“We need to make people realize that discrimination is not sanctioned by religion. It’s time to move forward and not to reel in past mistakes. Fear and communication gap between communities are what is keeping us apart. We must accept the reality and reconcile the differences,” he said.
Stating that many organizations which didn’t see eye-to-eye have come together for the first time at the conference, he said, “What we have started today will resonate across the country and unite people. My main concern is how to bring people together. This is not about one religion only. I want to bring all communities together on one platform.”
