Last week I was invited by Imran Ahmed, member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, Ireland and Dublin City Interfaith Forum, to the 6th Interfaith Peace Conference on April 28th in Lucan, County Dublin.
The conference, titled ‘Purpose of Religion, will be attended by people and speakers from major religions to strive towards peace in Ireland. Mayor of South Dublin, Cllr. Caitriona Jones, is also attending and speaking at the conference.
The conference is a great chance for me to reach out and network with communities of all backgrounds, especially considering my research focuses on the Pakistani community here in Dublin. The Ahmadiyya movement is something I hope to explore in more detail in the coming months and years.
