HWPL holds events in Jordan, Bahrain seeking peace
The Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) has organised several events across the world to mark the World Interfaith Harmony Week ending on Sunday.
According to a press statement, interfaith discourses were held simultaneously in Jordan and Bahrain, where various religious leaders compared each other’s scriptures for promotion of peace in the region.
'In Jordan, Catholic and Islamic religious leaders tried to find a way for keeping prophesies written in each scripture in order to leave peace as an inheritance for future generations. It was notable that all religious leaders signed peace agreement for cessation of war and world peace showing their role of each religion in establishing world peace,' it said.
In Bahrain, the religious leaders of Hinduism, Judaism, Orthodox and Sikhism shared their 'perspectives to find an answer for peace in religion'.
The United Nations in 2010 adopted the first week of February as World Interfaith Harmony Week. HWPL holds peace dialogue of World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Office concurrently in 12 countries, including some in the Middle East and Oceania.
