WE RESOLVE

to promote mutual respect and understanding among followers of all religions and peoples of all cultures, particularly through dialogue.

Let us look upon each other as sisters and brothers and, and let us appreciate difference as enrichment rather than fearing “otherness” as a threat.

WE BELIEVE

in the sanctity of life and the inherent dignity of the person

WE BELIEVE

that religion is an enabler of respect and reconciliation

WE BELIEVE

that dialogue among people of different religions and cultures is the path to lasting peace and social cohesion.

WE AFFIRM

the purposes and principles enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. These equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family are the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.

WE CONDEMN

violent conflict in the world, more so violence committed in the name of religion, and call for an end to violent hostility. We deplore loss of life and commend those who seek to alleviate suffering, as well as those who strive to promote wellbeing, harmony and peace.

WE OPPOSE

the instrumentalization of religion to make war

WE STRONGLY CONDEMN

terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, committed by whomever, wherever and for whatever purposes.

WE CONDEMN

hate speech and extremism that incite violence and fuel prejudice. KAICIID combats prejudice and intolerance, in all their forms.
