The Parliament Sends Greetings to Religions For Peace

On behalf of the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions and its Board of Trustees, Board Chair Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid extends greetings to Religions For Peace, which is presently holding its ninth world assembly.

Approximately 900 are gathered for the assembly this week in Vienna, Austria, where religious communities are discussing ways to “welcome the other.”

“The world needs more interfaith activism for harmony among religions to achieve world peace and sustainable development,” says Imam Mujahid.  The Parliament Chair added that Religions For Peace is doing good work for humanity.

Imam Mujahid concludes, “the Parliament believes that not only the communities of faith need to work with each other, but that all interfaith organizations need to work with each other as well.”
