UAE sets a model for inter-faith culture: envoy

Madrid - Led by President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the UAE embraces and allows followers of the divine religions to practice their rituals freely on its land amid an atmosphere of love and peace,' UAE Ambassador to Spain said Wednesday.

Speaking on the occasion of organisation of the World Conference on Dialogue in Spain yesterday, Sultan Al Qurtasi said the two-day religious gathering in Spain can lay the ground for a long term strategy for understanding between followers of divine religions and other creeds in order to build common principles for the whole humanity.

He told WAM that the global interfaith dialogue conference, which is being organised by the Makkah-based Muslim World League (MWL) and attended by more than 200 prominent religious figures representing the monotheistic religions Islam, Christianity and Judaism from around the world, would provide an excellent platform for scholars to explain the right concept about widely circulated misunderstandings which stand on the way of inter-faith interaction. 'It will also give support to efforts to confront and denounce terrorism and extremism, ' he added.

'The conference will allow Muslim scholars to present the Islamic philosophy and solutions to today's problems of the humanity and share expertise and experiences with others,” he indicated.

After hosting the Alliance of Civilisations, Madrid has become the capital of dialogue and religious pluralism. By organising this outstanding event, the Muslim World League hopes to reach a number of different objectives:- underline the fact that religion is an important factor in human societies, contemplate on the success and failures of past experiences of dialogue among the followers of different faiths and cultures in order to enhance their positive aspects and avoid their negative aspects in the future dialogues, study and analyse the obstacles which might prevent dialogue from reaching its desired objectives and co-ordinate different efforts at the international level to counteract emerging challenges arising from negative behaviours which are incompatible with human nature and universal human values. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
