In this Didomi Podcast episode, Wissam al-Saliby interviews Canon Dr Andrew Smith, Director of Interfaith Relations for the Bishop of Birmingham of the Church of England. Dr Smith shares, “We are not called to tolerate our neighbour or to respect him. I am commanded to love him!” But what does it mean to show Muslims, Hindus and followers of other religions in the United Kingdom that we love them? And how did the peacemaking efforts that Dr Smith has led since 2000 influence his response to this month’s tensions in his city and to the violence that erupted between Hindus and Muslims in Leicester and Birmingham in the UK?
