doha • The fifth annual inter-faith dialogue conference, which will kick off at the Marriott hotel tomorrow is expected to come out with an announcement establishing a permanent centre for dialogue of religions in Doha.

A decision to establish the center was taken in the last conference held here in April last year. This year's conference will bring together about 150 religious scholars and leaders from three prominent religions in the world-Islam, Christianity and Judaism.

The conference will give some focus on Islam-Judaism dialogue, side by side with Islam-Christian dialogue, which had been on the agenda in the previous conferences as well.

The three-day event is being hosted by the Shariah Faculty at the Qatar University. The topics for discussion include fundamentalism versus religious dialogue, pluralism, Muslim women in the West and the concept of God in the three religions.

Dr Aysha Al Mannai, Dean of the Shariah Faculty said, the conference will provide equal opportunity for all the participants to express their views, which will be in true spirit of dialogue.

The conference is also expected to come out with a declaration containing proposals for strengthening dialogue and understanding between religions.
