Gul Khan of the All Ladies League, London interviewed Farrukh Dhondy, former Commissioning Editor of Channel 4 and Matteo Bergamini, Shout Out UK founder, was interviewed by Quince Garcia of Roadworks Media.

Universal Peace Federation is very keen to support the World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW) annual event because it has been a strong promoter of interfaith to defuse radicalisation. UPF has been an international supporter of the initiative from its inception in October 2010. There are several clips of the WIHW commemoration in the United Nations in the UPF introduction video which was shown during the programme. (Photo Dr Afzal Ashraf)

We held an event on the 'Decline of the Political Centre Ground' during Parliament Week 2016 last November. http://ow.ly/5nfD308rMql
