Rauff Hakeem is a former Cabinet Minister and Member of Parliament. Hakeem is the leader of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC), a member of the United National Front for Good Governance (UNFGG).

This modest effort of mine is an appeal to the better nature of fellow Sri Lankans. It is an effort to critically examine the forces that pull us apart. It attempts to reset Muslim relations with the Sinhala majority by addressing other communities' overarching concerns with regard to Muslims. I have also striven to frame this book as a socio-political covenant for the Muslims of Sri Lanka, for self-reflection. I hope this book will shed light on the politics of resentment that has overwhelmed us today. We are all human beings with a natural tendency to seek comfort in making categorical distinctions between our immediate group and others. In this light, the book reiterates the need for peace among all communities. Faith may be a common denominator, but the groups we belong to are socially constructed and not necessarily etched in stone. It is for us to decide which distinctions matter and which we can discard in order to integrate into the larger national mosaic. ~ Rauff Hakeem

'Voices of Peace' weaves together the narratives of ten former LTTE cadres and ten SLM personnel who actively fought at the front lines.

These once active agents in war; have become passive witnesses in the transition to peace. This book provides a platform for the stories of these unheard voices of Sri Lanka's protracted conflict and a safe space to restore their agency, by empowering them in the ongoing peace process. In 'Voices of Peace' we hear their story by listening to them rather than talking about them. In a country that has long been divided, it gives us the opportunity to interact with both sides of the conflict, blur the lines between divisions, and start thinking about our common goals. It is a discovery of what 'we do not yet know' about the conflict and post-conflict situation. By listening to their voices, we can discover what more needs to be done for peace and reconciliation in Sri Lanka. 'Voices of Peace' aims to encourage meaningful public discussion and the continuation of dialogue, and help pave the way to a Sri Lanka where diversity is recognized, accepted, and even celebrated.
