Religious differences are often pegged as the source of tensions in diverse communities, but religion should be part of the solution as well, as most teach acceptance of others and the importance of doing good.
On Thursday (June 20), academics and religious leaders at a plenary session for an interfaith conference called on all believers to draw from what they have learnt in their own faiths to work together to promote peace.
Faith has an irreplaceable role in nurturing peace and harmony, said Spanish Bishop Miguel Angel Ayuso Guixot at the International Conference on Cohesive Societies.
Around 1,000 scholars, government officials, and members of religious and civil society groups from close to 40 countries are attending the three-day event.
