Religious leaders have gathered to promote peace, understanding and harmony.

Members of three churches and the Langwarrin-based Ahmadiyya Muslim group got together at St Peter’s Anglican Church, Mornington, to demonstrate respect and tolerance.

Imam Wadood Janud, of Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Victoria, and Father Philip Newman, vicar of St Peter’s, organised the event.

Both leaders shed light on how Islam and Christianity promoted peace and tolerance in society before they cut a cake featuring the Ahmadiyya motto of “Love for All, Hatred for None”.

Father Newman said the visit would help break down misconceptions and fears.

Imam Janud said the way forward was to unite on a platform of serving humanity. He invited church members to visit the mosque. “We would love to host you all, the way you honoured us today,” Imam Janud said.
