Sant'Egidio and the Spirit of Assisi in Pakistan

Friendship, dialogue and peace at the centre of the meetings of a delegation of Sant'Egidio in Islamabad and Lahore

 
printable version

Friendship, dialogue and peace. These are the words at the centre of the meetings that have been held in recent days in Lahore and Islamabad, where a delegation of the Community of Sant'Egidio from Rome and from different cities of Pakistan had important meetings with the representatives of Islam and of the other Pakistani religions, as well as political Pakistani personalities such as the Governor of Punjab.

 

In Lahore, the delegation was received by Imam Abdul Kabir Azad, who leads the Badshai mosque, the oldest and largest in the Punjab. The imam, who has participated for a few years in the prayer meetings for peace organised by the Community, has also been the promoter of an important interreligious meeting held in Lahore on 2 November, in which the Catholic and the Anglican bishop, together with the Community of Sant’Egidio and representatives of various Sunni and Shia Islamic trends, as well as Sikhs and Hindus participated.

Today, in Islamabad, Pakistan's capital, at the Great Faisal Mosque, at the invitation of the International Institute for Research and Dialogue of the Islamic University in Islamabad, Marco Impagliazzo held a conference on "Dialogue among Religions and Peace", which was attended by many scholars and scholars of Islamic doctrine.

All showed great interest in the work of the Community in favour of the poor and in the initiatives in the Spirit of Assisi, especially in the rejection of violence on the part of religions and the responsibility for peace-building.
