Baha’i community gather for celebration

Children in colourful costumes performing during the bicentenary celebration dinner to mark the birth of the founder of the Baha’i faith at the Red Crescent Hall in Ipoh ​.

WALKING down a red carpet, children in colourful costumes from various countries marched onto the stage at the Red Crescent Hall in Ipoh, earlier this week to mark a significant day for the Baha’i faith.

And as they began their performances, it was clear that the message conveyed was about the celebration of unity, as the event kicked off the bicentenary celebration dinner to mark the birth of Baha’u’llah, the founder of the Baha’i faith, on Oct 22.

The performances included Indian cultural dances, a lion dance, marshal arts performance and a solo performance on the guzheng, a classical Chinese instrument, by a 14-year-old girl.

The 450 people who attended the dinner applauded and cheered the performances.

In his welcoming speech, V. Segaran, representing the Ipoh Baha’i community, called on all the people of the world to recognise and accept their common humanity.

He said people should put aside their differences in race, culture, religion, creed and nationality to unite as one, adding that people should also work together for peace.
