Qatar conf. recommends inter-faith center creation in Doha

DOHA, May 9 (KUNA) -- The Fifth Doha Conference of Inter-Faith Dialogue, which wounded up here Wednesday evening, recommended the establishment of a permanent center for inter-faith dialogue in Doha.

The recommendation was made in the final communique of the just-concluded religious gathering following the approval of Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.

Commending the recommendation, the Qatari leader considered that the center would be a major scientific achievement for the sake of rapprochement and conflux among religions.

In their final communique, the conferees called for the promotion of spiritual values and world peace, which constitute the spirit of religions.

Comparative religions, involving philosophical, spiritual and social dimensions, should be taught at universities and institutes as a way of academic contribution to boosting and disseminating the spiritual values of religions, they requested.

Religious leaders were also urged by the conference to use the language of understanding, reconciliation and dialogue in their religious sermons.

However, the conferees condemned any desecration of religious sanctities and blasphemy of religious leaders, urging social and media institutions to shy away from using typical images that fuel hostility among religions.

The approved establishment of the inter-faith center will be chaired by Ibrahim Saleh al-Naimi, former director of the Qatar University, with an advisory board of Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders.

More than 150 scholars from the Islamic, Christian and Jewish faiths partook in the three-day event themed "The Spiritual Dimension of Faith and Co-existence of Human Societies". (end) ma.att.
