CHARLOTTE – Ahmadiyya Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Baptist, Unitarian and Jewish leaders spoke at the fourth annual interfaith Path to Peace conference and banquet March 22 near Northlake Mall.
The point of the gathering, hosted by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community-Charlotte Chapter, was to encourage faith-based organizations to focus on their commonalities instead of their differences.
The motto of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is “Love for All, Hatred for None,” and the group actively denounces terrorism.
“The greatest need now and in the future to bring about peace in the world is for faith-based organizations to really come together on our common humanity and our common goals,” Nadeem Faizi, president of the Charlotte chapter, said in his opening remarks. “Through dialogue we must overcome the numerous and various misunderstandings.”
