Pakistan: Christian-Muslim campaign for peace
April 20, 2017
The Pakistani bishops’ conference and a Muslim organization have begun a joint campaign for peace that will last through the Easter season.
The campaign’s symbol is an olive branch, and olive trees are being planted at churches, mosques, schools, and madrasas, according to a Fides report.
“Muslim leaders are asking for olive trees to be planted in seminaries where young Muslims study and can learn to become lovers of peace,” said Father Francis Nadeem of the bishops’ National Commission for Interreligious Dialogue and Ecumenism.
