    Recently there was an international conference in Lahore Pakistan that promoted "interfaith harmony" and thought I'd share it here.. The Baha'i International Community was represented by Chong Ming Hwee:


    25 December 2016
    LAHORE, Pakistan —

    The Baha'i International Community (BIC) has emphasized the need for a deeper understanding of human oneness in fostering peaceful coexistence between different religions.

    Speaking at an event organized by the government of Pakistan to promote interfaith harmony—the International Seerat Conference in Lahore—BIC representative Chong Ming Hwee stated "In the human body, cooperation ensures the functioning of that system... Similarly, civilization can be seen as the outcome of a set of interactions among closely integrated, yet diverse components—components which have transcended the narrow purpose of tending to their own existence."

    "And just as the viability of every cell and every organ depends upon the health of the body as a whole, so should the peace and prosperity of every individual, every family, and every people be sought in the well-being of the entire human race."
