We don’t know very much about the other faith. Such type of events provides us an opportunity to come close and it creates a sense of togetherness.The majority of the guests were of the opinion that events like these are so meaningful and important because you focus on the similarities instead of the differences. Mr Muhammad Anis, a prominent Muslim Community member of the area said that the most important part of this evening today is inclusion. The adherents of different faiths and cultures came together and spoke about spirituality, kindness and humanity.
