Muslim Council of Britain welcomes Inter Faith Week 2021

Today marks the start of Inter Faith Week 2021; a week dedicated to strengthening inter faith relations, increasing awareness of the distinct faith traditions in the UK and understanding between people of all faiths and none.

This year, faith communities are reflecting on the fundamental concept of solidarity,  with faith leaders sharing messages on the importance of inter faith solidarity. Zara Mohammed, Secretary General of the Muslim Council has said:

“At a time when the world is still in the midst of a pandemic, faith communities continue to play a vital role in serving humanity for the common good. From delivering thousands of hot meals and care packages to giving much-needed pastoral care and bereavement support, faith communities strive to ensure no one is left behind.

“Faith leaders have also strengthened the call for climate justice at COP26, highlighting the need to protect our environment for future generations. This is Interfaith work at its best, understanding and celebrating what makes us unique and coming together to seek positive change for the benefit of all.

“I hope Interfaith Week 2021 serves as a time for reflection, prayer and further strengthening of the ties that bind.”
