Council of Dharmic Faiths Launched

A new UK faith body, The Council of Dharmic Faiths, has been launched at the House of Commons to represent Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Zoroastrianism.

The event was hosted by Stephen Hammond MP, who spoke on how British Hindus, British Sikhs and other communities are flourishing in the UK in their respective faiths and how well they have integrated into the British culture. The launch was also supported by Gareth Thomas MP and John Hemmings MP.

Leaders from the each faith group recited a prayer and, together with the MPs lit lamps of wisdom. The launch ended with an display of Indian dance.
