According to the author, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, the book, The Ideology of Peace is a gift to the new generation from a peace-loving person. It attempts to present a complete ideology of life based on peace, which can be summed up in these words: Peace is not an option: it is our destiny. We shall either live with peace or destroy ourselves without it. In this world it is undeniable that the future is for peace alone. There is no future for war or violence. Peace, always desirable for its own sake, has been vital to human progress in every age.
