All-religion meet in May
AN ALL-RELIGION conference would be organised in the last week of May this year to check immoral trafficking. In a meeting held here, members of the Cross-Border Anti-Trafficking Network constituted a task force for organising the conference.
Expressing his views on the occasion, Father Anthony said various religious leaders would be invited to highlight teachings about women and children in their religion. Sources said the Purvanchal Gramin Sewa Samiti would play a key role in organising the conference.
Father Anthony said all religions aimed at welfare of humanity, and spread the message of peace and harmony. He also cited the Bible which gave women an important place in society.
Dr Mazhar Ali Rashidi stressed the need to translate the concept of respect for all religions into action. He further said neglecting children and women would adversely affect the prosperity of the nation.
Purvanchal Gramin Sewa Samiti director Father GBN Josh said a task force had been constituted for the proposed conference. Father Anthony, along with Paster Chaco Thomas, Father Joseph and Father Vivek Kumar Das from Bahraich would be members of the task force.
