu and Muslim leaders to plant trees along the banks of the River Gomti during His recent trip to Lucknow.

Amongst the leaders present were Respected Maulana Dr. Kalbe Sadiq Sahebji, Founder of Tauheedul Muslimeen Trust and eminent Islamic scholar, Mahant Divya Giriji, Mankameshwar Mandir, Lucknow, Janab Syed Abbas Murtaza Shamsiji, Joint Sec/Manager Shia Degree College, Lucknow, Managing Trustee, Bharat Ratna Ustad Bismillah Khan Foundation, Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji, Secretary-General of Global Interfaith WASH Alliance, and many others.

Pujya Swamiji gave the message of unity and brotherhood, sharing that when ‘Hari’ (referring to the Hindu community) and ‘Ali’ (referring to the Muslim community) come and serve together for the betterment of all then true Hariyali (greenery and prosperity) can be sustained in our nation.

The Gomti is a tributary of the Ganga (Ganges) River. Its 900 kilometre stretch provides water for some 18 million people living in India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh.
