Religions for Peace and Harmony is not only a motto or a slogan for people of good will on this earth against any conflict, hatred and violence, but it is a call to hasten such peace and harmony through action in our respective situations. The Centre for Inter-religious and Intercultural Dialogue (CIID), Department of World Religions and Culture, the University of
Dhaka, has been a dialogue partner with the Episcopal Commission for Christian Unity and Inter-religious Dialogue, Bangladesh Catholic Church (EC-CUIRD) for the past few years. These partners have worked together to enlighten younger generations from different faith communities in various levels at home and abroad, to learn about and to value each other’s beliefs.

An International Seminar on “Religions for Peace and Harmony” was jointly organized by CIID and EC-CUIRD on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at the Senate Bhavan Auditorium of the University of Dhaka. His Eminence Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, the President of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue (PCID) graced the occasion as the Chief Guest. Click here to read the full report.
