German city hosts exhibition on religious tolerance in Sultanate
AACHEN The German city of Aachen hosted an exhibition of Religious Tolerance in the Sultanate of Oman in its 23rd station on Thursday.

The exhibition, which is organised and supervised by the Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs, aims at acquainting with Islam and disseminating culture of tolerance and peaceful coexistence among nations and peoples.

Winfried Castile from the Aachen Adult Education Center expressed his admiration over the exhibition on religious tolerance and addition of religious values, principles about Islam and information on the Sultanate.

He spoke about what he knew about the Sultanate’s cultural communication and openness to the nations and peoples since ancient times till date.

HE Dr Mohammad Bin Said Al Ma’amari, Scientific Adviser at the Minister’s Office and Supervisor General of External Exhibitions, said the exhibition of religious tolerance in Oman is a continuing opportunity, a renewed effort and on-going quest for religions, cultures and peoples who love goodness, happiness and security. He said the goal of the exhibition since the beginning has been to find a common ground among people and civilisation, and this gets support and presence of various institutions.

He added the exhibition has enjoyed a new positive interaction since its inception in April 2010, and has now grown and expanded to a wide range of workshops for a better mobility in the relations between religions and cultures in countries visited by the exhibition so far in Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Britain, Belgium and Estonia.
