Bridge-builder Prince's comments welcome
I read Prince Charles's comments that were made on Thought for the Day and I really appreciated that he spoke up for freedom of conscience and religion.
Not only that, at a time when we are moving so rapidly apart from each other and respect for each other's beliefs is dwindling, Prince Charles has looked to bridge gaps within society.
At a time when Islam is wrongly being considered to be a religion of violence, Prince Charles mentioned the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) in a very positive light and he must be commended for that.
Prince Charles also mentioned various groups that are facing persecution across the globe, including Ahmadi Muslims.
Being an Ahmadi Muslim, I can personally relate, as I know many people who have been victims of such persecution.
Communities are facing State-backed persecution and it is vital that all must be done to alleviate such hardships.
