Magsaysay Award for Ramdas

Singapore, August 2
Former Chief of Naval Staff Admiral L. Ramdas has been awarded this year’s Ramon Magsaysay Award for Peace and International Understanding along with Pakistani journalist Ibn Abdur Rehman.

Both Admiral Ramdas, Chief of Naval Staff (1990-93) and Rehman, former Editor of the Pakistan Times, are co-chairmen of the Pakistan-India People’s Forum for Peace and Democracy. The citation by the Manila-based board of trustees said “in electing Admiral Ramdas and Abdur Rehman to receive the award, it recognises their reaching across a hostile border to nurture a citizen-based consensus for peace between India and Pakistan.” — UNI
