Reclaim religions from distortion
Religious education should become mandatory, especially now in tumultuous times.
The barbaric persecution endured by religious and ethnic minorities across the globe demands an immediate implementation of the inestimable values which religions espouse.
Religions have co-existed peaceably for centuries. Regrettably, religions are being deliberately abused by irreligious lunatics for reasons related to greed and the pursuit of power.
It is time to rediscover the true meaning of religions and unite to reclaim our faiths from distortion.
Only then can we combat racism, discrimination, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
