Oman’s appreciation and respect for all religions
Muscat: On behalf of His Majesty the Sultan, HH Sayyid Fahd bin Mahmoud Al Said, Deputy Prime Minister for Council of Ministers, received today the attendants of places of worship in the Sultanate of Oman.
At the outset of the meeting, HH Sayyid Fahd said that the true Islamic religion focuses on tolerance and coexistence among all religions.
The principles of Islam are based on understanding and cooperation to serve all humanity, away from conflicts and wars, said HH Sayyid Fahd. He noted that the main idea is to reject imposing or favouring one religion over another, to avoid the occurrence of such acts of violence, killing and displacement as the ones to which Palestinians are now victim. These acts, he affirmed, are based on motives that do not represent any religion or sound belief.
The discussion dealt with ways to support joint cooperation among adherents of different religious, with the prime aim of spreading awareness about acceptance of the Other and enhancing dialogue to establish an environment of understanding among all segments of society.
The meeting touched on the significance of intensifying gatherings, exchanging expertise and holding conferences that serve constructive cooperation among followers of all religions in order “to preserve the basic human rights to live in peace” and in order to achieve the common interests of all peoples.
For their part, the attendants of places of worship expressed their sincere sentiments to His Majesty the Sultan and their best wishes to the Sultanate of Oman.
They also voiced their appreciation for the efforts made by the Sultanate of Oman in supporting interfaith dialogue. They praised religious freedom and the moderation policy pursued by Oman, noting that this policy had the greatest impact on the respect and recognition accorded to the country worldwide. They hoped that conditions will get back to normal in the world so that everyone could enjoy security and stability.
The meeting was attended by Dr. Mohammed Said Al Maamari, Minister of Endowments and Religious Affairs. – ONA
