A high-level Pas delegation visited the newly installed leader of the Kuala Lumpur Archdiocese, Julian Leow, at his office yesterday to congratulate him on his appointment.
The delegation comprised Pas secretary-general Mustafa Ali; Pas national unity bureau chief Mujahid Yusof Rawa, tipped by some to be a future Pas leader; Tasik Gelugor Pas information chief Abdul Rahman Kasim, a key figure in Muslim-Christian dialogue initiatives; Harakah managing director Rosli Yaakop, a former deputy governor of Bank Negara; and Harakah columnist Shukor Harun.
They discussed inter-religious dialogue, how to promote greater Muslim-Christian cooperation and understanding, and ways to curb if not eliminate religious extremism.
Julian was installed as archbishop on 8 October.
The meeting yesterday came on the heels of an interfaith gathering, this one organised by the Stella Maris Church in Langkawi on 17 October. Among those at the event were Mujahid and Abdul Rahman, along with Fr Mark Michael and Christians and Muslims from the northern region (see below).
The gathering carried the theme ‘Hidup dalam harmoni demi kesejahteraan untuk semua kaum dan ugama’.
