Peace and Justice in view of Islam and Hinduism was the theme of this edition.
Rameshchandra Sinha, head of India’s Philosophical Studies Council, was among the speakers at the forum.
He elaborated on the concept of man getting close to and becoming one with God and the differences in views of Islam and Hinduism on this issue.
