February Interfaith Week (March to One World Religion)


King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia in October 2011open his interfaith center for tolerance called The King Abdullah Center for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue in Vienna, Italy(source). The governing board for the center is set to be staffed by two Muslims (Sunni and Shiite), three Christians (Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox), a Buddhist, a Hindu and a Jew. The organization will also have a consulting body with 100 representatives from the five world religions plus other faiths as well as academics and members of civil society(source). In November of 2007 King Abdullah made history when he met with Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican, making him the first Saudi monarch to visit the pope(source). 

King Abdullah II of Jordan and Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad  in 2010 proposed to the United Nation General Assembly, World Interfaith Harmony Week. The proposal was special week in February of every year, during which the world's people, in their own places of worship, could express the teachings of their own faith about tolerance, respect for the other and peace(source).
