"Ahimsa requires courage and strength," explains A.R. Rahaman "A quality impervious to weapons or to power. It is a mission to heal the world we live in and the collaboration with U2, thanks to their history, comes at a perfect time to revive this movement "
“It was an absolute joy to work with A.R. Rahaman, a superstar and an imposing and generous talent, "says The Edge" We are all particularly excited to visit his homeland in a few weeks. India has been on our wish list for a long time. The principles of ahimsa or non-violence, which have always represented us, have been an important pillar since we met to play together. We look forward to experiencing India's culture first hand, a place that unites the modern and the ancient as a whole ".
Bono says "The fight against injustice has always been very important for us. We were somehow formed by the words of Martin Luther King who was a student of Mahatma Gandhi. Martin Luther King said: The moral arc of the universe is long but it bends towards justice … I don't believe it anymore … It doesn't bow to justice, it must be bent towards justice …
We must be actively involved in our democracy to preserve it and show people how we feel and what we care about … We come as students to inspiration … This is ahimsa … non-violence … India he has done this to us … the greatest gift in the world … It is more powerful than nuclear energy, armies, marinas, the British Empire. It is the power itself. And it has never been so important. "
