This week, we share with our readers a video lecture on understanding the value of Diversity around us and within us. It also discusses how we should live in a plural society with divergent religions, ideologies and views. The lecture goes on to explain how differing interpretations of our religious texts can occur and discusses possible ways to move forward as a Muslim community. I believe that you will find the content beneficial to you as it may enhance our understanding of diversity that surround us.
