Fostering friendship with Malay leaders

Sharing hopes for better future inter-religious ties… participants at the roundtable discussion.

Sharing hopes for better future inter-religious ties… participants at the roundtable discussion.

In what is hoped to be the first of many, the inaugural roundtable discussion between CPHM and Perkasa was held on Aug. 8 at the Vistana Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. All 24 leaders from both organisations were given the opportunity to share their personal perspectives and experiences in hopes of developing a better understanding and trust of each other.

The purpose of this and future roundtable discussions with other Muslim NGOs is to find ways for Christians and Muslims to work together to promote religious peace and harmony in Malaysia.
