SEREMBAN: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Youth has called for inter-faith dialogues to build on the understanding and co-operation among the different races and religions.
PKR acting Youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin said the space for civil society to speak on issues of concerns should not be closed off.
"In fact civil society institutions should be encouraged to give their views in a respectable and responsible manner. This can help opposing groups understand the feelings and aspirations of each other and avoid suspicion and prejudice which could divide society," he said in his policy speech at the PKR Youth assembly Friday.
Shamsul Iskandar said the party's Youth wing fully supported any effort by prime movers of civil society and religious organisations in the country to hold inter-faith dialogues and joint activities.
Later at a press conference, he said PKR would start to have inter-faith dialogues within the party.
