Hosted by the Rt. Hon. Baroness Verma, Under Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change
The evening served as a gathering where “communities can come together to be candid and have an honest conversation,” remarked Baroness Verma in her introduction. Indeed there was an open forum and debate in which individuals of different backgrounds and religions expressed their opinions and perspectives on the topic of inter-religious harmony and free speech.
