In the wake of growing inter-ethnic tensions across the globe, a commitment to safeguard religious harmony is important, said President Halimah Yacob on Thursday (June 20).
The President was referring to a pledge made by more than 250 religious organisations in Singapore on Wednesday at the opening of the three-day International Conference on Cohesive Societies.
The religious organisations had made a seven-part commitment to develop strong bonds across religions. These include an affirmation to uphold the freedom of religion and maintain solidarity in times of crisis.
