Injamam believes that religions are meant for peace and harmony.  According to Injamam, it is easy to generate hatred in minds which do not have any knowledge of other religions. Consequently, stereotyping, false judgment and radical thoughts have become big issues. This is why Injamam wants to devote his life to training children and youth on religious harmony and dialogue with the goal of understanding each other. For Injamam, interreligious dialogue initiates empathy and acceptance of diverse faiths with respect.

The motto he identifies with is: “Interreligious dialogue creates connectivity and that leads to sustainable development and peace”.

Then the laws and precautions were highlighted by the expert. The afternoon session was participatory, participants were on a demo dialogue. They presented their own reflections on fake news and religious conflicts and provided some ideas on how to prevent communalism and fake news. The second day morning session was on ground rules and principles of IRD and SDG. Participants were introduced with the 17 SDGs and the main focus was on goal 16 (Peace, Justice & Strong Institution).
