Archbishop Joseph D’Souza, President of the All India Christian Council has been invited to the Second Global Unity Forum meeting in Indonesia. The two day international summit will be held on 25 and 26 October 2018 in which President Joko Widodo and many other Indonesians will participate to “foster the emergence of a truly just and harmonious world order, founded upon respect for the equal rights and dignity of every human being” (Gerakan Pemuda Ansor Declaration on Humanitarian Islam, point 31).” Accepting the invitation, Archbishop D’Souza stated: “This kind of unity movements are critically needed around the globe in the face of
the radicalisation and politicization of religion.
The leadership of the major religions of the world needs to come together to handle the menace of hate propaganda, violence and the deliberate polarisation of society.” The Global Unity Forum is an initiative of millions of moderate and humanitarian Sunni Muslims to distance themselves and take a stand against the radicalised elements of Islam that have resorted to violence and terrorism. The first international summit of Moderate
Islamic Leaders was held in 2016 in Jakarta, attended by approximately 400 Muslim scholars from 30 nations and organized by the world’s largest Muslim organization called ‘Nahdlatul Ulama’ (NU).
