Landmark Conference in London Puts God Centre Stage

LONDON, February 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

An historic conference to be held in London is to call on the world of religion to unite behind their shared goal of social and international peace. International faith leaders, secretaries of state and other key leading figures involved in promoting religious freedom are to speak on the role and relevance of God in modern life.

Concerns about the increasing restlessness and hostilities around the world as well as the spiralling threat of extremism will be at the forefront of delegates and speakers as they address what religion can offer today's troubled world. With representatives of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Chief Rabbi of Israel, the conference brings together the world community in the spirit of peace.

The conference, entitled 'God in the 21st Century', on 11th February at the Guildhall in London, aims to reinvigorate debate and consider whether religion can offer robust solutions and engender peace that is deliverable and sustainable and unite people across continents and cultures.

His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the worldwide Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, who has delivered addresses at parliaments across the world including the UK, USA and EU, will be the keynote speaker.

"Without God there can be no true peace. All religions have come from a Divine source and it is only by abiding by God's commandments and by acting with love, justice and truth can man truly find peace. One must be at peace within oneself, with one's fellow beings and with one's Creator; this is the path to peace.

"To strive for peace is a noble ambition and is something that the world has always stood in great need of. If we look at the situation of the world today, we realise that now, more than ever, it is a pressing and urgent need of the time for us to seek and pursue peace and harmony in the world.

"If religious leaders of the world can gather in peace for noble aims and lead their people to God then there is a hope for the world. It is my prayer that this conference strengthens the faith of believers everywhere and demonstrates the power of true faith."

Interfaith events, nationwide peace campaigns, fundraising for charities, blood donation drives and engaging in voluntary work in local communities are the hallmarks of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community that has organised this historic conference with the hope that it can help refocus people on serving God and serving mankind.

The conference has an impressive line-up of speakers, including:

  • Archbishop Kevin McDonald, Catholic Church
  • Rabbi Professor Daniel Sperber, Representing Chief Rabbi of Israel
  • Representative of His Holiness The Dalai Lama
  • His Eminence Archbishop Nektarios, representing His Beatitude, Patriarch Theophilos III the Patriarch of Jerusalem
  • Sheikh Moafaq Tarif, Spiritual Head of The Druze Community in Israel
  • Umesh Chander Sharma, Chairman of the Hindu Council UK
  • Dr Katrina Lantos Swett, Vice-Chair United States Commission on International Religious Freedom
  • HE President John Kufuor, Ghana
  • Rt Hon Eric Pickles MP, Secretary of State for Communities
  • Baroness Berridge, Chair of the UK All Party Parliamentary Group on International Religious Freedom or Belief
  • Rt Hon Dominic Grieve QC MP, The Attorney General
  • Rt Hon Baroness Warsi
