World Religion Day
Initiated in 1950 in the USA by the Baháʼí faith, World Religion Day commemorates the role religion plays in uniting mankind and highlights ideas of spiritual principles that underly all the world’s religions.
In April 2002, the international governing council of the Bahá’í Faith, the Universal House of Justice, published a letter ‘To the World’s Religious Leaders’, in which it stated:
‘…interfaith discourse, if it is to contribute meaningfully to healing the ills that afflict a desperate humanity, must now address honestly…the implications of the over-arching truth…that God is one and that, beyond all diversity of cultural expression and human interpretation, religion is likewise one.’
