As President of the Committee of Religious NGOs at the United Nations, I wanted you to know that in 2011 we hosted a World Interfaith Harmony Week breakfast for about 150 people.

This year, The Office of the President of the General Assembly is working with the Committee of Religious NGOs and other NGOs at the United Nations to present World Interfaith Harmony Week 2012, Common Ground for the Common Good. The February 7 program, in the spirit of UN Resolution A/65/5, will be held in the United Nations General Assembly Hall. Over 1000 people have registered. This event is designed to share some of the ongoing, positive impact of our work around the world in building a culture of peace.

Just as it is hard for Christians to be tolerant of Islam, it seems hard for Muslims to be tolerant of the Baha’i Faith. When they are, we will see the dawn of true peace!
