Members of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Guyana yesterday called on President David Granger at the Ministry of the Presidency using the opportunity to inform him that the community supports the move of having social cohesion and national unity.
INews understands that the religious group informed Guyana’s Head of State about the work that the Baha’i Centre is presently involved in.
Evelyn Hamilton, moments after the meeting between her group and President Granger stated that the Baha’i community shares the vision of fostering greater social cohesion, building national unity, ensuring equal access to education and building strong communities.
“We shared with him [the] Baha’i principles and the Baha’i efforts to build strong communities. We have children’s class in communities, we have junior youth groups, we have youths in study circles [and] we have devotional meetings in communities and all of these are open to persons of all religions,” Hamilton posited.
The Bahá’í Faith was founded by Bahá’u’lláh in the 19th-century Persia and it must be noted that in Guyana, the earliest recorded mention of the Baha’i Faith dates back to October 1927.
