Conference of World Religions proved to be a surprising force for unity!

Our Chairman Wilson Chowdhry was invited to the "Conference of World Religions" a coming together of leading diplomats, faith leaders and humanitarians, in a spirit of peace and unity.  

The event was co-ordinated by the "Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of the UK"  and was presided over by their supreme spiritual leader Hazarat Mirza Nasroor Ahmad. 

The event attended by over 500 distinguished guests was held at the prestigious and historical Guildhall in London.  

Guest speakers included; Archbishop Kevin McDonald, representing the Catholic Church, Baroness Warsi - Senior Minister of state for the UK Foreign Office, Baroness Berrige - Chair of the UK Parliamentary Group on International Religious Freedom, Rabbi Professor Daniel Sperber - representing the Chief Rabbi of Israel, Dr Katrina Lantos-Swett - Vice Chair United States Commssion for International Religious Freedom, to name a few.

Wilson Chowdhry of the BPCA said;

"My first experience of this gathering was a positive one.  Presentations from key figures in both the humanitarian and religious sphere, added real weight to this attempt to promote global peace."

He added; 

"Although I am not generally keen on meetings such as these where talks are followed by a meal, the fact remains that solid connections were made with the Ahmadiyyah community, who have offerd to work on our project researching discrimination and persecution within Pakistan's eduction system. If this offer manifests into a tangible result, it will build on the work of both our communities and the wider communities we already have relationship with, promoting tolerance and solidarity."
