One of the baffling challenges that the religionists the world over face today is that of inter-faith relations in general and Muslim-Christian ties in particular. Given the history of intense conflicts and grave injustices perpetrated by both communities, the adherents of the two largest religions of the world are laden with the burden of harsh memories. While the history witnessed the bitter reality of the Crusades, the present plight of Christians in many parts of the Muslim world continues to create misconceptions about Islam in the minds of many Christians. In such an environment which actually seems to promote division, a two-day international seminar on “Building Communities of Peace: Muslim-Christian Relations in Asia” gave glad tidings to the mainstream peace-loving Muslims and Christians. This event was jointly organised by Henry Martyn Institute (Hyderabad), Zakir Hussain Institute of Islamic Studies (New Delhi), Indialogue Foundation (New Delhi) and Islamic Studies Association (Delhi).
