ARUSHA COMMUNITIES CONGREGATES TO FOSTER CO-OPERATION
Since independence, Tanzania has developed with a broad based nationalistic outlook that has commendably remained free of racial, religious and ethnic tensions.
In the light of current global trends with indications of growing religious, racial, sectarian and ethnic conflicts arising out of political undercurrents in many parts of the world, it is recognized that as peaceful citizens of Tanzania, we need to reach out to diverse communities and wider societies in Tanzanian in an endeavor to help foster greater and closer bonds of understanding, tolerance and mutual respect.
To this end, as a first step, Arusha Jamaat took the initiative of inviting representatives the Asian communities residing in Arusha for a broad based discussion.
A meeting was held at Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Madressah Hall in Arusha, on March 1st, 2014. Representatives of the following communities accepted our invitation for the meeting.
