"Religion can play a great role in promoting messages of inclusiveness, peace and harmony in society. This is why faith communities must persevere in inter-religious dialogue, particularly in conflict-ridden areas, says the Rev. Rana Youab Khan, international interfaith dialogues assistant to the Archbishop of Canterbury and to the Anglican Communion. Inter-religious dialogue is also crucial in multi-cultural, multi-faith places such as Canada, where people of different cultural backgrounds live side by side". "Since 2002, the Anglican Communion has been engaged in regular dialogue meetings with Muslims at Al-Azhar University, the oldest and most prestigious university in Cairo, Egypt, and in 2006, the Christian-Muslim Forum was launched. The Anglican-Jewish Commission and the dialogue between the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Chief Rabbinate of Israel have helped strengthen Anglican-Jewish relations, said Khan. The Archbishop of Canterbury and Sri Shruti Dharma Das Ji launched the Hindu Christian Forum at Lambeth Palace in 2011. Elsewhere in the Anglican Communion, Khan noted Anglican-Muslim co-operation in projects in Nigeria and Pakistan".
