Muslim, Jewish, Christian Leaders to Sign Historic ‘Bahrain Declaration’ on Religious Freedom

By Samuel Smith | The Christian Post

An interfaith gathering of religious leaders will sign a historic declaration for human rights and religious freedom authored by the King of Bahrain Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa at a signing ceremony in Los Angeles Wednesday evening.

Religious leaders of all stripes — Muslims, Christians, Jews and others — will gather at The Beverly Wilshire Hotel Wednesday night to commemorate the official release of the “The Kingdom of Bahrain Declaration” at an event that will be attended by the Sunni king’s son, Prince Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa.

Composed by King Hamad and signed on July 3, the “Bahrain Declaration” calls for an end to religious extremism and calls for greater religious tolerance in not only the Middle East but across the globe.
