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.

    No doubt every right thinking Guyanese both at home and in the diaspora share the same sentiment as Guyanese cannot see any light at the end of that tunnel. How can this be achieved when Indians and others who are supporters or perceived to be supporters of the largest political party are constantly robbed, murdered, harassed or dismissed from their jobs without due course to redress?
    The Bahai community should tell Granger to ensure that he keeps his promise that he would be a good president and a president for ALL regardless of political, racial or religious persuasion.They should tell Granger that elections must be fair and free from fear, and the PNC thugs must accept the results once declared. They must tell Granger to stop the witch hunting of opposition members/supporters and ensure all employment is based on merit and discard cronyism to the scrap heap forever. CAN HE DO IT? If he is a good president and a president for ALL, YES HE CAN!
