‘It is not often that a Buddhist, a Hindu, a Muslim and a Christian can spend an hour together without tempers flaring, or worse. But that is exactly what happened during a discussion that I attended last night at the FCCT.

Each of the four panelists had been invited to present his or her religion’s approach to the topic, “Food and Fasting: Dietary Practices in Religions”.’
