A newly-formed Council of Religious and Spiritual leaders in Mauritius said
it would work towards promoting peace and harmony on the island, sources
close to the Council said.
"The setting up of this Council is an asset for Mauritius where several
cultures co-exist," Homa Mungapen, a Bahai member of the Council, said
She said the Board's Council comprises representatives of major religions
in the island nation.
According to Mungapen, the problem in Mauritius is that though people live
together, they do not know anything about each other's faiths.
"One of the Council's objective is to sensitise the Mauritian population on
the need to know about each others' religions. We also want to show them
that we are all the same," she said.
