The Nur Damai Multifaith Peace Group of Kuala Lumpur dreams to foster friendship, trust, co- operation, respect and acceptance of our differences...

We celebrate our diversity by the understanding of ourselves, our faiths and of one another's belief systems. Our dream is for inner transformation with the aim of promoting the common values of love, peace, unity and justice among people of all religions locally and globally.

Our CC's activities include:

  1. Interacting with other interfaith bodies by attending and supporting their programmes on Malaysian interfaith and national issues.
  2. Establishing ties for ongoing dialogue with Sisters in Islam and Prof Ibrahim Zein of the International Islamic University in Kuala Lumpur (UIA). 
  3. On-going compilation of our interfaith stories that emerged from the Appreciative Interviews. We marked Nur Damai's first anniversary in January 2009 by bringing out a booklet of these stories of our Malaysian experience of intercommunal harmony.
  4. Our 18 meetings so far have been exciting events in themselves - so much enthusiasm is generated and there is a promisingly high level of energy and initiative.
  5. Our inaugural ceremony was an interfaith prayer and dedication ceremony attended by 20 friends of 5 faith traditions.
  6. We have had 7 exposure trips so far, the highlight of which was a visit to a Hindu temple where the group participated in the pooja and bhajans and asked the Hindu youth group at the temple questions.
