Dear esteemed Friends!

On behalf of the Temple of Understanding India Foundation and my individual capacity as a National Trustee of the Baha’i Community of India I write to extend my full support and cooperation for the many initiatives to strengthen the United Nations Interfaith Harmony Week. The interfaith movement worldwide is gaining in strength and commitment with every passing day. As member of the Baha’i Community I am confident that the peoples of the world can learn over time to weaken and eventually eliminate the scourge of religious prejudices and get universal acceptance of the Golden Rule–‘do unto others as you would be done by’. With best regards!

Dr. A. K. Merchant, General Secretary, Temple of Understanding India Foundation; Trustee, National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of India & Lotus Temple.
