Faith organisations will come together in London this week in a bid to end anger and hate among different religious groups.

The "Healing The World" event will see representatives from different religious organisations discussing the sources of hate in an attempt to create better interfaith relationships. The event will take place on 1 February 2012 at The London Central Mosque, from 12.30pm until 5pm.

Charity - the World Congress of Faiths has organised the event in conjunction with the International Association of Religions Freedom.

The event is also supported by Religions for Peace and the United Religions Initiative.

It will be officiated by Rabbi Jackie Tabick (Jewish), Rev Peter Owen Jones (Christian), Imam Abduljalil Sajid (Islam), Kiran Bali MBE (Hindu), Yann Lovelock (Buddhist) and Ajit Singh MBE (Sikh).

The event is being co-ordinated by Dr Richard Boeke, chairman of the British Chapter of the International Association For Religious Freedom.

The event is part of World Interfaith Harmony Week, which works to promote forgiveness, compassion and oneness among different faiths.

The event is free to attend and all participants are asked to register with the World Congress of Faiths, which works to develop better understanding, co-operation and respect between different religions.
