Inter-religious conference demands release of Nigerian kidnap victims

Catholic World News - May 15, 2014

An inter-religious conference in Amman, Jordan, concluded on May 15 with a joint statement condemning all forms of violence, and especially the kidnapping of Nigerian schoolgirls. The meeting demanded “their immediate release, so that they can return to their families and their schools.”

The meeting in Amman, co-sponsored by Jordan’s Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies and the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, also affirmed the primary role of the family in the education of children, and importance of religious education, and the need to protect religious freedom.
