Muslim, Christian Scholars Call for Cessation of Sectarian Hostilities
TEHRAN (FNA)- Prominent Muslim and Christian religious scholars attending a forum in Eastern France asked for an end to sectarian violence and discrimination against the followers of different faiths.
More than 50 religious personalities took part in the Second Islam-Christianity Forum in Lyon meeting, and issued a final statement against sectarian violence.
The forum was held after the rise in violence against different religions in France and in line with creation of a suitable ground for further convergence of religious figures to confront radical currents and movements.
Part of the statement reads, "We want to coexist and live with each other peacefully to serve all citizens and have a friendly life, and our aspiration is to materialize living in a peaceful society alongside all men and women with all their good wills, diverse cultures, religions and beliefs."
