At the outset of the meeting, HH Sayyid Fahd said that the true Islamic religion focuses on tolerance and coexistence among all religions.


The principles of Islam are based on understanding and cooperation to serve all humanity, away from conflicts and wars, said HH Sayyid Fahd. He noted that the main idea is to reject imposing or favouring one religion over another, to avoid the occurrence of such acts of violence, killing and displacement as the ones to which Palestinians are now victim. These acts, he affirmed, are based on motives that do not represent any religion or sound belief.

The discussion dealt with ways to support joint cooperation among adherents of different religious, with the prime aim of spreading awareness about acceptance of the Other and enhancing dialogue to establish an environment of understanding among all segments of society.
